Perfect as of yesterday afternoon. Not wet and not dry and dusty, just fast!

Conditions were excellent last night (Tuesday), with only some minor soft spots and no puddles.

Conditions were perfect when we rode here but left around 3:30 and looked like rain was coming so not sure if it did in fact rain.

Booth at entrance was hit by a truck today and had to be removed. Park employee at entrance said they weren't charging anymore but I didn't know if he just meant for the day or rest of year. Does anyone know ?

Rode this morning. Few greasy spots and mud puddles throughout but nothing major. Several trees down and lots of branches/limbs on trail. These are the trees I remember; locations are approx.
~ 0.25mile after official trailhead; requires chainsaw
~ 0.1 miles after 1st bridge crossing; requires chainsaw
~ 0.1 miles after the 12.5mile entrance; big mess - requires chainsaw(s)
~ 0.1 mile before the official finish- up on top of the hill just before the last switchback
There were a couple others but they could be hopped over.

Over the next few weeks, we'll be replacing the 754 bridge. Watch FB for opportunities to help and info about short term trail impacts.

If you'd like to help by tagging a plank, see http://site.mcmba.org/index.php/266-mak ... n-the-park

Bridge heading to the prairie section is under construction and completely out of commission at the moment. (Thanks for all the hard work on the new build guys!)

Other than that, the trail is leafy but in great shape.
