nobody rides the front of the park anymore, all the good stuff is across the stream. From looking at your Strava map, you parked in the front lot, all the good stuff is in the back (which you missed all of). Most of the regulars don't ride the front side to much. Let me knwo if you want a tour.

CCC was perfect yesterday, just about completely drained. Ceres should be ok by late afternoon. Can't wait to ride the new and improved Sugartaps.

conditions are very hazardous right now. The county ripped out all the bridges and did significant damage to a few trails with their heavy equipment. Most if not all the TTFs have been removed or disabled. And our friendly saboteurs are back too, logs have been dragged onto trails and turnpikes have been dismantled. Ceres is hurting right now and needs some love. Be careful if you go for a ride.

any word on when we can get back in there and work?
No word on when we can do anything. There's a ton of half removed TTFs back there, cut bridges, destroyed turnpikes, etc. Most of the skinnies and other TTFs have been removed or dismantled. This was not all done by the County, there's been a saboteur(s) back there jacking stuff up for awhile now. Kids or other trail users who knows. The leadership group is working with both the township and county to try and allow us to fix things. As of right now, we arent skliwed to touch anything. But don't hold your breath thinking any TTFs are coming back to Ceres anytime soon.

Anyone been out here lately? South Jersey get a lot of rain last night? Thinking about heading down Saturday. Thanks.
Rode there last night. Not sure if you've been following along with all the drama. Basically the county deemed the park "unimproved" status and removed all built structures except the large lower roller coaster bridge. Vandals have been ripping up turnpikes and trying to block trails. The trails are all rideable just as not as well manicured as they used to be when we allowed to do TM but still alot if fun.

Glad to hear that you got to ride the trails at Ceres. Rode there yesterday in the afternoon and as Mike stated, the trails are still rideable. When I arrived 2 other riders were returning to the lot and said they had just spent some time moving limbs and branches that were purposely placed across the trails. So be aware when riding there.

@Scottkw34 Just reading your message now. Things have kinda gone silent over on FB. Trails are in great shape. A few re-routes because there's still trees down from the storm back in June. Heading there now.

Such a fun place, good to hear trails are still alive. Thanks for the update JDurk. I'll ask the same question again in about a year or so. ;) Heading down Saturday.
