Ok, I just got off of the phone with Eddie. He says that he had one of the rangers go out and look yesterday an there is a section of trail between 35 and 36 that has some standing water on it. It is a 60 to 80 foot section.
He is going to let me know later for sure, but it sounds like the way around it is to splash through Clay Culley and take the bailout to the pavement. This will only cut out a few tenths of the ride, but will keep the trail from getting rutted.
Also, for those of you that didn't know, Heartbreak Ridge is closed due to high water (it is heartbreak island right now).
