If you have not been out to O'Bannon lately GO. Huge thanks to all of the volunteers and trail builders. Trails are drying out nicely? Find out for yourself what is going on.

Yep, that's right--more rain right now, with more rain in the forecast.


My suggestion is don't even think about it...

Trails should be yellow right now. Been a whole week without rain.

The trails are hot and sweaty, with some wet and slippery spots.


Some trees have been reported down on the Group Camp Trail.


If you see horses on the bike trails, please report them to the Park Office ASAP.


Thanks!

Apparently three large trees are down on the Group Camp Trail. (Which brings up an important issue--We need a couple more chain saw operators willing to do a chainsaw safety seminar. We only have two approved operators and when they are busy, the trees don't get removed. PM me for details.)

There may also be a few lingering wet areas--mostly ruts left over from riders ignoring the trail status lights.
