    April 5 - Trail conditions report

    Lots of soft dirt out there. Please report actual trail conditions. The last rain was about a quarter inch in the low lands at around 4 am last Thursday.

    Just got back from Pleasanton Ridge. Condition is good there. A couple of small wet spot here and there but that's it.
    Went down Bay Leaf single track to sinbad creek and then up Shady creek. Creeks are running really low and easy to cross.

    Gap was a slop fest early this morning. Probably better now, but it was wet.

    Hoping that Santa Teresa County Park trails are open, seeing as it rained the other day. Doesn’t take much (deer pissing too much, crying coyotes, bobcats drooling too much) to close them.

    Rode STCP this afternoon. Trails are both dry and open

    I rode in Auburn today.

    South side of Foresthill Divide was perfect. Some standing water in the usual spots (that stay wet for long periods of time). The tree branches were really wet, weighed down and hanging over the trail. Got soaked by a couple. The climb at Drivers Flat Rd. was a little wet. The north side of the trail, as usual was slower to dry. In the oak section between the first two descents there's a huge branch of tree down blocking the trail. The bulk of the wet that I found was on the "big" descent to Clementine Rd. Not too bad, really.

    Connector ... eh. The roller coaster section from the Divide Loop side to the look out had standing water in the apex of pretty much every turn. After the lookout it was pretty dry, with a little water on the climb after the bridge in the usual spots (at the rock runoff, etc). Otherwise it was good to go.

    Should be nice on Sunday.

    Rockville

    Rockville was nice and tacky today. Muddy at the very top of the main trail up by the restrooms. Couple of spots of standing water but should be great for as long as the rain holds off.

    I drove up to Skeggs this morning but it was wet, cold and somewhat miserable so I headed to Arastradero instead and the dirt there was perfect and no spit rain... Yes, I'm getting soft in my old age.

    Ouch, Arastadero is boooring.

    I was contemplating trying Skeggs tomorrow, but it sounds like that won't work. Maybe Waterdog will be dry...

    +1, a buddy and I did the same, got there and called it. After all the nice weather we've had I wasn't feeling it, it was dripping with heavy mist and fog rain and cold. It would have been a first day out on a brand new bike and I just couldn't bring myself to doing that to the bike first time out...

    UCSC is no bueno as of 4/6. Lots of low spots and standing water. I figured it'd be more dried out than it was.

    Not that anybody cares, but the spots that get unrideable in Tilden/Wildcat when it's wet, were unridable Saturday Afternoon.

    Just got back from Briones. No more dust, no mud except on trails that get zero sun and do not drain well, basically great trail conditions except the cows and horses have gone all over the place so many trails need fixing up. Nice 90 minutes regardless...

    China Camp in great condition, MCBC Gnomes were out encouraging the new contribution of funds "in case the ranger runs across you". Our group did, but still not super kosher w/ the whole "oh we had 45mil stashed, we have to close parks" crud.

    I'm going back out tomorrow also. One day made a huge difference earlier last week and I'm guessing in should be decent tomorrow. Still wet in some spots but not out right gooey like it was Friday afternoon.
    Painted indoors all day today and now I'm suffering aches and pains I never felt before.

    Gap is still sloppy. Tons of 2 wheel drifting around corners in the loose mud. Fun but dirty.

    Skeggs was very messy. You would think it got 3 inches of rain with all the standing puddles and muck. Fire roads are ok, single tracks not so much. Probably will need till mid week before it's "prime". Stay away tomorrow unless you want to spend 20 minutes demucking post ride.
