I took a slow ride around the whole 9 miles last night. Everything on high ground is very dry - I didn't leave any tracks. But there are about 15 low spots where there are deep mud pits about 3 feet in diameter. The good thing is, the trail is so open that none of them snuck up on me. I had plenty of time to dismount and walk.
I don't think it ever rained last night like it was supposed to, so it should be ok to ride friday and saturday (rain sunday). Just watch out for the puddles.
There were tons of animals on the trail as well; way more than I usually see. 2 snakes, 2 beavers, a ton of squirrels and chipmunks, and a deer. There were even deer tracks going down the near vertical drop off in the second half (the one with 2 arrows pointing down). That's one hardcore deer!
