Bummer I figured was an ice rink based on other comments so heading out for pavement ride instead.

I rode with a 75 year old guy and we both stayed upright the entire ride!

Too soft with the recent thaw and rain. The trail will freeze back up again over the next few days. Even skinnies will enjoy it then!

Any info on a trail condition? Seems like temps are dropping and there was some snow.

island lake was pretty good riding today. Ground has refrozen with .5 of snow on top with a few bare spots. Some pizza cutters do to the usual idiots. Rode fat bike so they weren't too deadly.

i ran a few sections of blue on sunday. it's really a mixed bag. sections that are exposed to the sun & wind are bone dry. however, sections in the woods, northern facing, low areas, etc... are very muddy. still a few small areas with ice covering the trail.

Island Lake Blue and Yellow was already getting a solid groove by 6pm last night thanks to all the new fat bike traffic. It'll be in great shape for a few days.

@fsr1 - There is a large tree down on Yellow at the 1Mile marker post. Please sick the DNR on it and thank them for their great work.
