If you notice your posting has been deleted, please do not get discouraged.  I am just trying to keep this thread to the most recent trail conditions.  Please continue to post your thoughts on the trail conditions.

Thanks

If you wait for good weather to ride in Indiana you will be waiting forever.

Check the color of the dot before riding. Thank you.

Trails don't close this time of year. Every time it rains someone puts up the red dot when trails are actually rideable. Go Ride !

The trails actually do close to mountain bike traffic during and after a rain. We don't have the manpower for someone to get the gate closed everytime it rains then reopen when the trail dries. Ever wonder why there are no ruts at RNP even though a few people ride while it's wet?  Volunteers are fixing ruts with hoes, shovels, and rakes. This is not a fun job, but it's important to keep the trail in good shape.  Those volunteers would much rather be using that time for trail enhancements such as banked turns, bridges, and lengthening the trail.  Please do not ride wet trails. If the dot is red, trail is closed to wheeled traffic.  Volunteers use wet days to do trail work. You will run into them if you are out there when you are not suppose to be.  They don't want to ask you to walk your bike out and leave, but they will.  Please do not put them in that situation.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

BTW, A group trail work day will be posted soon. We sure could use help. Stay tuned for upcoming info.

Trail is cleared of storm debris and green.
