Gorgeous weather - Trails were dry.
In the morning, four of us rode the east Blue Trail to the Black Diamond in the morning. (1) On the side path to the long rock ledge, I cut a fallen tree that was suspended at eye level across the trail.
I returned late afternoon and rode around the north end. (2) First time on the northeastern part of the Blue Trail - very scenic but long stretches of fairly unforgiving rock gardens - ended up a lot of hike-a-bike!
Finally got a better sense of direction in the whole north section after riding most of trails and taking snapshots of the intersections. (3) When leaving, noticed the south entrance off the parking lot was completely overgrown. Trimmed it back (See before and after photos)
