Good shape

I rode almost all the trails yesterday (Monday June 25). Everything had been mowed and was nicely dried out.

I rode all the northern trails today (between markers 1 and 8 ) and other than a few large trees down between markers 3 and 4, all was good.

Ride recap here
If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem; now get off my lawn!

Rode there Saturday and the trail was in great shape . They had a half marathon and it helped the trail with all the people running on it . Wish it had not rained so much because it will take a while to dry out . One good thing is the gorge is back in play on the south side of Price . That is always a rush to go in and fly out of . Now only wish they would put a bridge back in at the five mile mark on the north side . As always this trail just needs more riders . For those of you who complain about the bumps in some spots I am almost 65 years young riding a hardtail with an old Mag 20 shock and I get along just fine . AKA Owosso Bob

water, water, everywhere

I went out to Sleepy Hollow this afternoon with the intention of doing a lap or 2 and made it all of a 1/4 mile before bailing. Most of the trails have 3-4 inches of standing water, and another 3-4 inches of mud in spots. Depending on the weather maybe a week or two before it dries out...?

From my experience, the trail usually isn't dry until after June 1.

It's wfo in the late summer and fall... Just beware the blind corners.

Sleepy Hollow

Postby Corunna » May 21st, 2008, 1:27 pm

Rode sleepy hollow today and found some down trees near #2 trail. Also there are several muddy spots on the trail. Give it another couple of weeks with no rain and it should be in good shape. One of the section that crosses over the horse trail the bike trail ends in a swamp you have to portage around to get back on the trail and watch out for the mud. 8)

The grass is getting high again and the trails still have down trees. I am going to try and meet with the park ranger on Friday to see if we can get the down trees cut up. Even if I have too get the trusty chainsaw and do it myself. The trails are mostly dry. The only thing it needs are more riders. :wink:

Today was a great day

Postby Corunna » June 23rd, 2008, 2:30 pm

All the down trees have been removed. The grass has been mowed. Just be carefull of the foot bridge it tends to take your front wheel out from underneath you when wet. Yes I took a pretty good spill today. Had a very pleasent ride. Need more riders out there.

If there are anyone that would like to volunteer please let me know we are trying to set up some trail days and some races at sleepy hollow.

Sleepy holliow was great today

Postby jweller007 » July 4th, 2008, 9:30 pm

Celebrated the 4th by riding and kayaking at Sleepy Hollow. Trail is in great shape-especially given the storms last week. How many riders does it take to wear out more of the grass? Once again I didn't see anybody else on the trail once i got away from the lake.

Rode the trail on July 24th. It was clear and no problems. I thought it was a pretty good workout, could use some more riders.

Postby water-ratt » September 5th, 2008, 8:34 pm

Did a couple loops on the holiday, everything's nice. My first time here in a while; only problem was the creek between 8 and 9? (or so) i was riding the wrong way i guess and almost ended up in the water :o

also tons of poison ivy!! new incentive to stay on the bike and on the trails!

It would be great if we could put a bridge over that river inbetween 8 and 9 or make it so its crossible. It would be even better if we could put a sweet single track inbetween sections 13 through 2. This area is fast but could be technical with a good single track.
