Amazingly good considering it is January. No standing water, very little mud, no blow down. There is some flowing water down the trail in the usual spot, above the meadow.

Shite conditions on our regular Tuesday night ride. 3-5 inches of wet heavy slush/snow/mud depending on tree coverage. Tons of branches down even some trees with the weight of the wet snow. Might try and get in there soon to do some cleanup. Gonna be a muck fest in there for awhile.

Some bigger logs down in new locations, check the trail before you are hauling.

Lots of branches down too, but most are already moved off the riding line. (Must have been a big windstorm.)

Some muddy spots but didn't see any standing water.

It was that snowfall a few weeks back. Been meaning to get one of us in there with a saw……..

We'll be getting in there soon.

The logs that came down over the winter have now been cleared, the only ones left have been there for a few years.

Trails are nice and dry (other than the usual soft spots) but that should change shortly.

The trails are all in really good shape. Still a bit muddy on the trail that connects over from Bender to the line at the far east of the park.

The only trail I missed was the Drop Trail so I'm not sure how that's looking.

Almost middle of summer dry in there now.

There are a few persistent mud holes that need some drainage work, I'll have to go for a walk with a shovel [HTML_REMOVED] pick in the next while.

Hi

There is a Hornets nest in the log beside the 2 double built up logs on the trail that runs along the trail that runs parallel with 64th ave. Angry little buggers.

Quite a few big trees down due to the high winds the last 2 nights, most will need a chainsaw. Also lots of branches and tree debris, we moved some but not all by any stretch.

Tree debris, branches and small trees have mostly been cleared by the bike traffic and walkers since Thurs. night.

There are at least 4 big trees down that will need a saw.
