More rain today. Definitely moving much closer to the wettest April on record.
Unfortunately, the trails were still pretty messed up in places yesterday. With all the rain and water flowing, the reality is it's going to take a while for O'Bannon to dry out.
After further assessment, the Fire Tower Trail will remain closed until we can get a trail maintenance crew on it. We could really use some help, riders willing to do some berm busting and mud scraping, to get some of the places to stop holding water. A number of drains also need to be rebuilt. If you have a Rhino and can volunteer some time, it would be appreciated. If you need a Rhino and are willing to do some self-paced volunteer work, contact me.
Four of us spent an hour fixing only four drains on the connector between the campground and the Rocky Ridge intersection, and didn't even get a chance to look at Fire Tower, Rocky Ridge or the Group Camp Trails.
