Dec 1, 2007; P Hugill: This morning on my way to the feed store, I drove down to the trailer parking area between the bridges [Central Trails Staging off of Hollister] to look at the trail leading into the trees [Effie May Crossing area]. The entire trail is under water and the river is running. The water extends all the way from the tree line on the south side up to the berm on the north side. All the junk has been washed down and rests against the berm including a few trees that were uprooted and thrown in the mess. There is also something dead in there, judging by the smell. Please warn everyone away from trying to ride thru the mess.
