We had the chance to do a little riding this AM and found that the "double log" had returned. It didn't look official but I don't mind logs so I left it.

Just thought the Trail Bums should know this is out there :)

I am not aware of anyone I know restoring that feature.  We have planned on it, but not yet implemented it.  It must be a rogue restoration.

With how dry it's been and the rain we got last night. What's the chance of a ride here this morning.

The Lenape Trail should be OK to ride, the new multi-use loop may be OK but a little greasy in spots, so tread lightly. 

The new flow trail is a definite RED condition.

Rode  mid afternoon the rain did the trails good  nocked the dust down  and  was nice and tacky I stayed away from flow trail. There were not may riders for a nice  afternoon. I wish when walkers  bring there dog's  would have them on a leash most do but a lot don't. It chased me and I just about  got a dog bite. When she got the dog under control the lady told me should have had the leash on it  and was sorry. More riders started to show up as I was leaving

Trails are in real good shape including the flow trail which has packed down nicely!

Glad to hear there are plans to restore it. What was behind its removal?

There is a large tree down on the levee, and a smaller tree down on Mann Hill's technical climb/descent. Everything else was in excellent shape!

Fallen tree has been dispatched.  Trails are dry and dusty.  Some rain will help.

Dirt was pretty darn good yesterday evening.  A little soft on the south end by the levee, but everything else was nice.  The new trails are looking better and better!  ;D

Large, dead tree across trail on multi-use trail...by power line tower.  CAUTION:  it can come up on you pretty quickly from either direction, maybe faster going CCW.

I hiked the newest trails today with my kids and they were in great condition. I didn't hike anything else but I would assume it's all rideable.
