Open lead cutting off deshka x-over! Monday mar. 22
There is at least a 10 foot long open lead cutting off the Deshka Crossover/Su Valley Winter Trail at the western bank of the Su where it goes onto the land. One guy tried skirting it and went into the river Monday. He is safe and the machine was pulled out.
You can still enjoy the SVWT from Big Lake to Corral Hill, but you won't be able to go north overland to Susitna Landing. Users can still come South from Susitna Landing (not sure how trail condtions are up there) over the Swamps to the Susitna River where they will be stopped by the open lead.

I can't edit the original post so I have to use REPLY.
After additional information it turns out the Deshka X-Over is still good coming off of the Susitna on the south end of the overland trail. Bill from Willow Trails Committee just groomed it on Monday. The area where the open lead makes the Su Valley Winter Trail impassable is actually where the trail exits the swamp heading north back onto the Su into Susitna Landing. This is approximately 21 miles from DLOA.
