Anyone out last night or today? How are the conditions after the rain Tuesday?

I rode attended the Salsa demo. There were slightly more than the normal low mud spots on the trails near the Silver Lake trail head. The sand was damp. It never rained while I was there & I did not see evidence of rain in the lot/roads. A few dark clouds spit on us once. I would think with good heat, wind and sun, the trail should be good to go today. That said, I didn't make it around the full loop. Gosling might be iffy. I did notice the second ticket booth climb starting to trench, much like the après woodsman's climb.

Gosling/N.loop was a little greasy with a couple of the usual small mud hole's . Deer flies are looking for blood . Don't stop .

Prior to last night's gully washer, a new tree down at GPS coordinate 42.443811, -83.997875.
South Poto, section between Doyle and Kelly. Easy to walk around. Not a big job, but will take a chainsaw and ivy block.
Thanks!

Dead fall is out. Late AM early PM the trail conditions would be better for a ride.

Any word on condition today? The Royal Oak area (where I'm at) got hit with decent rain yesterday but not sure about if the trail is rideable today or not.

We got about 1.25" of rain, probably pretty wet this morning.
The trail is the thing, not the end of the trail. Travel too fast and you miss all you are traveling for.

There is a tree down shortly before the sandpits at the short cut split. Will need a chain saw.
