We got about 1/2 to 3/4 inch of rain this moring and earlier today. Trail was dry and fast Thursday evening when I rode. Could be a bit damp Saturday, but the soil drains quickly. Should be fine. We'll be working out on the trail Saturday between 10-2 or so - keep an eye out for us.
I have some trail pics of Yankee from a ride I attended back on 3-Apr. That day was rather temporate for early April (mid-50's), and it was kinda windy too. The trail was in great shape. Mainly dry and no muddy areas to speak of.
The ride was mainly a part of a group ride for some IL mtb'ers, but I got to meet a few MI & MMBA riders there too. It was my first time to ride Yankee and the impression it left me was a very good one. Similar in style and length at Poto, though not as long, nor as many long-ish climbs. But all the same a very fun, fun trail. I look forward to another ride out there again.
Here are some of the trails shots (remember these are from 3-Apr).
5-26: The recent heavy rains have finally stopped and the trail is pretty dry, except for a few spots. Use caution, as the heavy rains did take their toll on a couple of the fall line hills making some serious ruts to watch out for.
Rode out there last night (sept. 1st).
It's getting sandy in a few sections. A few of the climbs and descents are getting rocky and rutted. Not bad for those full suspension folk. Still a riot out there though! Enjoy.
