Yellow and red loops mowed double wide today. Trail in pretty good shape and should be pretty fast.

A bit of mowing in the red and yellow loops today. It still needs to be finished, when the mowers back. Not in bad shape at the moment, but ticks are very bad.

No direct connection, but from the HCP parking lot you can ride a short distance to the corner of Bemis and Stoneycreek where you can hop on a connection to the full RHP trail.

Thanks to whoever was pruning the face slappers on the trail. Please toss them off the trail to cut down on the thorns and having them get caught in bike spokes.

We are closing off the orange loop of the trail due to our concerns for privacy of the the neighbors of the park. Some users have been crossing over into the adjacent private property, looking for help to find their way out of the park.

Please show our respect for the neighbors of this park. Likewise please watch out for users of the trail who may be new and/or lost in the park and please help them to find their way out.

Bummer. Closed permanently or is there a plan to reopen after some sort of change? I'd be willing to help with signage if needed.

Unless we can come up with some way to make sure users won't cross the fence line and intrude on the neighbors private property we'll keep it closed. It passes so close to the houses that users are freaking out when they're lost without a clue how to get back that they trespass to seek help. I guess some users are hiking in without a map, GPS, or maybe even a phone to find their way out. Bad news for the rest of the users, but the neighbors have to be respected.

I guess there's a similar situation at Rolling Hills now, where the neighbors are concerned about their privacy. The last thing we want to do is ride disrespectfully and lose the trails altogether.

Rode through a little yesterday and the trail is still very wet in most places. Lets leave it open but be easy in the really wet or muddy spots. Map box filled up for the weekend visitors.

Anyone know of the conditions today? Thinking about checking it out, but fear it may be soggy?

Too bad residents couldn't be so kind as to help people in need. I would assume if you are genuinely lost it is a terrible feeling.

One of the local hikers mentioned to me that the QR code for the map is not working. I don't have a way to check, so if anyone else could double check this and report back here, that would be much appreciated.

I haven't been here in a few months, does anyone have a trail conditions report? I will probably head out there sometime this week/end to scout for trail trimming in the next few weeks.
