The Snake, Roller Coaster, Back 9 & Pines were all clear yesterday evening, except for the tree across the rock garden bypass.

There was a bit of erosion and sand, but overall the trails were in real good shape. Everyone who pitches in out there has done excellent work!

How fast does this trail dry out after a rain? Will it be rideable late this afternoon or is that too soon after yesterdays rain?

Go ride it and give me a report. (I'm wondering if the wind has toppled any trees)
You will get a little muddy but I wouldn't worry about the trail itself.

The trails with the most elevation changes (Snake, Roller Coaster, Back 9) dry the quickest. The Pines will hold moister a bit longer, and the perimeter two-track seems to have wet spots year-round.

It hasn't rained since sun-up, but it hasn't been real sunny either. I'd say if you stay on the 'high road' you should have a great afternoon of riding.


Edit: Never mind. It's raining now... :cry:

The Snake, Roller Coaster, Back 9 & Pines were all clear this evening, except for the tree across the rock garden bypass.

There was a bit of erosion & sand. The Pines had 2-3 greasy spots and 1-2 puddles. A couple slithery places on the 'Coaster & Back 9.

Mother nature (and a little bug from China) dropped it and now it's a new trail feature option.
Do you know where it's located?

It's beautiful out there....Get out there and find it!

Enjoy,
Pete.

Just finished riding at Stony. The Roller Coaster, Snake, and Back Nine are fine, but The Pines is on the edge of too wet and should be avoided for a day or so.

I removed a fallen tree hanging at head height just after the log pile in the Back Nine and moved some newly toppled things that were slightly blocking the trail in other parts. All is clear now.

On Sunday it was first time I had ridden Stony in three months. Wanted to ride it and take pictures of all the color. Trails were in great shape and most color was in first half of Roller Coaster. Lots of leaves down so have to be a bit careful through there. Second half of RC is totally different with not many leaves on trail.
The Pines was in great shape also and also lots of color.
