We walked the first half of the trail on Sunday evening. It's no good for riding right now. Someone had a terrible looking time riding it earlier that day though.

Rode it this evening. I would say the trail is good to go. However it is not perfect. It is still slick or tacky in quite few areas but my 2.2 tires did not leave any ruts. There is one broken tree blocking the trail. I would say mile 1.5. It was good to be back.

Reports are no. Quite bad.

Rode Fri during lunch. Trees down on both “Double Trouble”options require dismount and will need chainsaw. Otherwise, few face slappers and damp in few spots but no puddles. Few more days of dry weather and should be golden.

Rode early PM today. Only a few moist areas; no mud per se. Trees were cleared.

Rode early afternoon and trail was perfect. Bought my yearly pass and looking forward to many more rides here this season.

Just rode Addy, 7-8 trees are down but it’s not muddy. Pauley is hard at work with the chainsaw already!

Rode yesterday - there is a large brush/thicket across the trail a little before the 4 mile marker. There is also one tree that will need a chainsaw around the 4.5 mile area.

Agree with previous post. Other than the few trees down the trail and weather today was perfect.

Beware of killer cranes on the trail with their babies. lol

The babies didn't know to leave the trail and the parents were just getting more and more agitated. lol

Gorgeous birds.

I was out in the area for a barbecue at my brother-in-law's house and decided to try Addison Oaks before the barbecue. I was there about 4 p.m. I turned back shortly after leaving the trailhead as the trail is too muddy to ride. I decided to ride the asphalt and the crushed limestone connector Trail to the east side of the park which was a very nice ride. It's going to take a little bit to dry out the trail.

Trail was absolutely perfect today. I see that Pauly has been putting down gravel in some previous wet spots. Thanks Pauly.

Fast, with a few face-slappers this morning.
BTW Cranberry lake trails have dried up a lot. We got thru to Predmore without much trouble.
