First ride here today. Nice trail. It is in great shape as are the other local trails. Not to mention for this time of year they are all in beautiful shape. I will be back to this one soon.

Anybody know if/when the restrooms are closed for the season? I'm heading out there soon from work and wasn't sure if I could change clothes there.

Tree down in the meadow area of the 754 loop - watch for it.

We'll get to it shortly.

Tree cleared.

After the inch of rain we received yesterday and overnight, the trail is soft with lots of standing water. Please avoid for another day or so.

Haven't been out there for a couple days, but there was a report that the farm was still "SUPER MUDDY"...

That report would be 100% correct. Probably should be avoided.

Spring rules: ride in morning while still frozen. Maybe?

Sure. If the ground is frozen and you aren't leaving tire tracks, it's fine for riding.

The rest of this week's going to be pretty bad - 90% chance of rain tomorrow and several days without a hard freeze at night. Ya gotta play this hour-by-hour, and grab opportunities when you can.
