I have to travel to southern IN tomorrow for work and was thinking about bringing my bike; would love to try the trails out again.  I haven't ridden down there since the DINO race last year and was wondering how the trail holds up with this rain we've been getting.  Looks like things where in good shape yesterday but not sure how much rain the trails received today.  Barring any overnight rain do any locals have an educated guess as to tomorrow's conditions?  Thanks in advance.

Barring any downpours tonight, trails might be yellow (best educated guess) tomorrow afternoon. If it is too wet ,bail out. Please report any downed trees to the pro shop or here.

You can check the rainfall in the area at this link: http://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=KINSHOAL2

Metrology has nothing to do with  weather.

Rode tonight and there is a tree 10" across trail on the green downhill just before the first hair pin . This is a fast part of the trail. Placed paper towel on limb to signal . Cleared the rest of the trail. Notified resort staff to clear.

Thank you so much for the heads up (literally) and for notifying the staff with location of the tree.
I really appreciate it.

Removed several small trees - limbs from trail tonight.  All cleared and dry except for a couple wet spots on blue

What's the word on trail conditions? Assuming the weather is good today and tomorrow, will they be rideable by Thursday? Thanks!

Trails should be good. Nice with a good wind all day. Yellow now should be green by mid morning on Wednesday.

Sure..you park in the Golf
Pro shop lot where you go inside and grab a map and sign out.
From there you follow the sign on the gravel to the practice driving range and across bridge and down the gravel section and cross street to the TH.
Big sign and should be a excellent day on the trails.
Enjoy!
PS
inside the pro shop they have showers as well if needed after your ride:)
