Encounters & Observations: The Upper Gussy has a few new wet spots that will need taking care of later this year. Stay off the Poly Brody Forest Road if you can. If you want to ride the Gussy, park at the Echo Valley lot and head back down the driveway, take a right onto Sanford Rd and ride the Gussy up and down from the Jeep Road.

Looks like a dirt bike is coming in, too, by looks in what you can see in the picture below. A friend of mine mentioned that he road last weekend and saw signs of an MXer on the forest road.
