There's some pavement out there that's clear and dry... ;)

If you've got cabin fever, sure, come out. Grab a rake and shovel, attend one of the chapter trail days. You can even fix the mess left by those that ride too early.

I did some recon yesterday and did a little trail cleaning moving deadfall on the trail.

The section of that small loop at 12.5 mile road is clear. (the trail sign to the 12.5 mile road exit)

However there were majority of spots that were muddy (with pizza cutters) and still snow covered.

I saw one guy at the trailhead and I told him maybe he should not be riding the trail, and he said it is in "great shape". To some if you can ride your bike on it without walking the trail is in "great shape" :roll: Whatever...

Just got back from walking some of the trail. I was totally surprised at how rideable the part I walked was. I walked Limeys,754, most of Loki's and most of Frogs pass. There are existing pizza cutters, but there was no mud until I approached the main walking trail back near 12 1/2 mile. There is still snow and ice on the shaded areas there. I'll still stay away but it's nice to know that the trail isn't a complete mess. After the weekend warriors tomorrow? We'll see.

Got a report that there were several trees down and lots of small deadfall. Will try to clear it over the next couple days.
