    BCT Russian Well Segment current conditions?

    I'm heading to Prescott this afternoon and was thinking of riding the BCT Russian Well segment on my way. Dale's map says it's overgrown with catclaw, which would surely drive me away, but I was wondering if conditions had improved lately. Anyone ridden it recently?

    I don't think the catclaw is too bad but that section of trail gets more hoofs than tires on it and can be pretty bumpy. I rode it a couple months ago and there are a few sections that are pretty post holed.

    Thanks Ray. How about heading south from there onto the Big Bug and Drinking Snake segments? Same story?

    If it is, I think I will just hit the spectacular, but short, Constellation Trails in Prescott.

    Basically, from Russian Well itself, it's all jeep road going north...some rocky, some pretty smooth. Going south all the way to Hwy 69, there are several short sections that are pretty banged up, probably the worst is right before Old Sycamore road. South of Hwy 69, there are also a few sections that are pretty banged up before you descent down into Antelope Canyon.
    Given the heat, I'd say hit Prescott...
