Stopped at Memorial Rock (only one so far) near the top of 4, and then
continued up to the top of Goat Mountain for a break.

I was amazed how few moto tracks we came across. We laid down virgin
tracks on several trail sections. Had to stop & clear a downed tree near
the bottom of trail 15.
Yeah, the west end of Trail 4 is certainly difficult going eastbound. We struggled up that with a 950SE and a R100GS a couple of weeks ago. Those of us on "dirt bikes" had an easier time. We didn't take time for pictures, either.
