Cleared out the end of Loop 4. A good group of blown-down dead ash trees. Noticed a widowmaker... "heads up"

Anyone know of any other spots that need clearing?? Hiked Loop 1 last weekend, saw the fatbike tracks. It was all clear then.

The trail is good to ride. Last night I rode Loop 1, 3, and 4 to the connector. There are some branches and a couple trees laying on the ground, but everything is rideable. It's still in great shape from last year's trimming and mowing. John

I haven't ridden it in the past week, but I gotta believe that Everything would be fine except for the section of loop 4 on the east side of childs lake rd. Maybe some one else will chime in, but, I'd say go, but avoid that small section of l4.

I rode Loop 2 which was dry and tried to access the small section of 4 east of Childs Lake on Sunday and was impassable because of mud and standing water. Other than that area the trail is in good shape!

The trail is in great shape and fast.. other then the loop 4 section east of childs lake rd. Bypass that section, by riding down Childs Lake rd. ( Turn Left onto Childs Lake Rd )

I think the park took care of it. Rode last night and it was all clear.

Trail should be in good shape overall.

Trails in great shape!

The normal muddy spots are all dry but supper bumpy from the Horses(they don't damage trails you know).

Check yourself for ticks! I found one on my ankle after the ride.

Rode all loops this morning. We've never seen the trails in such good shape. Not much horse damage and the sand was manageable. Best ride ever.
