I was there at noon. The trail is a solid yellow. However damp leaves can ruin your day.
Also there were a number of branches and deadfall on Schoen.
I moved what I could.

Quick hike of Snake Creek and there is NO standing water, just Hero Dirt covered in leaves. That's not yellow, in my book Ft Ben is green. Why did I tell my wife I'd pick up the kids?

Started at 2:30, rode full lap of CG, then CG, LC, connector, SC and the rest of LC (Ryan D. joined me for that last section).  Trails are in GREAT shape, slippery leaves and all!  Go Ride!  8)

I'm glad I went to ride instead of listening to the "OMGRD IT'S GUNNA RAIN" weather reports.  I felt a few sprinkles here and there, but the trails are still perfect.

Any word on how trails look this morning after all that rain last night? I am assuming the worst.

Green.  Looks like a great week ahead.  Temp's in the low 70's and no rain until Friday.

I hiked part of Camp Glenn around 2:00 today, and it was pretty green.  Trail was damp but firm, and I didn't see any slick spots.  But I'm sure there may be some puddles in the usual spots.

Trails are perfect, and the sign at the gatehouse says the park is open until 8PM.  Go ride!

*edit*  Also, there was a tree down on Schoen, but I took care of that.

Have they extended park hours?

Not as far as I know. This overlap always happens close to the DST switch. They will most likely change closing time soon. On the park map, it says "dusk" is the closing time.


However, the November events schedule says 4pm.

Obviously the sign at the gate house trumps all. If uncertain, call and ask.

That flyer says the Museum, Visitor's Center and Office are open until 4PM.  I saw no mention of Park Hours on there.  Sign at the gate says 8PM, then the park is open until 8PM.  If it says 7PM, then the park is open until 7PM.  Go, enjoy, and don't rock the boat by calling the park and reminding them what time the sun sets.  They are well aware.

If this boat capsizes and sinks prematurely because people are too obtuse to take subtle hints, I'm going to be pretty torqued.

I'm gonna try a night ride Wednesday after work, but don't worry Jeff, I will not call and ask about closing time. I'll just be sure to be out by 8pm. If anyone ruins this I'm gonna get fully torqued as well! I'll post my results here.
