Thanks!!!

Are you actually from Paradise? We were up there this summer for a week. LOVE it up there. :)

Most of the obstacles appeared to be there the last time I rode the trail, but some of them were pretty overgrown & in need of some TLC.

Gotcha. Moved down here a few years ago from Kalkaska.

Trail is clear of snow, but has two trees down on the orange loop. Some ice in spots, and some of it is VERY hard to distinguish, so ride with care over the next week. Had two hard crashes in one lap out there.

Has anyone been out here lately? I'm ready to ride, but want to make sure the trails are ready to go before I make the trip out to Ithaca.

Haven't been out there recently but Ithica usually takes quite a while to dry out compared to other trails. I would give it a while yet.

An absolute mess of mud, water and thorns. It'll be a while before I try again.

I'd never been here until the Fun Promotions race yesterday. I guess we rode it backward from the normal direction, but it was a fun trail. It reminded me of a slightly more open Hickory Glen with no log piles.

Rode on Friday, October 18th. Not the best choice of trail to ride in mid October. The trail itself is in fine shape, but it was so leaf covered & wet, that I couldn't get going with any speed since the trail is so twisty. This was my first time out here in the fall, & I think I'll stick to riding this trail in the summer.

Heavy snow; over 6" in places. Half a dozen or so trees down. Snow is not packed. Fat bike w/ultra low pressure or bust.
