Ride with caution, after the thaw, there were many slick spots.

With the rain we have received and are expected to get, will the trail be good to ride on Saturday?

The trail was in pretty good shape tonight, before the coming rains. Only one muddy spot, where it's low near the creek. And there's a tree down a couple miles in, across the trail twice but with ride-arounds developing.

Anyone clearing the Oakley Park road climb? Its loose at the bottom for sure and needs more bonding agent, but the right line (uphill side) and low tire pressure got me to the left-hand switchback 2 for 2 tonight. ....I was on a 29er BTW. Fatbike would clear it easy.

Thanks,
Tim

Cleared it last week when ground was damp. When dry earlier in the week.... Not so much. The plan is to firm the ground with Portland cement hopefully this week. Or next at latest.

Second the "keep left" advice.

Hope is not a good strategy.

Rode the Hick today, after all that rain I thought mud, man was I wrong, trail was in amazing condition, a few soft spots, but you have to look for mud, its hard to find out there.. the Hick must be built on a sponge,, Happy Trails.

Large branches down at the top of the loose climb near Oakley park rd. Right after the left hand hairpin at the top of the climb. Cleared what I could but there is still 1 large branch stuck vertically in the middle of the trail. This 2/3 of the way through section 14.

Likely heading out tomorrow afternoon after the 10-12 "rad skillz" event at Tree Farm (god, I'm 39 on Monday and saying "rad skillz"). I know Spinwheel's recuperating so if anyone knows the trail you're more than welcome to show me around as I've never been.
