Still some soft spots and lots of ruts. I chose not to ride. Should be good soon, no rain in the near future.

I rode a bit earlier and found the conditions excellent other than the ridiculous ruts in several spots. I went out before it got over 32, so I assume it was still frozen (may not be rideable later in the day?) I’m sure the people that leave the ruts don’t look at trail conditions reports, for some reason I assume fat bike owners are more in tune with trail conditions, but even fat bikes were leaving huge ruts.

Great trail conditions today and thanks to everyone for continuing to post updates on the fantastico MMBA site rather than Facebook. Never had an account there with no plans to get one as I get all the information I need from MMBA!

The trail conditions were surprisingly bad this morning. I assume it was the thawing and freezing cycle, as the low spots weren’t that muddy. Be careful if you ride today, I assume it will get worse.

The DNR reminds us to maintain Social Distancing protocols when using state parks and rec areas or risk having them shut down.

I’m planning to ride this afternoon and I will maintain my distance! Definitely don’t want to loose the only outdoor outlet I have with boating and golfing outlawed.

The trail was good yesterday, normal 5 or 6 spots of mud after some rain. Lot's of walkers and bikers. I would prefer people be a bit more minful of staying apart, but overall a great ride and very good conditions.

Trail was outstanding on Sat 4/11 despite numerous wrong way hikers and two wrong way riders basically disoriented / lost due to winter loop split. park is packed more than I have ever seen it with hikers, bikers, dog walkers, etc.

I was out today and the trail was excellent. Lots of riders, walkers, wrong way for both in some cases. Very strange, two riders on what appeared to be gravel bikes were riding fast, pushing to pass and I could see where they were skidding to make turns, really hammering once by me. To each tier own, but hard to properly distance riding that way, with that many people on the trail. Ride early if you need to set KOMs for the next month.

I would completely avoid maybury and poto at all costs right now. Both trails are full of hikers, wrong way hikers, noobs on 80s mtbs, and dogs off of leashes. It's not even fun to ride at both places right now admittedly.
