Conditions are decent, and as to be expected with a multi-use trail - a few piles of horse manure on the trail, and several sections of horse divots in the sand. The standing water is surprising South of the main East/West trail near the bridge, given that the water in the creek itself is pretty low, a couple of feet below the top of the big culverts. Skipped that whole area.
A lot of chainsaw work has been done out there since I was there last, somebody has removed a lot of logs across the trail, even little ones that were easy to get over. It feels dumbed-down, like so many other trails around here lately.
Went over to Anderson afterwards and really noticed how much better the trailbed is there than at Rose Lake. Had a good ride at both, though.
The bugs were bad in the parking lot, and I applied spray immediately. I didn't really slow down once I got on the trail, so I'm not sure how they were inside the trees. Bad, I suspect. The bugs at Anderson Park were minimal, if any.
