If no rain comes, trail should stay no worse than yellow aside from Hobbs that is getting work done and Pine that is closed.
Only rode North Gate and North Tower as I haven't ridden since early November, so I might be off on the overall conditions.  Should expect the seeps on Green Valley and the top of Hesitation Point to be sloppy.  If someone knows better, please update here and MTBProject.



North entrance is open.  Please keep the social distance thing in mind so parks don't end up closed like the golf courses in Indianapolis.

Red until a few days after the rains let up.  Hobbs is closed, please don't use Hobbs or Pine when the gates are closed.


Look at riding one of the other nearby trails to give things a chance to firm up from heavy used while wet.

Red due to seeps and more rain.
Trail had a lot of seeps and puddling today.   Looks like there's going to be plenty of overnight rain.  Make plans to ride an alternate, low traffic trail location Friday if you have to go ride.
Saturday will likely be fine after the rain ends Friday.

The open trails are Green with some soft spots.
Limekiln is soft from recent work.
The hole on Bobcat was filled in today.
Reports of a hole on Hesitation Point.


DINO bike race Saturday and running race on Sunday.  They will use North Gate, North Tower, and Aynes.  Time they are on the trail will be longer than usual since the classes will be spread apart more.

Dry when I left before noon.
Wind was picking up, not sure if the thunderstorms materialized yet.  Predicted through tomorrow afternoon.  Doesn't look like a big amount of rain so the impact will likely be downed limbs and such.
Have to see what Wednesday brings.

Green.


Dry trail with some puddles from what little ran fell.  I poked open a couple of drains with a stick, feel free to help them drain.  Can also use some weed whacking if anyone cares to do some while on a ride.

Yellow bordering on Green.

Tree down on the far end of  North Tower. I didn't get that far, so I don't have the exact location.

Starting to get dusty even with a few spots that are wet.
High heat coming over the next few days, so be hydrated before your ride and have water with you on the ride.

Dry to where it's getting to the point of being dusty.

Damp and slippery roots and rocks.
Schooner has a diversion around a failing bridge.
