Walked through all of the yellow loop today and all trees are cleared from the trail. Its dry in most places but a little muddy in the old orange loop.

Rode there yesterday. While the grassy 2-track into the park was a bog, the singletrack was surprisingly dry!

Trail is in good shape, I'm not. There were some soggy parts but most of the trail is dry. Great day for my first ride of 2016.

Good ride today. A little wet in a handful of spots, but nothing too bad.

Rode through the yellow loop tonight. The section between Y2 and Y3 is a little wet and soft. In the extreme north between Y6 and Y7 it's also very soft. Otherwise it's a decent ride, at least before the coming rain.

Most of the trail was mowed today by HikerJohn. It’s very soft in the red loop between R2 and R3 as well as between Y6 and Y7. In fact the mower got stuck in those sections so we have a little repair to do in those spots.

Orange loop in the northwest portion of the park has been reopened with the consent of the adjacent landowners. We met with them to discuss our plans and they agreed. We’ve place a sign at the junction of this yellow and orange loop. We also replaced the markers according to the previous map.

Soon the link to the map will be updated with this revised map.

The old orchard section between Y3 and Y4 has been weed whacked. I believe the whole trail now is completely open and ready to rip!
