    Any word on Puslinch trail conditions?

    I've been hearing mixed messages regarding Puslinch trail conditions. Has anyone been there recently?

    I was there today, sat. The conditions couldn't be better. Maybe 5 or 6 wet spots and the rest was perfect 'hero dirt'. Had the 29er out, and I'll have the 26er out tomorrow. Couldn't believe how few riders there were to be honest.

    Guys, guys,....The thing to remember about the Pusslynch is that conditions are always perfect....I've ridden there in the rain, after a week of rain, in the winter, with no troubles.

    Truly an MTB riding gem.....

    Not sure if I'd agree - I rode Puslinch last night and there were many soft spots. Just a couple were muddy but definitely leaving a tire track. I would imagine on Monday they were very wet .
    Did one quick ride through the pines, then went through again with pruning shears clipping some of the bushes back. Had to give up though, mosquitoes were getting bad. Had to keep moving.

    Anyone else notice that something has broken the Strava segments through the pines. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I see that someone has created new segments. It might be following the trail to go around the new birch log across the trail near the end of the pines.
    Just can't manage that one - the birch log, right hand turn, and the roots all in one feature beats me.

    I beg to differ, slashs, but I was out Monday (6.3.13) morning, and conditions were heroic. Both Pines and Hardwood sides...

    What do they call it when you quote yourself? Oh, yeah: "Style"
    Anyways, in the interest of updating this thread, I'd like to underscore the following quote by reminding everyone that the trails conditions at the illustrious Crown (yet another secret code word for the Puslinch Tract trails) are approaching heroic status: 40+mm of fresh/packed powder on a packed foot/ski/bike trench worthy of a least an hour in the saddle! You know what they say about winter riding...

    Thanks for the update!

    Is it good without a standard MTB or is a fatty required?
