Trails are wet. The usual mud spots have standing water.

My buddy came up to do some riding today. It's a rarity so couldn't pass up. Spent a lot of time walking around puddles.

P.S. Serfas Drifter city tires SUCK on wet trails. I bit it three times. Twice on wet roots and once on wet rocks. I'm gonna be sore tomorrow.

Those are not designed for trails, Serfas made those for using a MTB on pavement. It's not so much the tread pattern, but the high durometer of the rubber made to withstand the abuse pavement will give them. If you need a multipurpose tire, there's some better choices out there.

I knew they were an asphalt tire, I just thought if I was slow and careful I'd be safe. I was wrong.

I rode it last night, it was what I would consider dry, however, the Coaster had a lot more mud.

Rode stony this afternoon. Avoided the pines, the two track and roller coaster had greasy/muddy spots. There is a big tree down on the coaster just before the first big hill that we re-routed a number of years ago, uphill left hander, just after the really rocky section.
