    New question here. Lake Hope: Recent Trail Conditions?

    It looks like I may be in the area this weekend and would love to ride Lake Hope if so. Has anyone ridden recently? What kind of shape are the trails in? I've checked a couple of other sites, but don't see anything updated in the past two months.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you rode last saturday, I am sure it was nice. We had a good amount of snow since then, so the melt has surely made it quite wet. I would check later friday.

    I assume you live around there. How much snow did you get? The snow that hit Columbus was gone in a day.

    I have property not too far from there. Most of the snow has melted, but it will all be gone today. I had about 3 inches of snow total on the ground monday. I just came from some trails by Chillicothe. I would not ride those today. I stuck to fire roads. It is possible to be good by sunday. Maybe even saturday.

    Thanks guys for the replies. Looks like I may just wait until next time I'm in the area to ride these trails.

    From NOAA, it looks like this weekend might not be the best time to hit the trails. With the accumulation of snow earlier this week, the melt-off, it is bound to be muddy. Not too mention it is probably going to rain saturday and sunday.

    Sorry plumbbob =(

    Any chance someone can give an update late tomorrow. We want to head down from Columbus on Saturday, but don't want to ride in mud.

    I didn't get to the lake hope today to check the trails, but my trails were decent, but you are going to find some mud. I wouldn't take the chance if you are expecting it to be optimal. Good luck.

    Minus a handful or two of wet/muddy spots, the trail is bone dry.

    Glad you talked me out of it...

    Just want to say that I am glad you guys talked me out of riding the LH trails this weekend. I decided to take my older hardtail instead of my new Fuel Ex. I had a great final ride on it around and near Lake Logan on Friday. And on Sunday, on the way home we were rear-ended in the 95-car pile up on I-77 and the bike was destroyed. It's funny how things work out sometimes.

    So, thanks again!
