Latest Trail Conditions after the rains yesterday??
« on: September 14, 2009, 02:58:56 PM »
Anybody ridden the trails?  They were pretty sloppy last week, before the rains yesterday.  Any ideas?  Is it super super wet and muddy?  Should I stick to my road bike for a few days ????(and keeps your derisive comments to yourself about the road bike!)

you should embrace the road bike - I got in 83 miles saturday while my MTB buddies cried about trail conditions.  Plus the road biking should make you a better mTBer.

3 guys I road ride with regularly raced in the FSC MTB series last week...all 3 ended up on podium.  The proof is in the pudding.

Rode Boyette yesterday and the trails where is good condition, besides needing trimming.  Very little standing water except fot the two-track in. 
 
We rode SST, Loch Ness, Upper Loch Ness, Randy's Trail, Spider Berm (upper and lower), Gator Pit, Golf Cart, Canyon, Spur, East Meadow, Northeast, Northwest, Palmetto Cable, Vista Ridge, West Meadow, Baby Nessie, and Inner Loch Ness.
 
North Abyss had a couple of puddles and several places where the roots are slick.
What was I THINKING !!!!!!

Replying to my own post.  Tried to ride the loop yesterday at Wilderness, starting off at TC and going up Panther to the road to 37.  Panther had standing water.  From 37 to Clay Gulley there was some standing water on the trail, then the next section past Clay Gulley (which was as deep as I'd ever seen it; water flowing fast) was way under water.  The trail just disappeared.  We bailed and took the jeep road to the paved loop.

We rejoined the main loop and took it all the way back to Hole in the Fence.  The other side of the street was in pretty good shape, but we just stayed on the main trail.

River crossing on the main trail...photos taken this past TH. 
 
Conditions were a bit wet for the 1-2 miles afterwards, but otherwise the main trail was great.
