    Kenny, called the ACoE before you head up there. Not sure the status given the storm that went through last night.

    Had the place to myself Saturday AM. I love those days. Today was a different story, Lots of riders but the trails are in great shape, surprisingly little mud considering the rain we got.

    Yea, it was busy today. Got there around 9:45 and the parking was tough. It was still a bit greasy at that point but it seems to have dried up pretty good.

    Went yesterday morning with a buddy, from 8:30 to about 11:30.

    We were the only ones there. Trails were great, and very dusty, lol.

    This weekend is out for me, but I'm up for early Mon, Weds, or Friday

    next week. LMK if anyone wants to meet up.

    Looking to ride with someone next week in the morning RTR 10AM? Pretty much any morning Tuesday - Friday 10/6 - 10/9. I know the trails well and usually do a 13 mile loop a couple of times.

    Trails were great yesterday,I might go there on Friday again for 3 laps or so,weather permitting.I only get 11.9 miles per loop ,looks like I’m missing something,but I usually skip the first section off the road and just head up through the north gate, the ranger gave me the ok
