I walked the West Loop (no tech loop or lakeshore loop) this morning on my way home from work. There's good and bad to report...
THE GOOD-The temp was 22' when I started. The ground was firm and the trail would have been rideable in all but a very few spots. The trail is clear of fallen trees and I cleared away ALOT of small to medium sized new fallen branches. I think I will try to ride the trail tomorrow morning at the same time (7:30 AM). If you get there later in the day it may start to soften up.
THE BAD-Some Jackhole rode the trail on a dirt bike on what must have been a pretty warm day. It did considerable damage to several of the more sensitive parts of the trail, and there are deep, wide frozen ruts all over the place. It was also very apparent that this person looked to have the most fun in the muddiest parts of the trail.
Also, for the upcoming trail day...There are no trail maps or MMBA membership applications at the trail head sign.
