    yeah, that looks to be the second ledge way more flat than I've ever seen. I've read all the NC4x4 posts on it, they fill it in every year like that in order to get equipment through the trail for service. Come about june it will be washed/dug out to normal standards lol. I've heard though that where they've filled in under the first ledge becomes like 2-3' deep mud in the rain lol.
