Maybe much later this afternoon, we had a lot of rain the past few days. Sunday afternoon might be a better choice. I am hoping to run out there later this afternoon for a hike to check it out.

I walked the hiking trail this morning around 9 and it was in good shape. Mostly dry and in the few places where it seemed wet, it was only damp and a little tacky.

I saw a guy gearing up to head out when I left the trailhead.

I would think it is good to ride.

There is a tree down on lost loop just past the spot where found loop meets back up to lost, not far from the sign that directs you at the split of lost and found if you were to follow lost loop. It is big enough that it could not be moved without a saw but should be a quick removal with hand saw or chain saw.

Trail was in fantastic shape this weekend.

This tree has been removed, thanks for the post.

So Jay, what's the scoop on the new trail work being done? Or is it too early to spill? I saw your truck out there last week so I figure it was a chapter effort. I hiked all that was there yesterday. Looks like it came about in pretty fast order. Surprised to see so much work done out there without a call for volunteer help. To me it appears to be an easier/warmup loop that gives the campgrounds better accessibility to the trailhead location. Nice work! Can't wait to give it a spin.

Vette-ss,
That is exactly what it is. It is geared toward a beginner trail to make the trail network a bit more accessible to those not experienced in trail riding. A lot of the trail was done with "mechanical" help, hence the quick production.
