The Panhandle bike path has been blocked since yesterday evening, thanks to a fallen cypress limb that went down on the path between Clayton and Ashbury streets. The path is still blocked off this morning with caution tape and orange traffic cones, until crews get to the branch.

The branch went down late in the day yesterday. Thankfully, the Panhandle wasn't completely packed, although it narrowly missed one visitor: 

Other bystanders reported that no injuries resulted from the fall.

The casualty was one of the Panhandle's iconic Monterey cypress trees. Be sure to exercise caution on the Panhandle bike path until the route is cleared—and, of course, caution when picnicking under the park's giant trees.
