Tree is still there, just the top broke off like @white-rhino said. Thereís enough left it still affects the possibility of hitting your windshield frame and cowl or hood.

We were there 2 weeks ago. @NightKrawler71 has pics.

The tree is broken off 6-7 ft in the air so you still have to drive it the same way. Sadly I think it will be gone soon. (1 month, 1 year) who knows. It will certainly be sad.

Also sad to see someone cut a bypass around the drop in to Lionís Den. WTF!
Alot of the trails looks like they have been seeing abuse. Fall crawl was nothing but sxs throwing beer cans everywhere. Its a shame. And you call them out on it and they just ignore you. Even had a guy go down in on little jager andnwas throwing the beer cans but up at the people who were kicking then off the top.
The guys that run that place only have so much time to fix things yano.
And to get to some of the stuff with a dozer dont look fun. I would like to see some exits fixed. But all the heavy rain and stoms over the last few years have put a hurting on some of the terrain.

RCOR They smoothed out waterfall as well. Im sure lower damnation will come back around but I don't understand why. Id rather see them get upper passable, and get the top of Crawfords Cry reopened.

Also, Your Turn was impassable when we was there (weekend before fall crawl). I like seeing trail maintenance but Id rather see work on trails that need re-opened than smoothing out existing ones.

It was still intact when I was there in July.
It was flat for fall crawl, same with Frankenstein the dozed it too. And buds bypass upto white tail crawl.

Why would they do that?? Was just starting to get good. Trying to make it over lander friendly?

I like the evarts side. Only thing that i like about putney is you dont have to travel the roads from the cabins.

If you have a big trailer evarts cabins is tight to get up top.
I have a 28'+5' goose and its tight getting it to the top of the black mountain cabins.

white-rhino Either side works. Evarts is closer to gas and basic food. But if you want decent food you have to go into Harlan from either side. Camping better on Putney. Both sides have decent cabins. Since you are going to wheel the whole mountain, both sides have merit.

Trails usually aren't bad. Mason Jar will get busy. Just have to plan it right and not get in a rush. We usually don't have a problem.

Camping tends to be packed.

Bebop Putney side for me. All Jimmy Smith bouncers group. We're pretty hard to miss.
