    Trails are good according to the HMBA. org web site.
    Late Saturday into Sunday there may be some rain.

    Rode there this past Sunday. Trails are awesome. There are puddles but no extended muddy sections. It's basically all hero dirt.
    I'd stay off Schooner because wet tires and rock gardens can be a bad combo.

    We have had heavy rains and flooding this week, I would give 24 hours from the last rain to the first ride. I'd predict that to be Saturday afternoon at the earliest.

    Bump, any recent reports? Thinking of swinging by there as I am crossing the country via 70...

    Very doubtful. Trails are red, with quite a bit of rain last week (and all April...2nd wettest April on record I think.) It was raining much of the day yesterday.

    Rideit, when are you coming out?
    Another nice thing about BC is that it dries out very quickly. All the trails are ridge side and drain really well so there is minimal puddling. Couple days of sun and wind will usually do it.

    Best to check the "dots" at the top of the hmba page: Hoosier Mountain Bike Association - Index
    They are updated pretty frequently most of the time.
    Riding.....

    Which means BCSP is good to go. Like I said, those trails dry very quickly.
