Rode it 9/5 5pm. Got some rain. No dust. No mud. Great traction. Best it's been in a while. Beat my recent lap time by 2 minutes. :D

Rode it this morning and it was in great shape. The rain certainly helped out. Keep your head up for the downed tree, it comes up quick and if it's near dusk it could hard be hard to see and someone could get hurt. Too much tree to move by hand.

The downed tree has now been cleared by some anonymous person.

The trail has few mud spots in the usual places, but it is fast right now.

Rode the trail about an hour ago.
Its in real good shape with only a few mud spots in low areas.
A couple trees down. One ridable, one not.
They are not on dh's or corners.

Trail is in great shape, with no standing water. A few soft spots and a little more sand in the normal sandy areas. Two trees are down, one on the return from the dam in the new section. You may be able to ride it, but you may lose a tooth on your big ring. There is another tree not blocking the trail yet, but the next big wind and it will be. It is about a 100 feet after the first one. The other one blocking is in the middle of the last rocky rooty climb before the end.

Rode the trail on Thursday ( 9/18 ) and its in good shape. There are two trees down across the trail, and they are to big to move by hand.

Rode Monday, 9/22. Trail was fast, fast, fast. I was slow, slow, slow. :evil:

There were no observable obstacles.

Rode it early this morning and it is in great shape. Thanks to the person(s) that cleared the tree at the five mile mark.

Rode today. Trail is in great shape. The tree down near the Beck Road trail head has been turned into a small log pile.

Trail is in great condition....rode Friday 9/26 around 3:30pm and saw at least 10 deer, I almost made contact with one about 1/4 mile from the end as it bolted in the direction I was going and it finally changed course before impact.

I haven't rode Maybury for a little over a month so the new log pile at approximately mile marker 2.8 was quite a shocker as this is/was the fastest section of the trail for me. I think I was going wide open when I finally realized holy crap "thats new!!!" and clamped the rear brake for a good 30 feet before hitting it. I love surprises! Just as I was shaving my lap times down that really changes your pace through that section. Thanks to all who maintain this trail!

was the log pile at 2.8 Miles from the normal trail head ? or near Beck Road as posted above ???

FYI the log pile was probably just some ones version of a quick fix. We'll et out there and check it out this week.

Yes.....to both that is......the new log pile was close to Beck Road (furthest point from main trailhead) approximately 2.8 miles from the Main trailhead. The new logpile is right after the long rolling down hill section that has a right hand u -turn and then starts heading back towards the trailhead. I did the right hand u-turn and started hammering knowing it starts going back up hill when the log pile jumped out and I did a rear brake check.

I was not being a smart@$$ at all when I said thanks to all who maintain the trail. I meant it as I live very close by and appreciate all who work to maintain this gem!

Keep the logpile there. and put in a ride around. It's good to make the trail more challenging. 2cents.

Not against log piles and other obstacles but that ash tree tipped over in a bad place IMO. Thanks to whoever piles a few extra logs in front of it it make it manageable under hard braking.
