Its easy to portage over.
Otherwise free and clear, not muddy at all. No puddles after the rain.
also my first ride clipped in. not too bad, only 1 messup dismounting on the clipped side

I would be interested to see how some of you guys on the Rochester side of things are riding down to this trail. The areas I went into today are over grown and uninviting. I wonder who handles trail maintenance in the Rochester Utica Rec Area. Which is what I used to try and approach RB without using roads to much
I made my approach from the letica drive parking lot (house is near there)..onto the MC trail and headed
East until I could take the right that runs you over the bridge and into the low end of bloomer. Ran that all the way to Yates..crossed over avon and took that same rail trail out the south end of Yates until it dead ends into a wet nasty looking canal. ( because of lack of knowledge) I started probing down deer trails looking for a thru route. I am interested to know who maintains that slightly unused portion of rail trail south of yates and into the backside of the Heron Rookery. The trash cans in that area are full and there are atleast three trees down acorss that trail.
Future riders should turn right and head down the stairs at the steel fence..This "man made game trail" will eventually pop you out in the heron rookery. which will get the rider to 22.5 and Ryan.
from there just ride down either road and get into the park..

I am going to go hike the trail to see if there is any new deadfall, and bring my pruning shears to take out some overgrowth that needs to be trimmed back.
