i would assume so, since he mentioned Hess Rd, which is the road you take to get to the trailhead of Holdridge. Although, it sounds as if he is riding the Meadow portion of the East Loop, and Ron has mentioned a few times in the Trail Conditions thread that it was flooded a few feet deep, and his last message about Orchard said that it shouldn't be ridden as of a week ago.
