Trail was in awesome condition Wednesday. I'm going to try to make it out there again tomorrow before it closes for the summer. Here's our ride: http://youtu.be/ATcJZt-jd2Y

I went out there today for the first time. I am way out of shape! Did they add some new trails? It looked like the trails didn't match up with the map exactly. How much did they add if they did? thanks

Trail was in great shape the other day. Even saw a black bear down by the river! :shock:

Too bad we could not get a picture of him/her, was moving away from us at a pretty good clip. See you again in the fall my friend.

Thinking about riding here Saturday--how's the trail? More importantly, how will it be after the rain today and tomorrow? If anyone could post a quick trail condition update later on friday after the storms move on, I'd truly appreciate it! It's a long drive to make only to find the trail isn't ridable...

Is the trail currently open/worth riding?
I've got a family function near this trail and was thinking if bringing my bike.

Still snow on the trails? Itching to ride!
On 2 wheels, or thinking about them

Rode the medium loop yesterday after work. There is a tree down in the last .75 mile (about 12 inch diameter pine), but otherwise the trail was in pretty good shape.

I also happened to see a porcupine just off the trail with about 1 - 1.5 miles to go...probably the same one I saw last year in that area!
