did some recon today and found 80% of the trail to be in pretty good shape . it looks like recent traffic is starting to flatten out a lot of the pizza cutter damage. There were only two spots on yellow, near the old dump site, that were soft and muddy. i'm not sure about the parking lot connector.
unfortunately, there are some areas on orange, red and green that are still really rutted. In the flatter areas this is going to cause the tread to hold water and be soft every time it rains. These areas will potentially become mud bogs. On inclines/declines it is going to cause water to channel down the tread instead of running over and off the tread. The result we be increased errosion in those areas. There will be plenty of maintenance work to do later in the spring. Hopefully all the morons that rode and caused the damage will come out and help fix what they broke.
if it stays warmish and doesn't rain, it's good to ride/hike/run. (just be mindfull of the spots on yellow) if we get rain it will prolly take two or three days of dry before it's good to go. if we get back into freeze thaw cycles that's a whole different thing.
why did they say I needed this degree?
