    Dan Cook on Diablo was fine Tuesday morning. The top was damn cold.

    Yikes! Your Super varies greatly from mine. Rode it today and thought it was too muddy to even be out there, but slogged through a short loop anyway. Bay View, Bay Hill, and Bay Ridge had running water heading down the singletrack. Starting to rut out pretty bad especially at switchbacks. Echo was ok. Shoreline and Oak Ridge were muddy messes. Wont be going back for another week at least. I am a big baby.:)

    Steven's Canyon was OK on New Years Day (Canyon Trail & Bella Vista) and should be much better tomorrow.

    Waterdog today was kinda muddy. I stayed on the normally good parts but it was a bit soft in parts.

    Lower Creek and the Finch Switchbacks were just fine.

    Should be good by Saturday.

    A little harder to get to because of the slide, but Demo was great today.

    Will probably hit Skeggs today.

    Thinking about hitting San Joaquin Miller Cinderella trail on Sat. Hope it's rideable.

    I used to live next to JM. Cinderella dries out very quickly, just a couple of muddy spots a few days after rain.

    Saratoga Gap....anyone know about the gate on LR/Peters?

    All I can get is from the site/calling is 'seasonal closures' but no specifics. I'd hate to drive up there only to find it shut....forcing me to hop the fence. :p

    It is closed brother. Seasonal closed. That means not permanently closed. But is closed right now. If there is a looooong dry spell they may open it. But mark my word, Peters Creek is closed and it is one of the last to open since it gets wet in there.

    Skyline Napa kind of muddy. Not good to ride some singletrack up there. North facing still has ice sections at 1 pm, 5 days after rain. Surprisingly wet. Does not drain well after continuous days of rain (drains really well after 1st few rains).

    Damn it. I was afraid of that. Ok, plan B.

    how's Fremont Older or Steven's Canyon looking? I know most of the seasonal stuff is closed at Mid Pen but I might try to get in a quickie tomorrow AM before the rain.

    Where in briones? Usually the lower sections are a mess all winter.

    Not bad at all, I expected much worse. Usually I have to wait 2 weeks after a rain. I climbed up Alhambra Creek => Spengler => Briones Ridge.

    Friday afternoon Zane after the rock garden section was a mess lots of standing water everywhere; the steep little climb after the dh on enchanted is soft with the kind of mud that cakes your tires, there's tons of trickling water and mud puddles on some of the fireroads (e.g. eucalyptus between old cabin and twin oaks). Most of the fun bits of single track are good though.

    Grant is open and ok. Lots of big ruts.

    Granite Bay is in great shape overall. A couple puddles in the usual spots but ride-arounds for pretty much everything. Although a 1/2" of rain forecast for tonight so after that it could need a few days to dry out again.

    Skegg's is in good shape, that may change with more rain. Very large tree down on BLue Blossom. No real way around it but you can crawl under it and drag the bike behind you.
