Anyone been to Wayway recently? Current conditions?:hmmm:
I just spoke with a ranger and the park is still closed. The campsites are still closed and there is standing water (small ponds) on the trails. They told me to call later in the week for an updated status.Anyone been here lately at all? I was thinking about taking a ride this thrusday , i dont mind some mud or whatever , i do have a mountain bike right Ive never been on here so looking to explore.
Last week it was Pines was clear, looked like the pipe was already past splitrock.^^ can you get across the pipeline to Pines now (e.g. from Rattlesnake or Tombstone)? I was there a month ago and it was piled too high with dirt. What about at the bottom of Splitrock, can you get across?
Rode the racecourse today, including tombstone to pines and back across to the gas line to the new trail used in the spring cleaning race(no idea what its called, it connects white dot to the gasline trail not the actually gas line) The conditions were good, still some wet spots and the gasline crossing from tombstone to pines is a mess, a huge(15 - 20 high) pile of dirt is right at the exit of tombstome. We climbed over it however that was likely a bad call. You would be better off riding down rattlesnake for a bit and then crossing over the gas line and riding back up to pines. That section is clear and fairly dry. Red dot two bridges is wet but not so bad that you cannot cross. Watch out for the puddle in front of the 2nd bridge if your coming from the cherry ridge side, its way deeper then it appears.any update on the conditions and access south of Cherry Ridge Road?
You can check out my map at http://www.tomhennigan.com/trails/Wawayanda/wawayanda_state_park_trails.html its a kml, but you should be able to convert it to gpx no problem. It's a work in progress so no guarantees.Would love to see a gps map of that stuff just to figure out how that happened.I actually like getting lost on trail rides,doesn't happen much after 20+ years of riding mtb in the jersey/ny area.
Meant right after the second bridge, it is deceptively deep on the right, hub depth on a 26 in rim4. Two bridge is wet, however if you blast thru(coming from cherry) and stay right on the approach to the first bridge, then left after the second its not too bad, if your left on the second its soaked feet, no doubt.
