Rode there yesterday and conditions were perfect! The green trail descent from the peak of the hillside clockwise down toward the mailbox is about as fun of a trail section as I have ridden!

Trees that were reported down on the blue trail have been removed by the resort staff.
Trails are in great shape

Trails are in great shape! Lots of work has been done to repair the rain washouts. Nice to meet Tracy and Her Husband on the trail. Not so nice to have been knocked out by the low hanging tree though.

John, very nice to get to meet you and your group as well. You guys were super nice and we enjoyed getting to talk to you. Hope to get the tree down this week, and thank you to Stephanie for getting the red tape for us to mark it. Appreciate it a lot.

The low hanging tree has been cleared. Good to see everyone on the trail yesterday having fun.
Metrology has nothing to do with  weather.

The area did get a little rain overnight but nothing to really worry with on the trail. Hopefully settled some of the dust down.
Ride safe and enjoy

Three of us rode two laps on the green this morning, and it was in great shape. A little damp in places, but we came away with clean bikes. There was a tree down about .5 mi on the green going clockwise, but we dragged it off of the trail. So, if the maintenance crew had been told about the tree, please let them know that it has been taken care of.

THANKS Yellowrocketbike for the report on the trail. Their had been one a little before that last week that we got out, but this must of been a new one. Appreciate you getting it moved off the trail for us.

Steve couldn't find any bodies in this wreck on the Awesome Blue Trail. Must have survived. Or the critters got 'em.

Trail condition - rocky.

Yes, lot's of rocks.  First time at French Lick.  Great!  If only it was closer to the north side of Indy!

Trails were in great shape today! Rode all of them. There were just a few small sticks here and there.  I wish FL was closer to the indianapolis area. That place is a blast!

The Valley has had a lot of rain today with more on the way. Grounds are saturated. Please avoid.
