The trails are absolutely trashed. About as bad as it can possibly get. Looks like 500 people showed up yesterday to see if that would help the trails.:cry:
I know other states have signs to prohibit trail use in their parks when wet. Does Allaire have a sign up warning people they will damage the trails riding under certain conditions?

We are also going to construct a sniper tower for me as well.
I drove past the lot at 8:30 am and the lot was 1/3 full and I was hopeful, when I drove past at noon the lot was packed. So much for our trail condition reports of soupy...all it means is that people brought crackers.
Does Allaire have a sign up warning people they will damage the trails riding under certain conditions? Everyone isn't an mtbnj lurker and therefore, not well informed. Maybe something to consider when just about 100+ riders show up on any given sat or sun.
Allaire probably would not put a sign trying to keep people off the trails but could we see if they wouldnt mind ATUG putting up a sign educating fellow MTB'S. I doubt someone would put their bike back in the car so as not to cause rutting after they have already driven there, but maybe they would think twice before coming out in the soup again.
Its suprising how many MTB's don't know of this site or any riding etiquette/responsibility.
Good point Iggy but it will fall into the Signage policy the park has. But it sure couldn't hurt to ask again. On my list of "to do's".
I wonder when/if it will be stable enough to ride anytime soon. I was hoping for a few dry days and maybe a nice ride on Wednesday, in the 60 degree heat, but with the forecast calling for rain tomorrow night, who the hell knows.
