Rode both trails today...a little mud but not too bad. The biggest problem was the amount of fallen trees and limbs. Be careful

Trail guide shows the trail is open. Is this true, I can't believe it being ridable so soon. Does anyone know the condition of the trail?

Check with Jack's Bike Shop in Monroe - however, I doubt its even close to being rideable at the moment.

The trail is typically a muddy swampy mess until the end of May at best. I highly doubt that it's ridable.

It'll probably be June before you can get out there.

Muddy!

I rode the 2 mile loop through the woods today. At first it didn't look like it was going to be bad, but that quickly changed. I'd give it a couple of weeks to dry out. It was fun anyway.

Tried to ride this trail on 5/24/08...The first .25 mile was dry...but then it quickly turned into a muddy swamp and a large fallen tree. Had to turn around and go home.

Anyone ridden this recently? I will be in the area next friday the 27th of June and was going to swing by if it is rideable.

I hear it can be muddy, give Jacks bikes a call in Monroe they will know.

I was just there a couple days ago and was about to post up on the trail conditions...

Front loop:
Mostly dry. The mud that is there is the clay/grease-like mud. First 0.4 miles has lots of face slappers, and a couple small trees down that you have to carry your bike over so be careful. The trail has lots of overgrowth, but is still rideable.

Back loop:
Beware, at about 0.6 miles there is a tree down with lots of thick branches. It covers up so much of the trail that I lost sight of where the trail continues. I had to walk a bit to find the continuation. I think there was 1 or 2 small fallen trees back here that you had to carry your bike over too.

I need to make some time to head down there more and help clear some trail. Oh, and bring plenty of big spray. They are out in force now!

I'm willing to help clear the trail, I'm dying to get my wife and son out there.

I rode the 1.8 section today, and it is clear and a nice ride, alot of corners to practice on (I'm just getting into the mountain bike madness)
It will get muddyin the rain though some low spots.

also if your from Monroe and know where hellenburg (sp?) park is (I think it is on front street going towards the port of monroe past the east end, you can see it from the clamdigger) the island has a nice little path on it with a few jumps dug in, just don't ride into the river at the end of the island.
