And even though it's been a month since you wrote that, you'd still be correct. The bottom of the first hill (at the Big Lake boat launch enterance), even though there is a by-pass, both of those options are pretty wet. The creek crossing is muck almost from the turn (with impromptu stick / log "bridge"), the high grass section that is usually muddy in the spring is exactly as expected, in fact the bypass for that area is even still a little moist, there is an actual creek still running through the ditch at the broken off and leaning tree, and the 50 feet past that ditch was still muck. From there it's ok until you come out of the woods at the other boat launch, where the grassy trail is still mucky. I carried the bike as much as I rode it through the boat-launch-to-boat-launch section yesterday. I bailed after that because I was pressed for time, so I never even got to check out the main loops.
