Thanks for the suggestion 2WheeledWarrior. I hadn't thought about Bass Creek, but that is a great idea!

Cannonsburg SGA is hard on the body, I don't care who you are it's not the smoothest trail around. So I wouldn't tell anyone that it's an easy trail. It seems like everytime I go out, there is something new that pops out of the ground and gets you sideways. But this is one of the reasons I like it so much.

Most of Luton park is nice and smooth, even the red loop. But if your not in shape or up for a challenge it could be a turn off to new riders. Blue is great for newbies and the green too.

Has anyone ridden at C-SGA since the weekend/Monday rains? If so, is it real muddy? (Not sure how much rain GR got, but we got lots along the lakeshore).

I would recommend staying away from the Game Area for another day or two. Ski Hill is great though!

I got a ride in this evening, finishing just as the rain arrived. The trail is in good shape, save for a couple of mud pits that are seriously forked up.

There are at least 2 if not 3 distinct sections of the trail that haven't drained from the recent rains.

Went out there yesterday and theres quite a bit of horse sh** out there. I doubt they are staying off the trails, every section had crap on it.

Other than that the armored rock section at the end of a decent looks friggen sweet! I can't wait to ride it.

I was out there yesterday and can confirm there were four horses on the trail ridden by four women.

They were very nice and got off the trail when bikes went by, but they did leave the crap behind in the middle of the trail. I also noticed some damage along softer parts of the trail and hills.

They must have entered off of the first road crossing, and then I saw them again right before the parking lot.

I couldn't remember if horses were allowed on the trail or I would have said something. Next time.

I rode past them while they were on the 5 mile road. Sucks that they had to turn on to the trail. I should have said something assuming they were going to the trail. Four horses can be pretty rough.

horses are NOT allowed there. (I have been told) I hope the damage they caused isn't too bad.

I know there have been signs posted in the past that mysteriously disappeared.

If it would have been me, I probably would have politely informed them about the DNR's rule and then taken thier picture if I had a camera.

It is possible that they did not know horses are not allowed on the trail. Everyone deserves the benefit of doubt at least once.
