I just did a lap of lc and it was a mix of dry almost pavement like hard pack for 70-90%  but all Creek crossings and some spots were loose still but had dry trail next to them. Now when I say loose I'm running 45psi in a 26x1.95 small block eights.

Yea. I rode Saturday and it really should be green. I like the flowing creek crossings.. It's like a little bit of Brown County here in Indy :)

Has anyone been out to the fort? I feel like we didn't get very much rain (at least compared to forecast) on Friday and Saturday. Was looking to ride tomorrow evening and hoping it would be good.

I'm here now, and it's about as GREEN as green can be.  Couple spots we haven't fixed yet are holding water, but if you've ever ridden the Fort before, you will NOT be shocked by any of them

Tree is gone just after the new wood pile on Schoen.  No more knocking the tree with your handlebars.

Awesome! I've been afraid to try that because of that tree and my 750mm bars :)

I was there this morning to retrieve check point markers from our Central Indiana Adventure. I would call it yellow, won't be green for a couple days.

Trail is still red.

Want to mention for when the trail goes yellow or green, take it easy on the new banked turn just before the pill box.  It's going to be soft and loose for awhile until it gets settled in and packed down.

Tree limb down on LC just after the connector trail to the gravel lot.

Walked all of LC today.  Lots of soft/mud spots, but most of the trail is in good shape.  Will be good to ride Monday.
One really bad spot on the LC downhill and another on the left turn after the first log drop.

I would avoid riding behind the barracks completely.  Long stretches of mud.  Schoen is worse than LC overall.

Assuming still red tonight on this section?
