Getting better with more traffic. Other than a couple drifts and the climb up the pond bluff the main singletrack is all rideable. Some is bumpy due to "grooming" with snowshoes, but with the right tire pressure that's not a problem.

Anybody ridden RHP lately? Wondering if it's too sloppy/muddy and would tear up the trails.
Thoughts?

I rode a full RHP yesterday. It was in good shape aside from a few spots that were muddy. The Munger Rd section was in really good shape and only muddy in the usual spot near the end before exiting the woods. It probably wouldn't hurt to give it other week to dry out further.

Bikes with skinny tires (<3"): please stay off the trail for another few days. At this point there are enough soft areas that you'd be leaving ruts. Should be good to go by next weekend if the rain they're predicting mid-week isn't too heavy.

Fat bikes (3"+ tires): trail is good to go for you. Please make an effort to squash any of the skinny-tire ruts you come across in the softer sections. And please remember to do the new North meadow loops since they still need traffic to ride in thoroughly.

All users: please stay off the RHP singletrack for the time being. This includes fat tire bikes, skinny tire bikes, and even hikers. All users are damaging the trail as of this afternoon.

The mid-week rain and recent freeze/thaw have not been kind to the trail. It is in worse condition today that it was when I rode last weekend. There are even new skinny tire ruts (sigh).

Fat bikes (4"+ tires) can probably ride in a couple days after things firm up a tad. It will likely be soft but that's a good time to try to smooth out the ruts left by prior riders.

Skinny tire bikes (under 4") will probably need to wait a week assuming we don't get a bunch of new rain.
