You can park on Hines at 275 or in the Yacht Club parking lot. Both sections are equally technical but lakeview, which starts at the I 275 end, is a little longer. The trail can't get much better than it is now.

If you haven't made it here yet I'm probably riding here this afternoon if you want a tour

A little rain is exactly what this trail needs. It will be perfect tonight about 6:00 if the rain ends about 2:00.

Friday evening I took a ride on Lakeview and Riverview and caught a pedal on a little stump, low light at the time. Endo'd spectacularly and the bike landed on my face.

The Yacht Club is cool with letting people park there to ride the trails? If I go later in the afternoon, I skip most of Lakeview because of the walkers. It'd be cool to park closer to Riverview for sure.

I'm not sure they know people are parking there for that reason. There's plenty of room, it's a big lot. You can park anywhere near AA rd and Newburgh or off Hines at Levan if you want to get closer to Riverview.

The Yacht Club doesn't own/control the west end of that parking lot. At least that's what one of the bartenders told me when I asked to park a car for sale in their lot. Not sure who does. Might be park property. You can see a seam in the pavement where I'm guessing the Yacht Club property ends.

Both trails are dry and awesome. Last night the traction was remarkable even on the leaves.
I started out being cautious but after a few corners leaning the bike in early worked like i was on damp packed dirt

So fun!!

Rode after dark last night. No mud to speak of but would like to give kudos to those who put the gravel/limestone on the wet spots in Riverview. Those were the only places where recent rains created a concern. Looks like that's over, awesome! This trail is ridable in the afternoon of a rainy day morning.

if you find an old beat-up opaque camelbak water bottle probably near east end of Riverview (where I crashed) it's mine! It was my favorite because it stayed in the water cage... until yesterday. :) I hope to get out there tomorrow to look for it.

I'm hoping it's dry enough for a ride tonight. If anyone's been out today post up the condition.
