We have been alerted that the Placer Country Parks trails crew has headed out to clear this tree. It might be gone by today!

Map and photo of large tree blocking Poppy Trail in Hidden Falls Regional Park. It's located about half way down on Poppy Trail. There is no way a horse can go over it - it's about 3 - 4 feet high. Bikers can lift their bikes over, agile hikers can climb over it. Some folks have hacked a way around it, but using that rough cut trail encourages more trail cutting and damage. Don't use it.
This is a large tree and will require a substantial chain saw and a group of maintenance folks. Placer County Parks has received a maintenance note about it and will let us know when it is cleared.
