The trail guide gives the Beck Road (winter) address and under Directions it is blank.

5/15/08 Conditions

Postby jumpstumper » May 16th, 2008, 9:20 am

I rode Maybury last night. It was definitely a bit softer out there due to all the recent rain. There were a few areas of standing water, and in general the ground was moist, (but still not muddy, yet.) Based on the weather forecast it will probably remain soft out there through the weekend. It is still OK to ride as long as we don't get long and hard periods of rain.

Yep.... with my lightweight Kendas, the corners were unpredictable. With FireXCs or something, probably ok.

I thought this was the "trail conditions" forum, where you're supposed to report trail conditions, not "exercise your scorn and sarcasm to the max" forum.

The trail guide gives the Beck Road (winter) address and under Directions it is blank.


The Beck Road Entrance is there the Maybury Park DNR Headquarters are located...hence the only place in the park with an actual address.

And if you click the "Map 1" link it will bring up a DNR Pdf park map, which shows 8 Mile, 7 Mile, and Beck Roads. The "Map" also shows the 8 Mile for the park entrance. It also is printable and shows the entire park with trails, and trail head locations...

Here is the direct link...

Faceslappers are coming out a bit, which makes blind corners.

But the trail surface is perfect.

I took the B loop today to mix it up a bit. The trail was completely blocked about 25 feet in with sticks/branches. Is this connector closed for the summer?

Ther is a small tree down a bit into the winter loop cut.
I moved some of it mid afternoon Sunday.
You can now ride over it or maybe a two person effort could clear it up entirely.
The cut is open.

2/26/08 Conditions

Postby jumpstumper » May 27th, 2008, 10:49 am

I rode on Memorial Day and the trail continues to be in great shape. There are some face slappers, but not too terrible, especially if you are familiar with the trail. I wasn't planning on riding yesterday, due to the rain in the forecast, but when the clouds cleared at about 10:30, I knew I had to go. The humidity was pretty nasty, even if the temp wasn't that high. It really sucks your energy.

This may sound like a weird question, but is there a poison ivy on the switchback climb near the beginning of the trail? I usually don't pay attention, but I was following a guy on a switchback climb (second climb that goes up and does a u-turn to the left and go up again,) and for some reason he decided to stop right in the middle of the climb to get off, (which I wasn't expecting at all) and I had to stop with my feet still clipped, tipping over to the side.

I didn't think of it at the time, but now I'm paranoid... I'm probably screwed. No rashes yet....
