West Loop wasn't very dry last night. Had to walk many sections. Lots of ruts from bike tires, including fat bike ruts.

I didn't do the West. Mostly east and the wetland hill on higher ground. Could not sink or mush down any ruts that were drying out. I couldn't believe someone actually rode in deep mud in the connector to Lucky Dawg.

Has anyone tried to ride Morty lately? Any reports?

Tried to ride a couple of sections and ended up turning around pretty quickly. I'd say maybe a couple more weeks until its dry?

The pump track is really fun though! :)

When driving into the park off Michigan Ave there's a huge hole on the right side just as you are coming out of your turn. Also watch for cars going slow at that spot, lots of small craters on the road. West loop is best, I avoided most of the east loop, rode all of the two track. From what I could see some sections are rock hard dry, and some by the parking lot are greasy. If the rain holds out tomorrow, I'm thinking more might be rideable in the afternoon.
