There's a private weather station just a mile or so east of the trail at http://www.wunderground.com/weatherstat ... =KMINORTH3 that reported 1.2 inches of rain overnight.

I'd wait until tomorrow. There was a lot of rain last night and I live right by the park.

I was on the trail when it began last night around 6 and finished the last mile at a snails pace. It was greasy before the rain I can imagine it will be bad for the trail to ride today. It was nice to see several people start on the trail in the rain though.

Plan on riding the trail with my family for fathers day, I was wondering how the conditions are.

Good shape, except for a few greasy spots (some in corners, so keep a lookout). Some sections need trimming as per usual.

Really wet this morning. Did some trail clearing and had to step across many puddles. Will probably need a day (maybe two) to dry out.

Maybury was in great shape last night, should be good to go for the rest of the week, barring any unexpected downpours.

Only a handful of moist spots yesterday, most had a well defined and dry wheel path through 'em. Couple of stray mud blobs on my legs after the ride is all.

And only the last mile needs some trimming. Thanks to anyone who helped out on the first 5 miles, it was awesome!

Since the TC and DNR keep an eye on this thread, may I politely ask, is there any possibility of adding another mile or two to the trail? Studying the trail map and google aerial view, I see a couple neglected/empty zones of the park adjacent to the existing MTB trail for possible expansion (that would not have to cross a horse or hiking trail, and avoid the swamps/ponds). Don't get me wrong, I love the trail as is, but getting to 8 or 9 miles long would just be so rad. Just curious if this idea conflicts with the park master plan in any way. Happy to post pics of my ideas if desired.

More miles is on the wish list for sure but there are many hurdles. Counting the horse, hiking and biking trails Maybury already has more miles of trail per square mile of park than any other state park.

I'm going to try to get out for a couple of hours next week and take care of the few (small) stumps that remain in the the trail. Besides trimming back Autmn Olice and Honeysuckle and a couple of low leaners, things are reasonably dialed?

Almost didn't ride thinking it would be muddy, but glad I changed my mind. :) Only standing water was to the right of the rock pile and avoidable if you go over the rocks. Should have known, but I've pinch flatted on that pile a couple times and didn't check my pressure yesterday.
