    Brushy Peak trail forecast please

    I want to ride there this Saturday morning.
    Can anyone give me a forecast of the trail conditions?
    Does it get gooey/muddy out there?

    It can get pretty sloppy and unrideable after heavy rain. I'm guessing that it will probably be ok by Saturday though.

    Bushy will be dried out and good to go by this weekend. Really bad 2-3 days after a rain.

    I should have time to drive up to the trailhead sometime during the day tomorrow. I will check out the lower sections and post back here.

    there were standing puddles on the shoulder of Laughlin road this afternoon over by Altamont Creek Drive

    Thanks,
    I am meeting someone who is interested in my wagon.
    Hence my other post about which car to buy as a roadtrip vehicle.
    I thought BP would be a nice place to meet and get in a ride too.

    Bring the bike. Soft in spots, but mostly looked rideable. Creek crossings and some of the flat areas will be really sloppy but the rest looked good

    Not a good place when wet!
    1st 1.5mi was deceptively good. Lighter/sandy dirt and usually hard packed as asphalt.
    Trail turned to coastal black clay and we were stopped in our tracks.
    STICKY clay came home with us and we spent 2hrs. cleaning bikes
