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

Was going to use Stony as a back up plan for a ride with my son today but I am sure it got pounded pretty well last night. Anyone been out there yet this morning?

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 8)

Any downed trees that need more than a hand saw or pruners to clear up?
Thanks,
Pete.

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.

I rode last night around 7:45pm

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.

I'm a few miles East of the park. We got very little rain.
I suggest you go out, ride all the trails, enjoy yourself, and report back on the current conditions! :D

The trails are good. A few greasy spots in the Pines will slow one a bit.

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....

Pines and Coaster: Other than usual wet spots on pines, both are good to go. Didn't ride the back nine, but that's usually always dry.
