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.

Please check the color of the dot at the top of the screen for trail status.  If you have additional information please post here.  Runners, please keep us updated by posting here too.  Thanks.

When the trail is red, is riding the gravel roads and parking lot playground still cool?

When I rode expert a couple of weeks ago, the back section was extremely overgrown.  Does it still need to be cleaned up back there?

Almost the whole trail has been weedwacked and/or mowed.  With all the rain, it has grown back faster than usual, but it's still very rideable. I didn't get into any itch weed yesterday.  There were a few minor faceslappers.  Expert 2 is the only section that is tight.  It has purposely been left alone.

Just got back from riding.  Must have been the first to ride expert today.  I cleared a lot of spider webs along the way.


Everything is passable.  It's kind of soft and slow, but not too bad.


I don't understand leaving the trail overgrown.  It really ruins the flow of the trail.  It increases the chance of getting into poison ivy.  It's not fun...

You can ride the gravel road all the way down to the river.  Take that trail all the way to the other side of Anserson.  Feel free to slop up the trail along the river as much as you want.  It is not part of the mtbike trail system nor is it maintained in any way.

Have fun!

P.S. Erzberg (aka Expert 2) has not been trimmed.  It's very much rideable.  If you forget your goggles you might want to skip that 0.4 mile section.

Do you guys really want to leave that section untrimmed?  If it's just a matter of getting someone to do it I'll bring my trimmer next time.

Erzberg (aka Expert 2) was left untrimmed for a reason.  It will be trimmed soon, but not right now.  Can you use your trimmer on Intermediate between The Pier landing and the grass field?  That's the section we simply haven't got to yet and could use some help.  Please remember, do not cut out the canopy. Cut tunnels instead.  Also, the mowers will be ran down the trail so no need to trim the ground.  Focus on the sides such as faceslappers.  Thanks in advance for your help.
