My buddy and I decided to ride this today, and it did not turn out so well. Although maintenance on the trail hadn't been done since last season, there was not a great deal of wind falls, however the trail markers have not been kept up. This caused a huge problem for us near Mr. Big when the trail markers disappeared. We ended up following what we thought was the trail until we ended up near Stack Rock, and eventually found our way back to the road. If you've never done Eastside before, don't plan on relying on the trail markers.
