was out early morning on Saturday, frozen crust was good and rideable but slow going. counted a herd of 18 deer, never saw that many out there before. also a herd of hikers packing down the trail Need more fat bikes out there to get in packed in good.
Took the fatbikes out for a ride here. Rode around the lake, starting at the beach(crossed thru the field to access) and cutting out at the park entrance. Decent shape overall. There are numerous mud/water holes throughout. All were passable, but a couple were pretty special. Skeeters weren't an issue, but lots of swarming flies. Dryer sheets, or some other form of deterrent recommended.

Mike and I rode yesterday. We didn't do the outside loop behind HQ 13-14 cause that is usually wet. We continued around the lake to the boat launch then jumped on the rode. Everything looked pretty good.
Well, it is finally dried up. Lots of deep ruts cut in to contend with, was glad I had the fat bike. Otherwise in great condition, no downed trees and everything is mowed and trimmed nicely. Thank you Dave.
Make sure your bike is ready to go, cause if you have to stop, the deer/horse flies will have you stripped down to a skeleton in a matter of minutes. Anything less than 10 mph you have a dark cloud of flies engulfing you.
Rode today and the trail was in good condition. There's a downed tree on the south side of Price (looks in the process of being cleared) and a head banger about 3/4 of a mile north of the drive on the west side along Shepardsville. Other than that some trail debris and a couple minor wet spots but no real issues. The patched areas along the north end are a great improvement and have settled nicely.
