Per guidance from the Resort, the trails are closed until further notice.
A lot of trees down across the trails and area that need addressed.
They are hoping the next several dry days will greatly improve the situation-barring any further rain.
Thank you

Don't wanna be the trail police, but please don't walk around wet areas of trail. That just serves to widen trails, which we don't want. Jump over or ride straight thru please.  Thanks!

Rode both loops today and both of them just need some basic maintenance. Mostly cleaning organic from drains and grade reversals.  I did about ten of them but many more exist. The water is REALLY flowing out at FL. Spectacular scenery with beautiful waterfalls.  Get it while you can.

I also picked up a lot of downfall out there today. A couple big trees need cut out as well. One is located at sign 22

Hello all, new to the forums here.


I am from the French lick area. I also rode both loops on Saturday. Me and my buddy also picked up a ton of downfall, some small trees and larger limbs. The blue loop has at least two trees that I can remember that need cleared up, one of them is fairly large. For the most part the trail is nice and dry but there are several little mud spots in the shadier areas yet.
