We will be updating the status of the trail on the new "Trail Conditions" page on our website athttp://www.wmmba.org/trail-conditions/ and also here on our Facebook page. We will open the trail as soon as conditions permit.

I will take a look today and post up. I suspect there will be tree damage like Merrell received so we might have to hold an emergency trail night.

Luton Park will open Thursday 4/17! Thanks to the volunteers from the Merrell trail night for making the trip over here to remove all the storm damage. The trails are dry and in great shape! Thanks for everyone's patience this season. Heads up, a temporary reroute on the Green Loop near 10 Mile due to the parking lot construction.

Attention all trail users. This Saturday April 26th there is a trail running race called Hurt the Dirt at Luton Park, staging at the Kies parking lot and utilizing the trail network from 8am-2:30pm. The trail will be closed to all other users while the event is happening. Please take advantage of great trail conditions at Merrell, the Ski Area or Cannonsburg State Game Area instead. Please spread the word to your non-Facebook friends!

Glad to see they're allowing races out there! Hopefully we'll get a mountain bike time trial or something in the near future.
