I ride it basically every day once snow is gone.


I am usually out there at least a few times a week once its clear to ride. I wanted to get out there this week but illness has kept me inside. I plan on hiking out there this weekend to check on the trail conditions and clean up any fallen debris in the trail. Ill report back with what I find!


I'm going to try to make it out there Monday or Tuesday. Bringing a saw for down trees.

I rode Hungerford yesterday. The first half of the trail was really in pretty good shape, the second half of the big loop is still largely covered in snow. I did not ride the cut across so I'm not sure what it looks like right now. As far as conditions other than snow are concerned it wasn't that bad. A couple down trees, both could be bunny hopped but I'm hoping to make it out and clear them soon. There were a few climbs that could maybe have the leaves raked away too. It was not easy riding with my singlespeed, I just kept spinning out (but hey, that's largely in part operator error I'm sure hah)

Went out to Hungerford yesterday, clockwise, outside loop. Removed two down trees, no more large ones left. made a bypass for the 4 wheeler's mud run, all in all trail is in great shape.
A lot of leaves and derailleur snapping branches/twigs, going to try to rake or leaf blow this week/weekend. if anyone is riding let me know.
