    Water on Rover's run

    Last night i was on Rover, the water was as bad as i have ever seen it. It was backed up in the clearing where the pipe line cross the creek and then flowing down the trail. You can go in the trees to get around it but not alot of fun.

    It seems like there is a lot of water/overflow around FNBP right now. Other spots I've found:

    - The Tour Trail bridge closest to Tudor has a lot of overflow around it.
    - Connector trail between the Campbell Creek bridge and S.Bivouac lot
    - Bog area on Moose ridge loop isn't frozen yet.
    - Tank trail

    The light snowfall yesterday made a lot of ice patches very difficult to see, so be careful out there.

    Wolverine bowl trail before the Basher ridge turnoff, very bad too.

    We were up on Brown Bear and saw headlights down on rovers. Actually heard someone say "ahhh, what the hell is this?" and some other expletives.

    Yeah, coming up from the lower end of Rovers the first overflow you encounter was about 3" of flowing water across the trail. Saw it during the day, but it could definitely catch someone off guard in the dark.

    A trail fairy was out with loppers yesterday. You can now get around the ice without pushing through the devils club. Not totally rideable but an improvement. Still have to jump some wet spots but they will freeze.

    Elffy, were there still lots of trees down on wolverine bowl and the cabin john trail connector to Basher Dr?
    Mirkwood is riding nicely... UnAvailable Endo did a snow shoe loop off of Mirkwood proper. A.K.A Moose Ridge.. Go check it out.. It's still a little soft. The more traffic the better..
    How was skiing last week?

    Cheers!!!

    Decent skiing, but nothing great. Good to be up in the mountains. No trees down on the Basher connector to Wolverine Bowl, and the flooding down below is frozen now. I'll go get lost on the north bivouac trails tonight. Thanks Endo.

    Thanks man.. There were lots of trees down on both that connector and Wolverine proper a couple of weeks ago. I am glad some one took the time to clear them out. That's a great ride...
    Hoping for more snow.. Cover up all the overflow and start skiing..
    Have a good holiday..

    It would seem the overflow is back again.
    Would rather be out riding!

    It's not just about a bike

    Where'd the trail go?
