    Absolutely right. Hit Maston and Cline today. Cut my ride short. TOO WET!! Needs at least two more days in the 50's.

    I rode Matson yesterday (clockwise) and really only two areas that were soggy (north end near cline falls parking area) and on the route back from river canyon to main parking lot was worst section about 1/2 mile was sloppy. Other than that all other sections were in great shape.

    Is Horse Ridge sloppy right now?

    Time of day seems to make a big impact in terms of conditions. I hit Maston early this morning and it was firm and fast. As the day proceeds expect more mud. Happy Riding!!!!

    Because they either don't care, are lazy, or think that when COTA asks not to ride somewhere it doesn't apply to them.

    My ride Thursday night was good. I agree with William that it probably depends on the time of day. I started my ride at 7PM and it was a little soft but was firming up pretty quickly. The sections running in the old canals on both the South and North sides were still holding water but everything else was good.

    it's under about 20" of super heavy snow. The snowmobile trails and such are ridable with a fatbike I would guess.

    Anyone tried riding the snowmobile trails on something like a 2.4?

    Depends on how much fun you do/don't want to have.

    The snow on Snow mobile trails is deep, and though it's packed, it's not like riding horse butte in a few inches of snow where your 2" tires go down all the way to the ground.

    Yes, and if the conditions are right it is fun. But usually the conditions are wrong. You need the trails to melt a bit and then freeze hard. And if it is going to warm up during the day don't go too far as it is warming or you will be walking.

    I'm looking to escape the snow melt in the Methow Valley (N. Central Washington) next week. We still have 4 feet on the ground at our house so riding isn't going to happen any time soon. Are there enough trails that are in right now in Bend to justify a trip down for a few days?

    Bend is looking pretty dry at the moment. Horse butte, horse ridge, maston, cline, radlands, etc all good to go.
