    Anyone care to update on what trails in San Diego County (or area) are currently open?

    That is jackassy, sorry.

    Daley drains well. Not sure if they close it due to rain though. The Man Trails are probably open and they are always slippery. So the rain wont matter.

    Ah, but what you said was "what trails are open?"

    You need to be more clear. We are not able to read your mind. At the time you posted, it was raining. I'm guessing more that one person thought you were asking about the rain. There were numerous posts about the very subject.

    Most areas affected by the fires are still closed and will most likely remain so for some time.

    MTBBill has a great resource page if you were unaware of it.

    Hey, trails affected by fires are often badly affected by subsequent rains. Silt runoff, rutting, muddage...etc. In some places it might be six of one, half dozen of the other.

    We are certainly poised for a repeat of a few years ago. 2003 fires followed by bunch of rain in early 2004.

    PQ is closed and so is Lake Hodges. PQ will be closed for a while, with these new rains coming, and wet for a long time.

    The park itself for the most part only needs a couple of days, but the area south of the gate back to highschool can be a gooey mess in numerous spots needing sometimes needing a week or two. Sycamore Canyon has a habit of attracting the type of rides that don't want to get dirty but want to ride after a rain. These folks go out and ride around all the puddles and widen out the trail and just make things worse.

    Here is my cut on wet trail rating in SD.
