Thinking about a rip at Highland on Saturday afternoon and I was wondering what people think the trail conditions might be considering the forecasted weather ??

A to B cutoff was perfect last night, until we had to cut our ride short as the heavens opened up. We got a LOT of rain (I was driving 35 on m-59 on the way home :shock: )

I find Highland to handle the rains pretty well, especially once we've gotten past the spring freeze/thaw. Saturday afternoon might be a bit optimistic, but I think it should be ok if we don't get a ton of rain saturday morning.

Big tree down at 8.13 mile mark on B loop. Had to carry bike through an opening in the branches. Be careful as it's right beyond a blind turn.

^^^Technically its after the 10.5 mile marker, for those of you that Strava it's at the end of Witch's Vision, the downhill after the blind corner, I almost went OTB, seems like I was on the front wheel for 5 sec's. :o

It's in a very fast section, will try to clear sometime tomorrow, the rest of the trail is clear, just the usual wet sections.

Heads up… There is a trail run this Saturday May 21, which starts at 8:00 am.
I would avoid the trail until later in the day…

It's now in pieces. Seemed to get progressively more broken up as today progresses. I think people were hitting it.
