I came across this guy spread across the southern trail entrance last night....needless to say I took this as a "you shall not pass" and headed back.

I haven't been to the trail, but at my house (3 miles east) we were absolutely dumped on at about 4:30pm. Probably a good half inch or so... Water was swirling down into the storm drains.

River bends is fine to ride. Few branches down but easily hopped over.

Yesterday before Got MTB I cut out all the fallen trees and head-height hanging things from the Swamp Loop. It's still damp in spots, but plenty ridable, especially on a fat bike. And completely clear.

If you want some technical root riding, give it a go. Lots and lots of things to carefully pick lines and crawl over.
