The trails never really close, they are posted "closed" when muddy or wet but not gated. Just use some common sense before heading out. We recommend waiting 24 hours to ride after a rain storm. Merrell, Upper Mac and the Game Area are prone to be wet even after a rainfall of 1" due to some high clay content areas. Luton seems to handle 1.5" ok. You can ride the CBurg Ski Area or Yankee in the rain! The sandy soil at these locations make it the perfect choice when in doubt. A little trial and error goes a long ways. If you start riding a trail and you are leaving deep tracks in the trail behind you it is a good idea to turn around and head elsewhere.
