I may head out today after work if it stays dry today. If I go I will try to remember to post trail conditions.

I rode the trails on the north end yesterday. I only encountered one muddy spot; the trail is in much better shape than I am. I didn't make it south of Riverbend, so I can't speak to that half of the park.

Any idea who needed an ambulance ride off the trail last night?
It's not your strength or skill. It's your level of commitment.

Shaun told me it was a 47-year old guy, but not the name. Something to do with falling on one of the steep downhills near Annie's Playhouse, apparently he has a concussion. If that's his car outside the gate at the Riverbend entrance (silver/gray Vibe), it's covered in wasps. An empty granola bar wrapper is on the ground by the driver's door, but I doubt that's why there are so many. They are swarming over the hood, roof, and trunk. He better take some kill spray out there, because when he climbs in the driver's door I can see a dozen following him in :twisted:

Somebody left a chainring gouge in the third cross-board on the entry to the Dragon's Throat - I suspect the cable saved him from possibly going into the river. The mark indicates the front tire went off the left side. If anybody knows what happened, I'd love to hear how the safety measures performed.
