    Skeggs was very fine midday on Saturday and Tamarancho was perfectly acceptable for two full loops today with it being only a bit mucky at the start of Wagon Wheel after Serpentine and the later coming up Broken Dam, but A-ok, much warmer this afternoon too.

    Resist the temptation to check out the newly reopened Tractor at Demo. Logging road, nasty little water bars, mud bogs, etc - no fun down or up. Braille is in great shape except for the big tree down near the bottom.

    Should have dried out by...

    ...now but some trails at Coe are being kept muddy due to the freezing conditions:

    Auburn, Annadel or Demo conditions?

    Im looking to do a 20+ mile wednesday ride at 1 of the 3 places tomorrow. I just can't decide which one. Any word on conditions.

    annadel had a few muddy spots this weekend, but not bad over all. i went up canyon, up marsh to buick meadow, then down south burma and back down canyon.

    99% of south burma was perfect, just the last 100' or so that was super muddy, and rutted. not sure if its a drainage design issue, or if its the soil type.

    Waterdog was good on Friday except for a few peanut-buttery (but rideable spots) on the outer loop (John Brooks ->Rambler > Finch > Upper Creek > Lower Elevator > Chapparal > John Brooks > Berry > Lake road. With dry conditions this week, it should be primo.

    Just finished riding Waterdog. It was good then it sucked. Lake Loop has a mud bog, Finch Trail and Chaparral are pretty soft in spots.

    It's classic Waterdog as once it gets wet, it takes so long to dry off as many areas get so cold and never see the sun.

    Skyline NAPA. Not so great 1-17-2013

    So I expected Skyline to be very dry as we have only had one rain day in the last 2 weeks. Unfortunately, that place is so North facing that it just will not dry. The trails are getting pounded by bikes, and the 16 inch single track is 3 feet wide as people try to bypass the muddy sections. Kind of sad looking, and I hope the grass grows back on the edges. Some of the S turns are being straightlined too, and that is just wrong. Trail Abusers! Sorry Napa locals, I probably will stop riding until spring up there.

    Demo/SDF (mostly) perfect 01-18-2013

    Rode Demo today, Buzzards-Cossacks-Ridge-Sawpit. Other than mud in the usual spots on Cossacks, conditions were spectacular (and real). No mud, no moisture on the wood, no dust. Perfect!

    Anybody ridden Skeggs lately? It's been a while for but don't want to return yet if it's gonna cause damage.

    Thanks!

    Gap was good (and finally open) early yesterday morning. Some frozen mud on Peters Creek... But not too bad.

    Skeggs was amazing this afternoon... Except for Mid Pen. No other cars out there with bike racks this afternoon. I didn't see anyone else out on the trails the entire time I was there... except for 1 ranger hanging out with his radar gun on the lead up to Blue Blossom waiting to pull me over. Weak sauce. Dirt was great though. Still a huge tree down on BB. The tree on Methuselah got cleared out though.

    Hoping Demo is good tomorrow.

    Skeggs was good yesterday. THe only mud I encountered was on Fir (and it's a fire road so no big deal).

    Frickn Waterdog. It will be the last to dry. The reason is it does not get direct sun at all. In the last couple of weeks, everything was frozen. So now that the ice has melted, the water is just mixing it up with the saturated soil.

    It is rideable if you don't go to Lake Loop. But really every other trail in the Bay Area will be in better shape.
