HMBA trail status is showing yellow conditions for much of BCSP.  Does that mean freeze/thaw considerations no longer apply?  In other words, can I ride after it warms up this afternoon?

If nobody gets to check in person it's a situation where you have to bail if the trails are soft. My guess is that the trails will be too soft in a lot of places. North Tower and Aynes are usually the first to be ready.
 
To everyone: I know making the drive to the park not knowing if the trails are OK isn't something anyone wants to do, so having a gravel or road route as a backup can save the trip. I know that isn't appealing to everyone either, but please don't take the stance of "I went there, don't care, so I'm trail riding anyway".

Just FYI, I got a call from a friend in Bloomington that rode BCSP yesterday afternoon.  He said the trails were in great shape and there was no mud, just a couple of puddled areas...so you should be good today.  Just keep in mind there's a chance for rain on Wednesday and this time of year it takes much longer for the moisture on the trails to clear.

Trails were good today while I was out clearing some drains.
Green Valley is solid Yellow. With the possible rain I didn't check Pine Loop or Hobbs.

Did some work on Limekiln. Trail had a lot of puddles and very active seeps. Some of the trail surface was soft where it looked dry.
I would say red conditions until Tuesday afternoon, then North Tower and Aynes should be yellow. Hobbs is closed, Pine might be. I would skip Green Valley until it dries more.

I've not been to the trails, but with the rain for the past couple of days it's a good idea to plan you weekend ride somewhere you know is dry or an all weather trail system.

Ed - as an hour-away enjoyer of the BCSP trails, I thank you for these small updates.

Thanks Draggon.
During the iffy times I try to post after trail work or riding. I know some folks wonder when there is a gap in condition updates and it has shown Yellow on MTB Project for 5 days if it is still the same. I forget to update MTB Project now and then, but anyone can sign in and modify the conditions there if they check the trails and see the info needs updated.

Trails were good.  Sunday there is a chance for thunderstorms most of the day so conditions may change. 
Hobbs may open Monday. Had some landslide sections that were worked on with an excavator and were like peanut butter earlier today.

Looks to be Yellow, with Hobbs closed.
