Last night, SC was green.  LC was yellow.  There's not really any deep mud, just a lot of slick spots and puddles in the usual places.

Did a easy, mostly urban, ride yesterday. Rode SC trail, it was in great shape, two spots where some mud was not fully frozen, easily avoidable.  There is a tree down about a quarter mile in, just past the second bridge.

Too bad it's going to rain.  Trails were perfect today.

Side note:  Some )*&(&*& dug up the flat rock just a little bit after Dream Pipe.  Makes no sense why someone would do that.
Shin guards! We don't need no stinkin' shin guards!

I noticed that too. There used to be a small tree there too which made me usually veer to the right of that rock(although sometimes I would hop it). But when that tree disappeared I would sometimes make a straight beeline to the left of the rock. I was thinking as I passed it that someone dug it up to help steer people back to the right where the trail seems to curve around the rock.

Hit the trails on my run this afternoon; conditions were much better than I expected. I'd call it yellow, but it's still a bit wet on the open/meadow/south end of Schoen, and LC behind the sled hill has a patch of slippery. Everything else was solid. Just wet leaves on top. There was a guy riding it and I could hardly see any tracks. Should certainly be nice by Friday.

Anyone been out on the trails since Wednesday?  Do you think This afternoon (Friday) will be rideable?

I just checked Schoen. Low areas near first two bridges are real damp, but no puddles. 'Could' ride around I suppose. High areas are great.  I bailed out. Maybe tomorrow.
Riding my SuperFly is a great escape!

I did an exploratory lap tonight and we're looking pretty good. Cleared a few grade reversals and drains that leaves were clogging up. The weather forecast for the next stretch of days looks really good.  I'd call it leafy yellowish green tonight moving to leafy green if the temps hold

As of today, Schoen is passable and is mostly yellow with some slick leaf coverage and a couple of soft wet places. Lawrence Creek going from the connector onto Snake Creek is really messy and mucky. I would avoid that part. Not sure of the rest as I bailed after getting to the parking lot.
