I believe if the park is Red/closed, there is no racing.

Fort Harrison State Park / Re: Fort Harrison Trail Conditions - 2015

Yeah I know the drill, but since most of the recent negative trail updates refer to LC I figured I would check just in case.

There are enough bad spots on Schoen for it to also be red.

If one trail is red, they all should be considered red.  If people see you riding one trail they will think all the trails are good to ride. 

We need to do our best to limit traffic at the Fort as much as possible.  Damage to the trail is already worse than I've seen it in past years.

Trails were great today. It has been about 4 years since I last rode Wapehani and it is still a blast. The rock features in the expert section were very cool!

Any opinions on whether conditions will improve later today? Going to be in Bloomington for a meeting a 2 and was thinking of swinging by Wapahani afterwards, sometime around 3:30 or so.

Ditto on what Dave and Fett said, and I will add my two cents.

The start at TRTP is a little interesting, as you start on the gravel road behind the parking lot. The "road" goes over two short hills, and I would be careful on the second one. I've seen people go over the top and then over the bars because they had a lot of speed and were not prepared for it and go flying.

$30 bucks for a day and your dog gets socialized and then comes home and sleeps like a rock. Or at least mine does. Perfect for an all day ride to the IMBA Epic Hall of Fame Epic Brown County State Park.

The new bike seems to have worked out for you.

Trails were looking good yesterday during my pre-ride after the short track race A few wet spots, but overall very good riding.

France Park in Logansport is about 30 minutes away up US-35. It has the foundations for a trail system in place and could probably benefit from a motivated group of riders who would want to make improvements.

Westwood / Re: Trail Conditions
« on: May 24, 2014, 03:01:30 PM »
Westwood was good today. The tread was perfect. One muddy spot and that was all. The weeds were mostly good. The section on the east side between the power line crossing and the floating bridge was getting rough with low honeysuckle, etc. Wished I had brought my mini clippers along with me. The grass in some of the open areas (along the Big Dig, power line crossing and  the upper part of the dam) was getting long as well.

I did notice a few reroutes where I could see new bench cutting done. Interesting to see technique differences between the original trail (built about 10 years ago?) and the reroutes.

Overall a great ride and workout.

Any updates? Thinking about making a return trip to Westwood tomorrow morning for the first time in 3 years.
