Cleared the tangled mess a couple hundred yards past the hankerd road crossing last night. Is the tree referenced above on the Crooked Lake trail across Pickeral lake from the beach area ?

I'm thinking crooked lake trail past the sandy part where they do the prescribed burn adjacent to pickeral lk. (where they added the little "no bikes" signs. I can get it tonight.

OK well, if it does not rain a bunch here in Toledo overnight I am heading up early in the am. Would appreciate any heads up regarding weather conditions near the trail. Thanks!

Ugh! O.K., thanks. Just has not been working out for me to get up there this year. Sounds like it may be at least a few days before it dries out.(

Trail was dry tonight when I was out clearing the tree. We have thunderstorms rolling through right now and radar shows more on the way. They are so isolated that part of the trail could be dry and another mud. I think tomorrow morning is pretty iffy to be dry.

I don't pray, but am really, really hoping that it stays dry through Sunday so it becomes ride-able out there. Even the sandiest trails around have to be pretty murky by now.

I was caught out in that rain storm brushing the trail and I can testify that the Poto caught a *beep* load of rain. Some parts of that trail looked like a stream bed.
