Did anyone ride in Ringwood today? Is it still covered up with snow like the picture above? I was planning on riding Ringwood yesterday morning but when I checked on the board I saw jkmacman posted ringwood trail photo, I decided to go back to bed. I was thingking of just hitting all the fire road in ringwood either tomorrow or Monday just to get my mileage. I would appreciate any Ringwood trail condition report as of today. Thanks!
With that much white stuff on the ground (granted, that shot's from nearly a week ago) and 60 degree temps and showers predicted for tomorrow, maybe by mid to late week, if we get no further rain, RW will be ridable.
If you just want to noodle along on the fireroads however you can't do much harm, I'd say go ahead.
I've ridden parts of the racecourse when they were snow covered in the past and it wasn't much fun.
I rode Ringwood today from lot C - new trails to race course to Piersons and back via Schoolhouse. All in all in pretty good shape. 98% snow free and mostly solid, with only a couple small sections of softer trail that were easily walked to avoid damage.
I came across two big trees blocking the trail that will need a chainsaw to clear - first was at the bottom of the race course single track right before it comes into the fire road by Shepard's lake. The other was up on Piersons about a half mile from the turnoff off the fireroad climb.
