Outback Trail at Imagination Glen / Re: Trail Conditions

Sorry this thread hasn't been kept up to date. Currently as of todays date the majority of the trail is rideable. The Roller Coaster section is closed until further notice due to erosion issues caused by the extreme amount of rainfall we've had this year.

A lot of rain this week with more coming. Yesterday we were able to do a high ground reversal on the trail. Hopefully NOT too much more rain for a while. Basement, Trailor Run are closed as is Far Creek Run.

I'll be up in South Bend here in a few weeks and was checking out some trails up North. Can anyone give me a description of how "technical" the advanced trail is. What kind of obstacles does it have? Anything about the trail. I looked at the website and watched some of the videos but they dont really say much. Can anyone help? I would consider myself an advanced/technical rider.

We don't have a lot of obstacles a few log skinnys, an area we call the log jam that has log piles close together as to make going over a little more difficult. Private Message me and I'll try to have someone meet you out as its a little over 10 miles of singletrack with short, steep ups and not a lot of flow. But we like it. If you're staying in South Bend also check out Rum Village Pathway in South Bend, Dr. T.K. Lawless Park near Vandalia, Mich. & Potato Creek State Park which has a nice 6+ mile intermediate/beginner trail. The South Bend Mountain bike group is Northern Indiana Mountain Bike Association, their website is http://www.nimba-bike.org/ Hope to see you out on the trails. I think the weekend of May 21st-22nd is a NIMBA Campout at Potato Creek also.

 ;D The Outback Trail @Imagination Glen is in really good condition for this time of the year. Our 3rd Mid-Week Madness Wednsday Afternoon Group ride had a really good turnout. 18 riders showed up for a great ride. The Basement, Far Creek Run and Trailer Run are still closed. Hike around any other muddy sections please.

Saturday March 19th we will have a workday at The Outback Trail @Imagination Glen. We will meet at the east side trailhead off of Indiana State Road 149 by the soccer fields at 8:00 AM Check our website http://www.outbacktrail.org or our Facebook site http://www.facebook.com/group.php?v=wall&gid=112161553134 for updates. On the task list for the day cut out some fallen trees and pin flag an alternate route between the basement and the trailer run.

WE are still at least 2 mos. away from any riding at The Glen. Spring Thaw coupled with the rain has most of our low ground completely underwater. Will post when trail dries up enough for at least high ground reversal.
