Edit: got my east and west confused. Good thing I don't make maps for a living.


Of what I rode, 85% is in good shape. As noted above, there are a bunch of scattered atypical wet spots. And the typical wet spots are still larger than usual. I would ride this loop again, with the exception of the eastern yellow downhill. The middle downhill has a big wet section just above the 4-way, but is otherwise good. The double-track section of pink was also a mess that I should have avoided. I was surprised that the area behind the ballfields (sans the trail off Gilbride where I turned around) was in good shape. Based on what I saw, I did not bother with red or blue.

I'll let the bike pic tell the rest of the story.

Nice warm day today. Hopefully it has some positive impact by this evening

I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that the precipitation holds off for tomorrow. Every time I look at the weather it shows something a little different for tomorrow or tomorrow night, it was never a lot of rain but, now it's showing nothing.

Things are slightly improved since my report from Wednesday, but there are still some scattered extra wet areas. The worse ones I saw were at the very top of red, and the main vein on yellow right above the 4-way. Based on the condition there I would avoid the luge trail on yellow, it's likely still a mess. I didn't bother with blue.

There are 3 trees down on green, two pretty close together. One of the pair can be done with a hand saw but the other two probably need some power.

I drove by yesterday (Friday) and it was pretty awful looking from every lot I stopped at. All I saw was mud and super wet trails. Saw a few cars in the Newman’s lot but no bike racks and noticed no tire marks at any trailhead.
