+1 on this, no place to ride at Waterloo, my parents live right there and this is crap

Thought I'd try mountain biking for the 1st time in 15 years. I went here cause it is the closest to my house, and because I knew I'd be largely alone. Many large downed trees. I parked where the trail crosses on Maute rd. Signage doesn't even indicate bikes are allowed. All horse tracks. Not even any footprints let alone tire tracks. Signage all shot up. Difficult ride for 1st time back. Go if you are a masochist.

Trail is in good shape, with about 4 to 6 inches of snow. What a great day to tool around on the Fat Bikes. :mrgreen:

I rode saturday while we were getting snow--it's a great trail in great shape. Grooming will make it pretty easy to get around. I like that trail a lot.

Anyone know if it's been groomed since the big snow?

Trail was pretty good today for my lunch ride, grooming is setting in and with the right PSI trail felt good to go.

Trail was RAD on saturday. I was probably the third/fourth rider on the trail at about 9:30a, and the parking lot was full by the time I left. Lots of traffic was really helping to bed in the groom. Best snow ride in the area IMHO.
