The 2-track has all the usual puddles and the Pines has a couple of mud pits that should be fine by this afternoon if it stays dry. The rest of it is in great shape. There's still the fallen tree in the swamp bailout but with the race coming up on Saturday, it should be gone by then.

Enjoy.
Pete.

Adding on to what Pete says, I rode through the Trolly Trails and Fitness Trails today just before noon and they were in fine shape, but there is one large tree down in the Fitness Trails northbound just after the wide/gravel part ends and before reaching the dam.

Stony was excellent this afternoon. LOTS of riders getting their laps in. Most of them were passing us, but all were very cordial and friendly.
The Pines was tacky, with a couple of semi-gooey spots. Quite good overall.
There is a downed pine tree blocking the start of the Snake, but very easy to ride around.

Otherwise just the same issues out there...

It's hard not to focus on the few things that need fixing when the rest of the trail was soo good!

There is a new tree down on the rollercoaster right after the swamp bailout and before the 6/12 hour cut in. Otherwise The trail was in awesome shape last night. I wish I could same the same about my legs, I'm in pain today. A lot of fast riders out there last night.

We plan to be rid of the two fallen trees by Friday afternoon...Just keep an eye out for them until then.
The 2-track was extremely wet today.
Snakes and rollercoaster were fine,
I skipped the Pines to avoid damaging that trail.

Enjoy,
Pete.

FYI, it will be wet out there today. We had 3 series of downpours last night for a total of 1.5" of rain.

All singletrack except the Pines and Swamp cut out is perfectly dry. The two track is another story.

Race route is perfectly marked. Nice job.

What he said. We stayed on the higher trails and everything was amazingly dry. The trail maintenance crew has done great work out there.

Not too bad out there from what little I saw while helping to clear the two reported fallen trees.
Lots of water on the 2-track, but what the heck....It's not snow!

Enjoy,
Pete.

Near perfect out there this morning. Just the usual water found on some of the 2-track.
Enjoy.

In addition to having puddles the likes of which I have never seen, the double track has been graded in the last day or so and is very loose. It makes the climbs pretty tough.

That's sure going to do great things with heavy / sudden rain. :\

No kidding, why would they grade it during a time of the year with some of the most likely high down pour rates. Seems like a pretty [redacted] error on the parks side...
