    Yeah, but what are you going to do in Paskenta? I thought the problem was the long winding drive up the mountains... in which case a geo still sucks.

    it still doesnt take 3 hours to get there, last time i went it took around 2 and that was going out thru willows on the dirt road in a lowered integra.

    I'd bet Vince from ShamWOW's life on it :D
    I bet the website hasn't changed because b/c no one went to the office today.
    Signs definitely take precedence, I don't think there's enough moisture from today, but the way the valley is constructed (or destructed - depending on how you look at it) from varying porous and impermeable layers, the park will seep for a while. So even if it's sunny, it won't be open for riders.

    Lower park single-track and the upper-park road are open for MTB.

    3-4 days after any significant rain and the park open back up. Just based off the 10-day forecast I would expect the park to be open no later than next Friday or Saturday.

    Website was updated and says the trails are open. Can anyone verify? I'm not in Chico right now

    I would guess they are correct since it's been pretty warm and windy the last 2 days...
    I'll be heading up South Rim, see you on the trails.

    Hmm, up the South Rim sounds good, but I might save that for the weekend and try a larger loop

    dunno for sure...first or middle of next month.

    Gaw Dam, I can't wait to get back to a place where there's stuff to do and where mountain biking is not a crime against the kingdom.
