Trees down, lower Larch Mtn trail

Post by squidvicious » January 19th, 2021, 4:02 pm

There are two big trees down, very low on the Larch Mountain trail. First there's a big rootball tight up against the rock face. Looks a mess as you approach, but up close there's room to step through and get by pretty easily.

A few feet beyond that is a big duck-under. This would be a simple one, except there's a big slope of slick, loose mud underneath that came down with it. There's a narrow path being tracked across the top that's flattening out and pretty stable, and objectively it's fine, but subjectively, at least for those of us with a fear of falling, it feels like you're going to slide straight into the creek.

No pictures of my own, but these from alltrails show it well
