It was a bit dusty yesterday, so a bit of rain would likely do it some good. It doesn't look like Stony got anything appreciable. I'd chance it. :)

Trails were/are in great shape (minus the enduring swamp two track portion in the northwest). The pines were nice and damp but not muddy and the rest of the trails you could barely tell it rained at all.

Rode last night and the trails were great. The outside two track still has water.

Love the rock garden upgrade! Great job to all who worked on it.

Mid summer conditions today. The wet 2-track back near Sheldon road is about 95% dry now.

Just about time to start trimming the trail's face slappers.

I called the park office this afternoon about 5:30pm to see if they got hit with any rain. The lady who answered said that it rained for about 20 minutes but she didn't say how much. I really wanted to try out the new Maxxis Ikon (rear) and Ardent Race (front) tires that just arrived in the mail yesterday so I decided to make the drive up to Stoney Creek and check it out. The trail was in excellent shape. It didn't even look like it rained at all. There was a very small amount of water on the two track in the usual spots but it was about 95% dry. Really loved the new tires. The trails are good to go.

I'm planning to start trimming the trail Tuesday after work.
If anybody is interested in helping, post up here.
My plan is to park in lot "F" around 5:00pm and walk in from there.
