It was across the entrance for both. Only the easy option to the right was clear.

Me & Sven took a lap today. Almost bone dry and no jungle. Great riding.

Damp this evening but no puddles, no grease.

Tree down after the the first switchback climb, in the middle of the 2nd large climb. Needs a chainsaw. Overall, trail was in great shape today.

Got the tree but there were quite a few puddles and standing water from today's rain. It won't get any better if it rains again tomorrow as predicted. Did not finish the loop.

Unless it rained today, it should be good to go. There were some puddles and slippery corners but mostly ok. There was a tree down somewhere before the 1 mile marker but was easily visible.

Trail was pretty good today from 11am - 230PM. a few greasy spots and a few puddles/low spots that refuse to dry out....Tree down and crossing trail about 4mins in 1/4 mile or so after top 3rd climb. 6-8” diameter crossing trail. Will need chainsaw for 60 seconds. Should leave for skills work I bunny hopped it, others used their big ring to try and cut through it.

Tree is gone. Found.... a 29er wheel/tire somebody left in the parking lot. It's in the Park HQ lost and found. Probably won't be anybody there until Tuesday. Trail has not dried or gotten much wetter. Pretty much same as yesterday.

Trail is extremely muddy today with lots of puddles and soft ground. People who are riding are leaving ruts. I recommend against riding.
Tomorrow from 9am to Noon we will have volunteers on the trail trimming so please watch for them.

And, it's not just the usual wet spots. The whole trail is very wet. I rode the black top today and a couple of hundred feet of the trail east of where it crosses the black top. There were ruts being created there, and that is usually one of the drier sections of the trail!

@chisbang
Didn't see you at the lunch. Wanted to let you know that my group made it from the winter loop junction to the first rescue point after the paved path (SE most part of the trail).

Trail is extremely soft muddy today with more than the usual amount of puddles in spots that don't usually puddle up. Hopefully it will dry out by the weekend.
