My suggestion until I get out there and close some off.  Ride everything - except of course the slick, soft, muddy, mushy trails with clay content.  The Abyss's seem to be holding up good.  I rode North and others told me South wasn't bad.  Sidewinder up to the exit of Ridgeline is good, but it is trashed after that where bikes have sloshed through the wet, slick clay.  Ridgeline is wet, slick and mucky wherever you find clay - pretty much all of the drops and most climbs.  Garry's Loop has erosion on the 180 downhill switchback and needs people to stay off until it is repaired.

I rode everything else and got in 22 great miles of fun riding, leaving the wet stuff to heal and be there for another day.

I rode there today...Golf cart, gator pit, North and south abyss, pandemonium and sideinder up to exit of ridgeline. At that point went back and did Abyss again and found our way out.
All those trails were in good shape...stayed away from ridgeline
