Makes me want to ride the ski area instead to avoid the crowd.....

It's super annoying! Ride the trail during the day if you can.

Last night while out riding, I found a pair of black full finger Pearl Izumi gloves that I put on the frame of the kiosk. Hope you get em back!

I don't know how I keep finding things, the last two times I have ridden there I found something. A front wheel with a disc brake was in the parking lot. I rested it up against the kiosk. Hope you find it!

I am hoping to ride there Friday 10/29 late morning for the first time.
Is the normal parking area/trail head on Kies St, or on 10 Mile Rd?

I was out there the day after the storm. I ended up moving a down tree that I could move myself off of the red loop. There was one other that I wouldn't have been able to move I believe it was on the Green Loop. But I am not positive.

I rode the trails at 10am, first time ever. You all really have a nice set of trails here. There was a tree down in the red section, about 8" diameter, but up off the ground, so not something to ride over. Too long for me to move. Maybe somebody else got it by now, per Rick's post above.

I second this, it is really fast right now. Forget the knobbies, throw on some slicks and cruise!

The new trees as well as the other improvements are great .
