    Sandy when wet?

    Thinking of visiting Sandy Ridge but am curious about how it holds up to rains. Is it ridable when wet or will tires tear it up? What's the elevation, will it eventually get closed due to snow?

    SR drains very well. I'd avoid it during severe down pours but give it a day and it good.

    The upper evevations of SR do get snow. I think its a little over 2000' at top of ridge. Lower HS trail is usually open year round.

    Sandy when wet?

    The new parking lot is just below 1100. The top of rock drop is around 2400. The top of flow motion is right about 2000, and the top of H&S half way drop-in is 1700.

    Most of the year you can ride the lower half of H&S. There are a few months when there can be too much snow above half way, and a few times a year when you can't even ride above the top of little monkey.
