Boulder falls on Barr Trail

Barr Trail regulars have reported a huge boulder that fell onto Barr Trail in the past couple of days. The boulder is about 10 feet across and blocks about 3/4ths of the trail at a spot about 100 feet above the upper Incline Trail junction (below the Experimental Forest).

Friends of the Peak members know about the new obstacle, but they probably won't be moving it any time soon. Those who have seen it have reported hearing popping and cracking on the rock faces above the trail, so they recommend being aware of freeze/thaw activity on the trail.
