No, reports are that the trail's too soft.

There's an MCMBA chapter meeting tonight at Baker's in Milford as an alternative ;-)

cleared the downed trees people were rerouting around.

loops west of the creek are pretty chewed up - avoid if the ground isn't hard frozen.

The warm weather melted the mud and it was too soft, we left.

Inch of packed snow with ice underneath. Either ride with acute awareness or bring studs. I did the latter and had no issues where others spun out or dropped.

Yes it is cold. Other than that, you have to be the reporter tonight, since there really is no more professional reporting anymore, just opinion... :)

Beer and inside is the mode for tonight!

Here is my report! Alain was kind enough to snow shoe some of the trail and then he paved the way for us as well. We made it to mile marker 6. There was absolutely no tracks going that way. You should be able to get 6 miles in + the green going back which looks like has had a lot of traffic.

Ride while frozen in the AM. Studs recommended. Lots of ice. Perfect conditions!
