    Deepest thing I crossed was about sack high. I'm 6'5" and the anxiety over the cold water improved my clearance.


    ~34"

    I'm rocking ~32" and I can tell you straight up that anyone who says that an extra two inches don't make a difference is a liar.
    Yeah, it's strange. But oh well.

    I rode Pisgah yesterday and the recent storms have put some trees on the ground so it is a good time to throw your saws in your packs before heading out!

    It was damp in a few spots but even Avery Creek trail was mostly dry so I'm still calling it good to ride

    It seems as if nobody uses this thread anymore but I figured I might revive it since there has been quite a bit of rain in the last week or so.

    I went out and road Black Mtn today and I must say it was all dry. The only place you could tell it had even been raining was Clawhammer Road, the trail itself was completely dry. So folks, don't be afraid to go hit up some Pisgah!

    Not anymore . I can't speak for Dupont or Bent Creek but I just came down from Mt. Pisgah and the trails were fine. One of the many great things about the PRD is how quickly the trails drain and dry - good thing as it is a temperate rain forest!

    That 10" fallen red oak on lower Black is somewhat out of the way. How do I know it's 10inches? Cuz my saw was only eight.

    I dragged one end as far as I could to allow some passage. Cutting out a section would have been best but did I mention the 8" saw.

    Thanks to the person that had previously cut partially through and quit, it gave me inspiration.

    I rode Squirrel on Saturday and it is seriously overgrown with briers and other crap on both sides that conspired to scratch me up pretty bad. I will try to remember to take a set of hand clippers with me next time I hit that trail.

    Vineyard gap is good. Bradley and Riverside are typical...Laurel creek is mostly good other than the standard wet spots. Squirrel is overgrown in places. One big tree down on Mullinax.

    6 ticks found between me and my dog today. Be advised to look out for the little bastards.

    Shhh... That's really not what I want to hear. I've been out of town with no bike riding for almost a month and what does it do the day I get back? Rain like crazy! It's killing my soul.

    It has been two days since the Pisgah area has received substantial rainfall and based on what I have seen on the trails since then I'd say Pisgah is drying fast. Bent Creek and Dupont likely need more time to drain before they see heavy bike traffic but anyone looking to ride in Pisgah proper doesn't need to let last week's rain scare them away.

    I rode Trace Ridge (N Mills River) day before yesterday and it was surprisingly dry, not even a little muddy. I rode Dupont (Cedar Rock -> Burnt Mtn) the day before that and it was still pretty wet in a lot of places. Those two trails tend to drain pretty well though, the rest of Dupont is probably in not such good condition.
    I will try and make it out to Pisgah tomorrow to see how things are, I would imagine things are pretty dry by now.

    That depends on the beat of your drum.
