    Spring Creek Road Conditions - Doctors Park, Bear, etc?

    Curious what the trail conditions are like off of Spring Creek Road near Taylor/Spring Creek reservoirs? Specifically, Doctor's Park and Flag, Bear, Cement Mtn, Rosebud? The CB trail conditions are almost a week out of date. Wondering if things have dried out with the heat?

    Per the website: Doctor Park Trail #424
    Conditions: June 3rd, tw13 - Spring Creek Road is dusty and washboard. The Doctors Park downhill is completely dry also and riding wonderfully. However, there is a poop load of snow up high in the trees where the climb turns to single trail. Gandy Gulch (Doctor Bonus, dc loop) is good out in the open but be prepared to hike a few snow piles in the forest sections. The Doctors Park 424 way at the top is still all snow, ok, go the Gandy Gulch way. It is probably still best as an out & back from the Taylor camp ground, honestly.

    Doctor's is a go as a loop. CBMBA is still reporting snow on Reno. I would think Bear could be a little muddy still.

    I was thinking about attempting reno/flag/bear/deadman's this coming weekend. With all the hot/dry weather this week the melt is really accelerating, so I'm thinking it will either be good to go or be very close. Doc Park should be good also after this week.

    Good job!

    Just back from CB this past weekend. We were told Reno/Flag/Bear/Deadman's loops were still too muddy/snowy in woods and up high. We rode lower stuff: loops out from Tony's to Upper Upper/Whestone to Strand/Strand Bonus to Deer Creek (excellent!!) or Farris Creek stuff. Both 30+ milers and FANTASTIC rides! What a place! Makes NM feel too dry for sure!

    Rode Reno/Flag/Bear/Deadman's today, reno road is clear of snow, only the few usual spots are muddy, 99% of it is dry. Getting a bit moon dusty in spots because of the dry/warm weather so bring chain lube. Cement creek is just below knee deep at the crossing and pretty easy to ford with water levels dropping. Only saw 1 other person the whole day on a Saturday out there...gotta love CB! Go get it!

    I would suspect Doc park is nearly all dry as well since it's not too far away, although not sure on how deep spring creek is right now.
