    I can't say for sure, but it is probably too wet.

    Check the HMBA.org website under BCSP. Someone near there might have an answer to current conditions.

    Great trail btw if you have not been there.

    BCSP is still wet, and some trees down.You might try Chubb down in St.Louis or a hop further down the road to the Berryman. Otherwise you'd have to go to Southern Ky, into Knoxville or onto Pisgah. How bad are you jonesin to ride?

    The Land Between the Lakes is basically closed down due to the ice storm. There are hundreds of trees across the trails. On top of that, it is still very muddy.

    What's in Pisgah? I live in Southern Ohio, but not familar with the Pisgah area. How are the trails and what kind of riding is it?


    Thanks,

    Thanks,
    didn't you hear? pisgah sucks... move along.


    Pisgah=100's of miles of trails on some of the best terrain in the country. I'd recommend searching the North Carolina forum. Lots of ride info. on there.
    oh... I'm too depressed for murder and mayhem!

    My avatar is the suspension bridge over South Mills River via Squirrel Gap. One of the best singletrack trails around.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I'll go cruise the NC forum. Sounds like a good road trip this spring/summer.

    Here's the deal. The weather in Indiana is unpredictable. We're expecting several inches of snow tonight up North. The trails could be nice, they could be full of mud. Brown County State Park is nice, even if you can't ride you can find plenty to do. Not bad road riding there either.

    Actually, you will have ride further south than KY. It's sloppy around here for most part.

    Lot's of riding down around Knoxville and Chattanooga, TN if you don't want to ride all the way to Pisgah.

    I just rode this past weekend on the Sheltowee near Cumberland Falls and trails were fine.
