I did a full lap this AM on fat. 60-70% is awesome, the rest (along the golf course and beyond) needs more traffic.
Still too deep/loose to attempt with skinnies.

Did a lap this afternoon. Some snowshoe and foot traffic. Last night’s snow covered any existing bike tracks. Some good drifts at the end. Soft, somewhat deep conditions best done on a fat bike.

I tried a bit late yesterday, but only ducked into a few short sections. Spent most of the ride on the paved path. The last section wasn’t too bad due to the snowshoe activity.

Milford was not fun this evening. Hikers tore it up in lots of the sections I rode. Some snowshoe traffic helped in spots, but it was pretty bad overall. Too bad; it would have been pretty good without the foot traffic.

So far, so bad for me out there this winter. I’m 0 for 4.

Rumor has it the trail is dry and ready to ride! Can anyone confirm?

I also heard there were some changes made over the winter break.......

I rode it yesterday. 98% perfect imo. There were 3-4 small wet spots in the first 1-2 miles. Rest was completely dry and fast. I didn't notice any changes though. Did I miss something?

98% great after the rains. 1% mud. 1% 6 inches of standing water in the low area west of the YMCA (where the berms are ). I’d skip that area if you can.
