Tried out the lower lot this morning. I would recommend staying away for a couple more days of dry weather so the trails don't get damaged more. I went out of the parking lot down to the purple loop by the creek. Quite a few muddy spots. Whoever went before me, probably last night, did a good job of going right through the wet spots, but even with that (and I did the same) it was bad enough to stay away. I bailed after climbing about halfway up the hill after leaving the creek because it wasn't getting any better. I didn't want to do any more damage. The one dry spot was the yellow trail to the slalom orange. At the top of the yellow I tried out the bridges, but the trails between them need more time, too. If you're in for a short ride, or multiple loops of the same thing, do the upper entrance out of the lot to the yellow climb, then take the orange slalom down. Repeat.

Wow! an actual trail update! I rode a lot of areas today and the trails were in great shape except Mirkwood. A pack of about 6-7 horses just had gone through there and made a real mess. I'm not trying to put down equestrians here, but all trail users should use a little sense in the impact they may cause whether due to riding in poor conditions or using some trails that just won't hold up to certain activities.
Another thing, that I am reluctantly to bring up is the building of stunts on certain trails. At first, I thought it was really cool to have these features and still do. However, they seem to be getting rebuilt bigger every week or two. This may have a negative impact on our presence in the park. Just my opinion.

Rode last nite and trails on west side were great. There was evidence of a horse recently but easy enough to navigate around the droppings.
Unfortunately, I was not so lucky to avoid some dog droppings :(
Other than that there is a tree down just north of the foundation on the wide trail (between 23 & 27).
Still, great conditions!

Some of the best May conditions in years! Some wet sections still from seeps, mostly upper mirkwood (the yellow trail across the creek from Mirkwood) and trails near the pipeline.

Big T-storm last night in EA. Radar says Hunters got it too. Ground was still wet this morning in my yard. Maybe give it a couple of days to re-dry.
