Rode this AM before the trail thawed. It's still 80% snow-covered, but very rideable. That 20% gave me Spring fever big time, especially the beginning of the 3rd section. Dry and sweet!

Watch the creek crossing. I went over the ice, but it was buckling and probably won't be frozen over much longer.

I might check it out tonight to see what the warm conditions are like. If it looks muddy, I'll stick to the roads.

Trail is good to go today. About 3/4" of snow, which the skiers are trying their best on.

It seems really unlikely that the trail will be OK on Saturday. My guess is it will be very muddy until we have a couple of weeks with no snow or rain and warmer temps. Right now the trail is covered in snow.

I was out there this morning, (Friday am), plenty of (mostly frozen) soft spots on the east side north of 4 mile. Will be really soft and muddy with this weekends warm temps. Most of the rest of trail was pretty good though.

Does anyone have any updates on what the game area is looking like? I'm wondering if it will be rideable this weekend.

the ground has thawed by now so it should be fine today, but use common sense after it rains.

Trail was good to go this morning only a few muddy spots that are usually there. Sandy areas toward end of last section are already getting super deep, reminded me of yankee but even worse in a few spots.
