The trail is GLORIOUS. some small derailleur grabbers, but those will get blown off by the first dozen people that ride tomorrow morning.

Glorious meaning firm and dry? Seems hard to believe based on the pics posted only a couple of days ago. I am dying to hit the trail but dont want to f it up pr trash my drive-train.

Just got in from my "pre work ride". Trail is in good shape, there are a few areas that have mud, but they are few and far between. Trail looked more wet than it was as i wasn't leaving much of a print except where I tried to smooth out a few pizza cutters. Its amazing what a few 60 degree days and temps above freezing at night can do! Trail wintered pretty well, thanks to all those who did not ride the past few weeks, I think you'll all see that there are not many areas that are in rough shape out there. So come on out, its open and ready to played on. Also unless you peddle in from town, please park at 8-mile as the stables are open.

Rode a double again this morning - it was once again GLORIOUS as in firm, 95% dry, tacky (in a good way), no pizza cuttering, rideable in every possible way, just watch our for random broken twigs and branches which could get caught in your bike.

There was only one muddy spot, about 1' wide by 3' long. The rest was amazingly unbelievably ride-able given what we are coming out of. Not sure what was done to get the trail in this condition, but i suspect it involved a lot of extension cords and hair dryers.

What Hala said. But I just got off the trail at 6pm and there's no mud now, just maybe three grease spots.

I did two laps today and yes, with a capital *beep* YES the trail is in good shape. Of course now that I got my appetite whetted tomorrow it's supposed to rain :(

Trail was in great shape tonight before dusk. I am not. Lap time up about 6 mins over normal. Good to be back.

Thinking about heading out from the east side. How much rain did you guys get over there?

So far the weather has threatened but failed to score. All positive trail reviews still apply.

Trail was great this evening (got a ride in before the weather turned).

A couple trees down. One about .3 miles in, another a bit before the first road crossing. And some scary low hanging snags here and there...
