    I'll just leave it as a not so well known trail. But here are some reviews:

    I rode Deer Springs this afternoon on New Years Day and found some more trails on the north section past the water tank. This was the first time in a couple years, and I got to go back for more exploring, could see a few technical steep singletracts in the very north peaks I have to check out for sure next time.

    How was the situation with the mud on 01-Jan?

    Everywhere local was a mess. My bike got so bound up at one point the wheels wouldn't roll. This was on the fire roads near Calavera.

    Yeah, Calaveras has some of the worst mud and takes a long time to dry out.

    Deer Springs is not too bad except up near the water tank in pretty gunky but did not glog the wheels, and had to travel through several large puddles and some were over a foot deep.

    The north section of Flightline away from the oak grove and creek is probably has best condition of North County. Going to ride there at noon if dosn't rain.

    I think I'll go check ou that Deer Springs trail

    Looks like a nice change of pace to head out and explore. Can you get some miles in back there or is it a fairly small area?

    Flightline is the call for today, the dg soil handles the water pretty well. We just have to hope the 50's don't hit it hard because they really tear it up when the ground is soft.

    Aero photo of the area. One can easily get over ten miles on a route. I don't measure distance in miles or km only time and vertical feet. I'm not a roadie.
