Rest of the trails were in good shape.

It drains very slowly and the clay holds the water longer than other trails.  The "options" are susceptible to bad erosion and  when it does dry the ruts harden in place.  No one likes closing the crown jewel of the park, but to limit major repair and renovation it closed in the rainy season.  Soon, we hope to open it, but it depends on Mother Nature and no bikes on wet days.  As soon as it opens notices will go out everywhere.  We will need some help to get it cleaned up and ready to ride, so for all of you who love to ride it, when it's time it would be nice to see you helping get it in shape again.
