Washout
Skidder hill was very rough and soupy from the spring. East to west is downhill, which is easiest. Bypass was open and easy for fullsized truck.

The trail was in a pretty typical condition to what it normally is. The washout from the natural spring area is still really deep and off camber. The bypass can be taken by a high-clearance 4x4. The off camber and mud section can be tackled by a high-clearance 4x4 with optimal ground clearance and plenty of suspension flex. This section was very wet and mucky. This area is really beautiful in the woods.
