Probably just some branches to trim, I didn't see anything heavy there.

If Stony received the same amount of rain as Addison it should be fine. Addison was greasy in some spots this morning but drying quickly. Both Addison and parts of Stony (the Snake, Roller Coaster, & Back 9) shed water very well, so I bet any time after noon Stony will be in very good shape.
Rode Stony late morning. The pines had a few long puddles and a few small puddles, and appeared to be drying out. The roller coaster and snake were good, but the heavy rain has done some minor damage to the trail. The two track was a mess of course
It is what it is......[*_*].......
I rode the 6/12 Hour route tonight and didn't encounter anything down or even in the way. It looks like the park did a bunch of brush trimming along the two track, and as a result there's a lot of little debris on those trails. Only a couple wet spots on the two track, nothing that couldn't be rolled slowly.
Lots of wet spots on the two-track and in the Pines. Snakes, Roller Coaster, Back Nine were okay, but there were a few muddy spots.
The last turn on the snakes coming up Mt Sheldon is starting to show signs of erosion. Much of the armoring (rocks and concrete) is becoming exposed with surrounding fill getting washed away. Also, the grassy two track that winds its way by the old tennis court and up to the start of the snakes seems to be getting more eroded each week.
I did one quick loop then hit the gravel roads for the rest of my ride.
I think the frequent, heavy rains are taking a toll on many trails this year.
This morning was a great ride. Pines had a couple soft spots here and there, nothing out of the ordinary. Coaster and back nine were perfect. Outside loop had the usual wet spots. All in all, fast and fun, however, it's raining.....again....
