I got in a little ride yesterday. Lakeview was firm except for the usual spots so I avoided those, no major trees down but lots of debris. I stayed off Riverview, I figured it would be slick.

"*beep* I'm good" :)

Yes east side was excellent this afternoon, but was getting soft on west side so turned around.

A little too soft / greasy. I tried several sections but had to bail. It's close though, might be ok tomorrow

You don't hear that very often.

I'm surprised, I might take a ride down there just to check it out. Still nursing a bad thumb so if the trail is too wet to ride no big deal. A road ride would be good for me now.

The east end of Lakeview wasn't bad yesterday, I bailed on to the road as I got closer to the west end.
Raining now and it probably won't be good for a couple days.

Often when I ride Hines I smell this familiar aroma I recall from HS and college days... :)

I know the smell, I thought it was from incinerators, if we're thinking the of the same smell.

I often smell that smell on the Hines singletrack --especially by Eckles Rd where it dead-ends.

Thinking of heading out tomorrow afternoon. Think it'll be good to go? What about the newer section near 275?

I'd give it a go tomorrow. Can always start at the Yacht Club and turn around if it gets mucky, but I bet it's ok.

Quite a bit of logging going on near the power lines on riverview. Major trees taken down. Private company to come in to take the logs after power company crew is done. Private company to build park benches in area to pay for wood. Tracked vehicle did some damage to trail...not much. Trail in decent condition despite rain. Tacky in most spots. Very muddy in low spots. Someone also dumped straw and manure? on trail near Levan.
