What would be the approximate mileage of that route (Nebo-> Hickory 19,18,etc, back)?

nebo, hickory 19, 18, 20, nebo back we end up around 28 usually. Shorter above if you take combs road but that's not as fun.

Does anyone know what the current conditions are at Nebo and Gnaw Bone? I am heading down to Brown County Friday and was curious whether these trails might be green if Brown County is still red.

The single track part of Nebo will be fine, but the double track section will be a mess. I would recommend starting from the south end.

Rode Gnawbone tongiht,  it was fine,  lots of the valley trails have alluvial deposits in the stream beds from the flooding, and some giant leaf piles.  Fun times!!  The lake roads was pretty badly washed out and the hotel building flooded.

Nebo and hickory 19, 18, 20 were awesome yesterday. So was the brat and beer at story inn afterwards ;)
Couple horsed out muddy spots on the double track but not as bad as i would have thought.

Do you guys tht ride vbr regularly think it will be up for a ride tomorrow. I know that the other trails won't be. But was hoping to take my son down there tomorrow and show him what old school hard core mountain biking is like.

     For a few of us VBR has become our go to trail with all the rain this spring and summer.  You"ll pick up a little slop here and there, but never seem to do damage to the trail. Its so leaf covered that it remains firm even if wet on top.  Just beware of the slick roots and log piles out there, they are the only hazards when things are so wet! Have fun!  O'yeah, creek crossing might be a little more interesting also!  ::)

And beware the first time going down copperhead. The water bars get big at the bottom when you are going too fast....ask my collarbone how I know....

We rode nebo/hickory on Sunday, no issues with hunters, saw a few bikers out there but overall pretty quiet. Trails were mostly good some horsed out areas in Hickory but not bad.

Just be sure to wear bright colors if you can.
