I was there 3 times in 6 days, including Sunday. The area before and after the road is a mud pit and deep. It was like that all 3 times. The other problem spots were on the fireroad, closer to the parking lot. Wet and semi-muddy but they are usually like that after any rain.
Can the scouts can use heavy equipment? They are trenched on the lower side. Vegetation and cupping are the issues and even if fixed, it's just a band-aid. It's all fall line from top to bottom. A few grade reversals would slove the problem.
I rode Round Valley out of the railroad lot yesterday, and true to form (and despite the ton of rain we've gotten recently), the conditions were good...except for some mud in the first ~1/4 mile out of the lot (the "flat" area). Round Valley remains a great place to ride after heavy rainfall. I also stopped at the beach by the reservoir, and the view was beautiful.
As an aside, I noticed on my map that I summited Cushatunk Mountain on my way out...done completely without supplemental oxygen, or a sherpa! Of course, I planted the JORBA flag at the summit...
