    It's probably better to discuss this stuff in another board

    True but this is about a trail(s) in Pisgah.

    Yes, but current trail conditions, not trail impact or trail building

    I'll be in the area for the next couple of days and was wondering what shape the Pisgah gravel roads (479, 5000, 1208) are in? Still a lot of snow?

    With the warm weather coming, and the rain, there will probably be no snow, but everything will be sloppy wet.

    The snow is still present in many places and still deep in the places that get no sun

    In the mornings it has a hard frozen top
    In the afternoons when it warms up is is slushy

    I rode/pushed up 475b from the fish hatchery yesterday
    It was an adventure
    No one had been there yet and it was very tough riding

    I turned around up near 225 gate and rode back down 475b

    Similar story for me this morning.

    I got out early enuf to fool the Freeze-Thaw Gods, or so I thought. I rode the 'little m' in Pisgah and it was everything from frozen slush to muddled yuck to crunchy splooge. I got in maybe one or two whoo-hoo's coming down Thrift but that was it. Gonna be awhile 'fore any of it is ride-able again. Dupont's probably the same.

    Yeah, yesterday I was trying to figure out what the heck would be rideable. The best I could come up with was gravel roads. NOPE!!!!

    On 475B in the shady areas, there is still up to 6 inches of snow with a crust on top

    But it was a good workout for sure and my two dogs had a blast

    From what I hear Bent Creek is still a muddy mess.
    Pisgah I imagine it depends on the trails.
    DuPont is pretty good on the Lake Imaging side but can't speak for the rest.

    Where are you wanting to ride?
    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.

    I was out Wednesday and it was fine.

    A bit soupy where there was allot of rotting leaves and such on the trail and the water could not drain well, but not horrible at all.

    I just did a short route with my dogs, all I had time for

    Up black mountain from parking lot, thrift cove, grassy, upper sycamore, back to parking lot.

    It rained Friday night, so the trails have had some more water since I was out Wednesday

    I'm heading out in the morning anyway.

    Did plenty riding from clawhammer to S Mills and squirrel. For the most part it was great. A couple sloppy spots but few and far between. Enjoy the trails

    1st time for our group to hit squirrel gap as an out and back (parked at turkey pen lot, s mills to Mullinax to squirrel to turn around at horse cove). We had a great time. trail was in excellent shape. Weather was unreal for late feb. 70deg in short sleeves and shorts, can't beat that for wNC riding.

    Saw lots of riders out and about

    Everything I rode was perfect.

    Horse stables, Clawhammer, down buckhorn, mills river to gauging station/476, pink beds connector, pink beds, back to horse stables via white pines road

    This is good to see. I'm thinking about making a trip there the first week of April. It's cold and muddy here in KY, no trails will be ridable for quite a while.

    It can change from sloppy to great here in just a few days.

    The snow had just melted and then it rained but three days later all was good again

    I'm planning on heading to Bent Creek the first weekend of April (4-7). Please keep me updated on trail conditions for planning/packing.
