Drains/dries great - all loops - quicker than Maybury.

As already mentioned, Brighton is a good trail to drain and dry pretty quickly.

In fact, I usually schedule brighton rides right after it rains, I think that's when the trail is best. All three loops seems to handle the rain about equally as well, with appleton having the most soft spots, likely due to being new and drainage hasn't "worn in" yet.

Just got done with a lap of Murray Lake, a few slick spots by the bridges, but overall great conditions. Should be some good rides in the near future with the warm weather.

This trail kicks my ass though, need to stop hanging out at island lake so often.

Rode Torn Shirt yesterday just after the quick showers. The trail was the best I have ever seen.

To the builders, I cannot express just how I impressed I am with all of the work that's been done on the trail. WOW WOW WOW. Those amazing wave berms, YES!! That's exactly what we need in SEMI singletrack!!!!!!

If you carry speed correctly, the trail is ridiculous levels of fun!! But when you don't you're going to pay for your mistake haha. Just how I like them!

Excellent job as always!!!!

Rider beware - tree down in first mile of Murray Lake in the world famous "flow" section - it's before you reach the "Dip" sign. The tree is around one of those super fun smooth corners so it comes up on you quick. I predict this thing will own someone this weekend.

It's only about 10"-14" diameter but it's long and wedged between other trees so I was not able to pivot it out of the way.

Wow BR TC's are killing it.
This is my co-favorite trail system (with Highland).
Can ride here for almost 2 hours without lapping.
Three campgrounds and lakes to boot.
