does this refer to those trails like Lake Ames downhill, shotgun and all that other stuff? if so, i rode a bunch of it saturday and everything except shotgun was very leafy. That newest trail that cutout the woods road climbs was impossible to follow

Yes. And i think you're referring to Evergreen as the newest trail. These trails are awesome and tend to drain extremely well after rain.
 
Anyone hike or bike here in the past few days? Have an idea what the conditions are like? These trails are always pretty hardy so hoping a few miles this weekend could be in store.

Great frozen conditions this morning - no ice or snow left. Since Shotgun was leaf-blown, it may get squishy in spots after thawing. Saw some frozen ruts. I woulda left the leaves on but not my trail. I cleared a bunch of sticks and derailleur eaters from the recent wind so everything is pretty clear. No trees down that i saw and i hit almost everything.

1" of icy crust this morning. My 2.5s broke thru most of the time but that was preferred bc was the only way to get traction. Had to push harder than normal but was able to ride almost everything on my short ride. The solid spots were interesting, especially when on a turn.

Rode pretty much everything on Telemark side this afternoon. Conditions great but leaf cover was thick in spots and I lost the trail a couple times. There are parts that look like they were raked/blown at some point but they're not consistent. Needs heavy traffic!
