Was up to third switchback tonight, not a lick of snow in sight. Ladies and pipeline should be clear.

Is Executioner on the wet weather-approved trails list?

There's nothing better than an Orangina after cheating death with Digger.

Is there really a "wet weather list"? Isn't it more of a commen sense thing? No rain for a couple of days….well built trails with good drainage….being more careful not to skid…I have found it worse some days in July!

Pretty much, yes, but MTB Trails has also generated a list in both print and digital versions. Free plug over.

I assume that trails with more rock armouring and good draining will be better choices. I only asked because Executioner doesn't really seem like a good winter choice if it's not frozen?

It's in the book and the app. I did post this information on a thread somewhere in nsmb.com

We had executioner as not good to ride in the rain since it gets so much traffic it would be nice to give it a rest when its really wet. Really, as has been mentioned, the older and armoured trails are the best to ride when its so saturated like right now.

Unfortunately the original thread starter deleted the thread with that info.

Any chance of reposting the info in the specific mtn condition threads?

So, rode Grannies today…. I think this trail is probably the best all mountain line on the mountain, but it does need some work. Not tons of work, mostly just filling in rough root sections and making some parts more passable. I like the fact that it's been taken over by the loam. For everyone who is complaining about dumbing stuff down, here's your classic shore trail

It's been adopted by TAP, but I can't recall there being a trail day on it, and it doesn't look like there's been any work done on it in years. I would assume that Digger probably has the permit?

Anyone know more about it?
