I rode the whole thing this morning, first time this year.... I have been letting living get in the way of life..... Morning rides at 7 are a great way to start the day.
As posted else where today, I finally saw the female Pileated woodpecker as she guided me through the hardwoods and trillium road. Very impressive.
There is a tree down across two sections of trail in the pines, that should be gone soon.
The under growth, especially in the jungle is starting to get thick, but still pleasant to ride. Get out there soon before the trails get there first trimming/sanitizing of the year.
Speaking of sanitizing, if you have some time in the next week or so and have a weed wacker, I could use some help mowing it back. PM me if you can help out and what sections you will hit.
There are still some wet spots in the hardwoods. Lake GiGi (as I have affectionately named the larger of the puddles) is residing, but still covers three trails. Actually only two, but the mud bath are still open on the north east corner of it. Rideable, but but muddy, and would best to let it sit a while. The same goes with the puddle in the gully, please let it sit a while longer. There are temporary reroutes for both puddles. Please go around them. There are a few wet spots in the north east corner of the hardwoods, solutions for repair or reroutes are in the works.
