    There is also a small, dirt parking lot on Gilbride east of the concrete bridge and north of the road. There you are across the street from the Yellow trailhead and just west on the other side of the Gilbride concrete bridge is an Orange trailhead.

    Yeah surprisingly 90% of the remaining mud is on yellow about a 1/3 down from the top.

    It's raining now but hit me up sometime. Maybe we could pull off a dawn patrol on a Saturday. I've got this place pretty clocked.

    thoughts on ridability tomorrow morning? So long as it doesn't rain any further I'm thinking reds and blues will be fine. Thanks
    @Kirt ?

    With today's rain, LM might be a better option.

    I'm about 10 mins from CR and we got a ton of rain last night, I'm inclined to say no
    If I can get a bike going, I might give it a spin tomorrow AM and report back

    Not positive but I can't imagine it being bad. Might be a bit wet and slick but I'd go for it. Better that LM. :)

    On the white trail next to the water hole that used to be a mine. You may smell ol lunchy munchy before ya see him.
    Only did blue, white and red today. Saving my legs for Thorpe. It was dawn patrol so i beat the real rain. It was damp where usually dry and wet where usuallydamp. Blue is a shit show in the lower areas. I think if it doesn't get too many tires today it'll tighten up pretty quick. Everything is growing and that's the key.
    Hugs and kisses.
    Hi Kirt!

    Rode CR yesterday. Outer Blue and inner Blue were pretty good, didn't even think of riding lower Blue. Rode Middle Red, usual wet areas were wet, and a couple more areas, but not bad. On to Orange, only wet area was the usual spot at very top from guardrail climb, but that's so rocky there's no mud. Didn't do Buttermilk and switchback climb, but the old way down to Gilbride was fine. Rode Yellow up to 4-way, rain started to fall so we decided to turn around and head back. White had it's usual wet areas but it wasn't bad either. Rain stopped and rode big Red, and it was fine. Got a decent amount of soaking rain yesterday so I bagged today's ride.

    I rode red and blue this morning and it was really good. Great weather, Mostly tacky dirt, but yes still some muddy areas to be treated gently. Avoided both lower sections, assume those are in bad shape.
