Anyone have any info for today? Seems like the rain was spotty. Not sure how much there was last night.

Not much rain yesterday or last night...probably fine to ride.

Tons of rain here in Howell last night and this morning. I'm thinking the trail will be a muddy mess.

Any updates? Would like to get out tonight, but it's rained quite a bit this week.

Last night at 4:30pm I turned back after 50 meters and did dirt roads instead. It was raining pretty hard there at 8pm as I was leaving the parking lot so I suppose it got worse. Even the start was greasy at 4:30 but since I turned back I can't speak to the whole trail, with the start being greasy my guess is the trail was a mess. :?:

I went ahead today. There were some greasy spots but I thought it was ok for fatbikes. I would not have wanted to go on my 29er. To be totally dry is probably two days out.

Great conditions for a ride today! Some grease but nothing bad. Didn't see any bikers out there...

NOAA stated there were a few trees down east of Hankerd & N Territorial. Specifically, Madden & N. Territorial and Colby & Madden. So I would expect a few are down across the trail, at least in the southern end of Pinckney Rec Area.

Sand migration is nearly complete, summer conditions are upon us. A beautiful night at the Poto last night was.
Boy Scout (aka Sun Tan) is a bit more challenging these days.

The tree that was down on the shortcut has been removed.

The old Poto took some abuse from the recent rains. Be aware that things may have changed a bit from your last ride.
