Yet another great day ridding Island lake trails. Perfect shape. 68 degrees and rain in the forecast for next couple days and didn't see one other rider on trails. Amazing. I was there early afternoon so maybe more showed up later. Hope so because these kind of days left this time of year are limited.

Any status reports on Island Lake today? I'll be on that side of town later and would love to be able to get a lap (or 2) in today if it's not excessively muddy.

I went out Saturday with some friends in the rain...While I normally wouldn't do so that place was very sandy and I didn't see us hurting the trail.

At any rate - there were a few mud puddles & standing water that have been there for over a week. Those are easily avoidable and you can see them coming - so you should be OK. Watch the wood (bridges & roots) and the leaves, they will pose more problems that mud.

TRAIL CAPTAINS: There is one tree down on blue - just after the road crossing that has a little bridge before you exit by placeway.

Went out this afternoon. A few greasy spots in the normal areas. No standing water. Trail was good. Leaves and pine needles are not much of a problem.

Trail was Great today. Only a few muddy spots but hardly worth mentioning. Fall color was at PEAK today. Beautiful.

What's up with all the new fence and pushing brush and trees to block the entrance on silver lake road between rushton and McCabe? Love riding in that way from the house.

Not sure. I'll inquire.

How's the trail, other than blocking your entrance?

Trail is fantastic as of last night... no obstructions. Went out for a night lap and was surprised at the number of ppl. on the trail.
