    Cool. I slept in. Sounds like a good miss on my part.

    Any updates on trail conditions? I'd love to make a trip here, don't want to muck up the trails though!

    I was there yesterday on a fat bike in the AM, it was messy and some trails had snow cover still. With the melting that occurred later a place more south may be a better choice.

    Sunday morning 4/2 was great and was my first time there. A few little mud spots but overall good riding!

    Overall trails good with some muddy areas in the low lying areas.

    I haven't been here in a while but lots of trees down.

    Also the main entrance off Mendham Rd. is closed so if you want to drive to the Sunrise lot you need to access via Sugarloaf Rd.

    Rode Saturday late afternoon. Totally good to go! Just a few puddles here and there but overall great.

    Also: a number of big trees down blocking the orange trail on the uphill from green (i.e. the tight switchbacks).

    @Santapez and i went riding there yesterday... conditions are nice and dry in there...

    few notes:
    * we came thru jockey hollow area entrance but it looks like the main entrance is still closed.
    * still some large trees blocking trails (sounds like same trees that have been mentioned a few times now)
    * also looks like they filled in the washed out area on the fire road/yellow trail. some trees look to be cut down in that area too (assuming to get equipment in there since there were some large tire tracks)... anyone know details?

    Haven't been there in a while. Thanks for the 411. I'll check it out and report the blow downs.

    I'm a little bummed they filled in that washout. It was a good technical trying to up the narrow left hand side!

    Went back today and it looks like someone cut a few logs blocking trails but not that really big one on the switchbacks.
