    New to riding after snow, good to go?

    I would like to go ride this morning/afternoon at Green Mountain, but I am worried that the trails will be too wet. It didnt snow much yesterday, but do you think with the fast melt-off that the trails will be good to go?

    I rode the Chimney Gulch/Apex horseshoe yesterday evening - all good! There were a few wet spots but nothing to write about. I did not, however, ride the Enchanted Forest part of Apex. (I wanted the sun)
    Green Mountain is probably August dry by now.
    Have fun!

    Snow on GM burns off FAST. Hit it.
    I might be out there tonight.

    We rode Hall last night and it was bone dry. Not even good dirt. I couldn't believe it was back to it's usually decomposing and sandy self. Good stuff.

    I doubt any of the snow actually made it into the soil. Seems like it evaporates or sublimates (oooohhhh 25 cent word).

    Just for perspective, I did a night ride at GM the day it snowed. Perfect conditions. No snow or mud.
