I took a hike at ILRA on Sunday and counted over 20 mountain bikers. Still lots of muddy spots.

I rode Sunday afternoon. The only significantly soft area was yellow hill climb after the bridge and I just jumped off and walked around. I came home with a clean bike. Now is probably different after the snow.

Oh and zombie walkers all made space, but I wish they'd walk opposite to see us. Most were walking same direction.

Yeah, hiking is best done against bike traffic but unless you hike the entire loop you'll be hiking in same direction one way or another. They have widened that path that runs alongside the railroad tracks leading up to the mall and another that cuts into the woods in sort of a horseshoe shape. Both are good spots to avoid the bike traffic.

I'm anxious to get the bike out but I'm a wimp when it comes to cold temps

Poto and Maybury are basically unrideable right now due to zombies. Maybury has separate hiking trails there too...which is why I can't comprehend why they are standing in the middle of the downhills there.

It's because the hiking trails are packed...overflow traffic! Not to mention there are probably some non-usual visitors that probably don't know any better.

I have ridden Maybury most days and only seen an occasional walker or inexperienced biker. I ty and be friendly and mention the in place processes for hiking (against flow) and riding (one way). It is brief and well distanced, probably innefective. Other than a trail runner who stared me down and did not want to yield, it has been conflict free. I would suggest earlier or later in the day to avoid the people that are just stir crazy and walk around mid-day.
