I rode the trails last weekend 4/19.
the additions from last year survived through the winter pretty well. not much has happened to them at all.
Some of the other areas are suffering however.
When I went there and parked in my usual spot(in the swimming area gravel parking lot) I noted a massive amount of wood chip mulch piled up. As in about 7 foot tall mesa covering the majority of the parking lot. Kind of made me wonder what they were planning on using all of that for.
Well, I found some of it out there in the 'Hacks super secret trail' section. about half of it is now 4 foot wide walking path lined with wood chips. consistency of deep mud for bikes. Makes me pretty worried about the rest of the trails if they have that much mulch to work with I could see the entire trail system covered and widened.
I think maybe they might be headed in the wrong direction there.
BUT, other than that the trails themselves were pretty dry and ready for riding.
I have been running the Avid Mechanicals for years on multiple bikes (including my current hardtail) and love them. Never had any problems at all. Setup is fast and easy, changing pads is easy, and they are as quiet as can be....
Avid mechanicals ain't avid hydrolics.
I've got some BB7's and never had noise issues with them either. Juicy 3's, well they just suck

I should be able to help out.
Can't say i like the blurb about attracting horse riders. That's the last thing we need out there.
Bad enough dealing with walkers with there dogs crapping in the middle of the trails.
As for all the signage questions; from what I was told they try to leave them up but being that it is a campground filled with idle teens they don't seem to last long or get pointed the wrong way. You know fun stuff!!
yup, that'd be the one.
I always park at the beach parking lot at number 1 and start and finish from there.
I've modified the path a bit by removing some of the fourwheeler paths to do more singletrack but then I'm not worried about having two way traffic on the trails like a race course designer would have to consider.
They are ok, but i never felt like i had any idea where i was going. It seems as if i spent more time looking for the single track then riding it.
You should either go out there when someone who knows the trails goes out so they can show you the best path or do what I did and get a copy of the map the DINO guys use for the race that is there in august and you can just follow that.
I went there the weekend after the race and they had plenty of maps left over. I then just carried that around with me until I knew the way around.
This years race is 8/14 I think.
