either here on nsmb (shore or trail maintenance forums) or on the nsmba's website under trails:
I've been riding all summer and I honestly didn't know the nsmb forums existed until this past Monday. I wasn't sure how often/reliably trail closure notices like this are posted here. I guess I will have to add this to my list of forums to check regularly.
And I often checked the NSMBA main page, but they don't seem to post much minor news there. And unfortunately the "trails" section just links to the TrailForks website info which is pretty hit or miss at the moment (I.e. this Forever After closure was not updated on TrailForks as far as I can tell).
The NSMBA Facebook page is actually a really good place to get recent updates.
This was a bit of a hand on forehead moment for me. I get almost all my ski resort info from the resort's Facebook pages… but I never thought to check and see if the NSMBA had a Facebook page. I've "liked" it now, so can keep an eye on it.
fair question. slow down and read the signs?
I did word my question stupidly. What I am really looking for is a reliable place to find out about trail closures before I leave my apartment in the morning. So I do not plan a bike ride [HTML_REMOVED] invite everyone out only to find the "objective" trail is closed (it's a problem if the blue trail is closed and not everyone that was invited can switch to a black trail next door, etc.)
Although I'll admit I have a bad habit of not reading the signs at night, especially if I'm the last in the group to arrive and we're all heading out. I had read your suggestion this morning, so I made a point of stopping to read the Fromme board tonight on my way past.
Thanks all for the suggestions (and the kitty pictures). I had hoped there would be one easy place to find all the info all the time, but I guess I'll keep an eye on the above places.
