    Anybody ridden Wh. Ranch lately?

    What's the status of upper/ lower Mustang? Closed already? How are the replacement trails?

    From 9/16:
    Rode White last night. I went up Belcher, hit roundup, then came down Lower Mustang and cleaned it! First time I've done that in a very long time. It's recieved very little maintenance and is very rutted and raw right now. Pretty fun and challenging actually. From there I rode north on Shorthorn to the North end of Longhorn and descended. Another demanding trail. Fun! From there I hit the new trail. Yawn. I didn't know it was even possible to make a trail so smooth.

    Don't know what's happened since then!
    Take the long cut, we'll get there eventually.

    I rode white in early/mid october and lower mustang was still open. I'm betting they didn't get a chance to close it this season. Probably early next season...any one else got any better beta?

    Like debaser said. The new trail between Belcher and the low point on Longhorn is a buttery smooth 3 foot swath of "singletrack", My g'ma could hike it walking backwards the whole way.

    No other new trails are under contruction that I know of, though upper mustang will get some major rework to it next season.

    Good job!

    I rode W.R. Sunday, Mustang was open but I did the Belcher > Maverick > Shorthorn > Longhorn loop.
    I did ride Mustang from the top of Sawmill about 2 weeks ago, and it was pretty dished but, rideable.
    New trail is smooth like glass, waste of time but, lower Longhorn is fun.
