Barely Yellow.  Lots of puddles and seeps.  I would skip Green Valley, Limekiln, Weedpatch, and Hobbs until  Saturday afternoon.
Also,  there is the DINO race both Saturday and Sunday.

Yellow   Be ready to ride gravel or the road if it's too wet.
Rain predicted all week.  Don't ride in the mud.

Red going into Friday. Have had over 2" of rain the past two days at 7PM on Thursday.


With the continuing rains it isn't easy to know when it's going to be OK to ride.  Did some drain opening today and there were long sections of North Tower wet and sloppy, and it's the first-up trail usually.

Ed - thanks again for keeping this thread updated.  For me, it's a lot easier than Facebook to find what I need!

You're welcome!
Red Friday, at least until late afternoon.
About 2.3" of rain the past 3 days, and 2 of that has been in the last 24 hours.
North Tower, Aynes, and Hesitation Point will be ridable first.
Gates on Hobbs and Pine are likely closed.

I haven't seen the trails yet, but a strong  storm went through overnight.  Lots of trees down and probable wet trails.

Rode yesterday from camp ground to d trail in Yellowood.  Very wet.  Also, lots of trees down on the fire road.  Chain saw.

Should be Yellow about now.
Doesn't look like any more than a trace of rain has fallen.
Don't go around closed gates at Hobbs and Pine.

Yellow aside from Pine Loop.
Opened the gate to  Hobbs,  if too many poached it while it was closed and rutted it up/caused it not to drain, I might close the gate to limit the repairs the volunteers that fix the trail need to do.

Trees are down on a few trails. 
Near ideal conditions.

Friday the 18th forecast has severe storms in the area starting around 6:30 PM and into Saturday morning.  Scattered thunderstorms for Sat, Sun, and Mon.


Rainfall amounts weren't given, but Saturday afternoon and Sunday look OK if there aren't many showers after the Friday night storms.
Expect fallen branches and trees. Clear what you can safely.
