Besides quite a bit of leaves on the trail, it is in good shape and only a couple wet spots (seem to have been there all summer). If you are willing to risk biting it from time to time you can haul down the trail from the end to the trail head. Had fun riding it tonight and pushed myself more than usual and the people I rode with and had a blast!

FWIW, I ride CRPT pretty much all Winter. In many ways, it's a better Winter trail than a Summer trail. But any trail is great in the Fall! :icon_thumleft:

Rode CRPT/RB today. Both have plenty of leaves but in good shape. Same old wet spot after one of the bridges at CRP. The trail is widening around that spot to avoid the muck. I avoided the swap at RB again but other than that it was in good shape. The leaves have plenty of traffic to tell which direction the trail goes at both parks. :D

Aaron was able to get out and spend the day working on CRPT. When I say the day I mean the whole day 8.5
hours working on the trail. He was able to clear deadfall, put down 5 loads of fill in some of the low spots,
repair a log crossing and leaf blow the entire trail!! CRPT is in great shape get out and ride it!!

Way to go Aaron :icon_cheers: :icon_cheers:

Rode it today, this time I didn't get lost in the south end due to losing the trail. Really nice work out there.

Please post up any downed tree / deadfall locations. I've got to assume it is a mess from the storm. Aaron or I will get
to them ASAP. Thanks.
