Rode this morning while temps were still below freezing and the ground was frozen.

Trail was in decent shape, but there were sections with frozen pizza cutters that were annoying.

Trails were hard and frozen this afternoon, which was almost nice, if it wasn't for the damage caused by jackasses who like riding in mud. I only rode the first half, but most of this had some of the worst frozen-in pizza cutters I've seen in a long time. Big, big thanks to the asshats responsible for this. These'll likely be here until spring. :\

I'm guessing those people don't read these boards... or else if they do then they're intentionally ignoring the polite requests to NOT destroy the trails. Maybe if we post some really polite signs at the Lake George entrance and inside the park entrance? If it's any consolation I rode Hickory Glen today and it's in perfect shape.

You mean like the Ride Dirt Trails, Not Mud Trails sign that's at both the Lake George Entrance and start of the single track off of the pavement?

I think some people just don't care. These were found on better quality bikes... Small Block Eight and Conti X-Kings, if I remember right.
