Anyone ridden lately? Planning on heading over in a half hour or so.
Yes sorry to have missed this.
Did red to blue to red to purple to ball field on Sunday. Everything was dry minus a few small 3-5’ patches, maybe only 3 of them total, wet spots we tiptoed over. A few people let tracks and plowed through the mud. Please don’t do this as it errodes the trail and the relationship with the land managers.
yup, clockwise. but actually did blue counter clockwise as we missed the trail head and ran up it backwards and made a micro loop. it would be better run clockwise 100%.Saw the same patches last night, and went around. First time I stuck to red but had to hoof it on some of the climbs. Second time around I tried pink, teal and purple which were good. Tried blue, but it was a nasty climb up the rocks.
If I read your description right, did you do it clockwise? I think blue would have been better in that direction. I did it counter clockwise and that might have been my mistake.
Conditions were good this morning, but also replying to @Marshj regarding mud. According to Jorba standards (which prefers one does not ride in mud), riding through the center of a mud spot causes less damage than going around. Going around the mud widens the trail, which you see in a lot of places in the Tourne, unfortunately. Here’s a PDF they’ve created.
