So far I have noticed a few kids on separate occasions this year, driving too quick around the stony loop. Horrible place to be wreckless. Very sad news, I hope they can keep this from haopening again. Deepest sympathy to all the families involved in this accident.

Stony is the place where I've received the most harassment while riding as well. It's usually people coming up along side of me and either slamming their open palm against the side of the door, honking, or screaming out the window when right next to me. I avoid riding the road and will instead take the path (much more slowly) when it's a likely-busy time.

Per the press conference: 2008 Jaguar, 5 people, 17-18 years old. Single vehicle accident, no one else involved. 4 people ejected, 2 at hospital, 3 dead. Ended up in Stony Creek River after hitting the guardrail near the dam. No cyclists or pedestrians involved.

I'm out on that path 4 or more times a week. Scary!

What a terrible tragedy. I can't imagine the pain their families are dealing with now. Just as they were about to graduate high school most likely too. Truly horrible.

Too wet to be fun. Not trail damaging, but lots of greasy spots and puddles. Needs a day or so of no rain and good wind.

^ What he said.
Also, thank you to whomever fixed the two signs at the rock garden area of the Pines.

The trail was in pretty good shape tonight. A great night to ride. Few puddles in the normal spots on the two track. The pines were in good shape with a few small puddles (maybe 2 or 3). Snake, Roller Coaster and Bonus loop were all in great shape with a few soft spots but no standing water.

Trails were in good shape tonight. The light rain firmed the trail it seems.

Trails fine today but very humid and sun strong. Take precautions.

Noticed this when out watching the race this morning. The leaves definitely aren't fully in yet. :\

Trail was in great shape tonight. Very fast and dry. There was minimal water on the two track between the parking lot and the pines. Get out and ride before the next round of rain hits us.

My first ride at Stony this year. Everything was in great shape and enjoyed this beautiful day riding there.
