I'll answer my own question. "Green" trail is completely fine. There are only about two really large puddles that cover the full trail. Otherwise, the trail is good to go. Lots of sand, but that's nothing new for Island Lake.

There is a small tree down somewhere on Yellow, but is jumpable. Maybe a new trail feature.

It's definitely small enough to stay as a feature. I liked it. :)

I rode this morning blue was clear, a little water, yellow had 3 trees down, all small enough to ride/hop over, first one around the one mile marker, second one around the 2 mile marker, it looked like a beaver ate through the middle of it, so its easy to ride over, the third one was about 1/2 mile from the end.. both trails were sandy, but its that time of year.

How well does island handle water? Was hoping to get out early sunday. But with rain scheduled for saturday not sure if that will put a stop to the ride.

My suggestion would be to check the actual rainfall history report online in the morning before you head out.

Island lake has a very diverse soil base and has some sections that do not handle water very well. Brighton- Murray lake dries out about 2 or 3 days before Island Lake. Ride Murray Lake if there is any concern about wet/mud trail conditions at Island Lake!

Both ILRA and BRA will be fine Sunday morning. It hardly rains out here today.
