    The trail conditions hot line has been saying not until April 1. Seems like the blue without the squirrell loop to the connector could be open by now.

    The Reforestation trails northwest of Green Bay opened last weekend.

    CamRock was open last weekend too.
    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.

    I'd like to ride Friday, cant Sunday. If the trails ware wet or something and need the time, I understand. But to start on a Sunday? Why not just open it for the weekend - Fri - Sunday

    70% chance of rain on Friday - likely will delay opening.

    It rained last night into Friday morning. Nothing will be open on Saturday in South Central Wisconsin.

    Considering how rutted and generally f'ed up the trails are at DG, no one should be riding out there for a while.

    That is, if one respects the trail tread.

    Northern Kettles have been open for more than week. We got a bunch of rain last night and it's still pouring this morning so I'd say this weekend is out for riding here. Maybe late Sunday afternoon if the sun comes out.

    Gee, so I can't ride the gravel trails either? Let me guess, you're a Cambr member....

    Have never been nor intend to be a Cambr member.

    As far as the gravel trail goes, the gravel ends at the stables. The damage done to both the outer, and, especially, the inner trails by the stables is substantial. The rest of the gravel trail tread is being widened, in certain spots, by riding when conditions don't dictate it should be ridden. Again, bad form. Not pointing my finger at you, there are more than enough assclowns who ride out there with no sense of trail responsibility.

    I don't go by the stables, please STFU unless you see me damaging DG. Speaking of assclowns, are you one of those parkers I see trolling for a BJ?

    Trails were good at Muir on Sunday. Not too wet and great traction.

    I'm a CAMBR member, and we don't do anything at DG anymore as far as I know. Besides the place pretty much is worthless for riding unless your into the fitness side of things, which is cool w/ me, to each his own. I just can't get down with the crushed limestone- gets real boring real fast for me, but a couple guys I ride with love the place. These same guys also have no trail manners and most likely are helping rut the joint out. That's why I don't invite them to ride the kettles w/ me!
    ...don't worry it's coming...
