LOST SUNGLASSES ....Saturday September 12

Today I had a bad crash in the 3rd section of the trail south of 4 Mile Rd. After I realized that I broke my left clavicle and started walking out , I realized that I lost my glasses. A couple of riders road past me on my way out before I realized I didnt have my glasses, I went back to look for them , but they were gone.

So if anybody found a pair of Smith Glasses, grey frames yellow lenses, I will buy you lunch as a reward for returning them.

Let me know

Dave

How is the snow level for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing?

There's actually quite a bit of snow still hiding in the woods out there. Might be a bit icy/crunchy for xc skiing. Feel free to go exploring off trail with snowshoes - I did Sunday and had fun.

yep. if it starts to get good snow coverage again, best to leave it be for the skiers. right now though it is too bare for skiing and frozen hard enough to bike on I would imagine. report back and let us know.

I was out there walking today. Saw one set of fresh bike tracks. Few inches still of hard frozen snow/ice base with a dusting of powder on top. Could actually xc ski if you don't mind the bumpy base.

Not up for biking yet. Unless you want to ride frozen snow in the am. At least 6 inches of snow in the woods and packed snow/ice on the trail. Picture taken Monday 3-8. This is at the end of the trail as you are just finishing up.

With the lows being above freezing and rain for the next 4 days I am sure there will be less snow in the woods :!: :!:

Then we need really dry days so we can hit the trails!!!

SGA takes forever to thaw out. I'm guessing the first or second week of April until this trail is ready. You can always ride it before then and they you have the privilege of cleaning your bike for 3 hours.

The recent rain took out a lot of the snow, but there still are snow/ice covered sections on the trail. Mud sections otherwise. I'll try to get an updated picture this weekend for the non-believers :)

I was out looking for the rumored down bridge in the 4th section and its really messy.... please continue to avoid until dry. The BR route should be good and great for getting ready for the race!
BTW anyone know if there is a bridge down somewhere out there? Maybe sec #3? Thanks!

There is a bridge out, it was tough to get across when I was cross country skiing, but it could really be a danger for mountain biking. I only saw it once in the winter, but I believe it is located if you park at the 3 mile trailhead and go in the opposite direction. I could get out there possibly Thursday to verify.
