The Farm was surprisingly in good shape yesterday morning. Limey's & expert were tacky, but very few puddles or standing water. There is a large tree down in Limey's and another large tree down just before you cross the bridge heading out from the 754 to the main trail area. This one is kinda on a blind curve so be aware. Both trees will require a chainsaw. The rest of the trail was tacky & fast with the exception of the spiderman loop. This area had the most puddles and didnt withstand the rain very well.

Are these loop names written on any maps?

Yes. All park trail maps and even the one at the trailhead should have them listed...here:

Rode the farm this morning. Big down tree half way in Limeys defiantly needs a chainsaw. Another tree near the end of 754. Otherwise good to go.

Rode the Tree Farm last night and it was BY FAR in the BEST shape I've ever ridden it in. Hooking up on the corners was insane, climbs weren't loose or dusty, all features rideable.. Stoked!!!

Side note, it was the busiest on the trail that i've seen it so far this year too :) Passed 13 people not including a couple riding big handlebar'd beach cruisers that I could smell the dudes cologne a solid 1/4 mile before I saw them :lol:

Love this trail even more after every time I ride it, so the builders have my utmost thanks and respect 8)

I was riding yesterday and the trail was very good considering the rain. A few puddles here and there but they could be avoided.

Then at mile 8.5 or so, the unpredicted rain came in and down poured for 20-30 minutes so I don't know if there was any issues behind me.

We had a group ride scheduled there last night. The weather man really dropped the ball on this one. 2 long time riders had not ridden it. If it's dry enough now we might head over.
It's not your strength or skill. It's your level of commitment.
