Great shape last night. Still very tacky in the corners. Too bad the rain today. If it stops this AM it should still be good to go this evening.
Rode everything forward (daylight) and reverse (after dark). The red loop is really entertaining in reverse.

How's it look for a ride tonight? Enough time to dry out by this evening?

Barring a positive report, I'm planning an alt ride at Rose Lake.

Probably be out from ~4:30 till near dusk. Will meet at TH any time in between, should anyone be inclined to join.

Guessing it will be fine after a day and half of dry out time. I have to ride early and be at kid's school by 7:00.

Just rode red. Trail is moist and tacky, but solid. A couple of puddles. a handful of soft spots. Definitely ride worthy.

Big tree down on lower green. It is ~50-100 yds in front of the other large log cut through just before you get to the river. You'll need a big chainsaw and maybe two people.

Thanks Chris, but I think you meant to say 'big trail fairy'. I'll try to get out there Monday evening.

It's those two that have been leaning over the early part of Green - just a matter of time until they fell. I heard a big crash from the lot when I was packing up to go a couple of days ago and pulled the bike off the rack to go see if it was them - and it was not. Just a short time later and they are down. I don't know what else fell.

They could make a sweet stunt (with bypass)! I'm just sayin' ...

Ron, have the trail fairy let me know what time he will be out there. I might be able to help.

Thank you John and Matt, that is quite a tree. I suspected it was that one as it was leaning since the fall storms.

Too wet to ride so took the kids to the woods for a small project. Did a little rearranging in that same area to fix something I did in the fall that made the trail worse instead of better. Also added a small skinny option. It should ride better now and I hope the skinny rides nice too.

Trail is still a little messy and slow, but should firm up over the weekend. Looks like dry weather all next week.

UPDATE: Went for a walk/project this evening and the trail was much dryer than this morning.

The trail was pretty dry yesterday. Saw a few poeple out there who said there were a few puddles in some low spots. Let me know if you make it out today and what time.
