    da moon. not.

    Hit the moon up today since it was such a nice day for a ride. Went thru thorny a d started on big blue. Big mistake. Popped out onto the field and back to the car. What a mudfest. A sure way to ruin the trails. Most of the trails should not have been ridden on Imho. Ended up down jim thorpe for a ride on flag staff ridge. A lot drier and more enjoyable with less damage to the trail. Hope everyone had a nice day.
    LOVE THE RIDE!

    Thank you. It would be nice if more people had a concern for the trail. It was possible to do a loop at Moon Lake without mud, but required some creativity. The "popular" trails are all in terrible shape.

    +1000 for responsible trail use, and not abuse!

    The fact that there is actually mud build up there is amazing, it is usually so quick in draining.

    Good thing we have other options, a veritable cornucopia of options!

    Yep, certain trails were bad as they always are in the "spring thaw" With the combo of ice, snow and water running off doesn't happen fast like it does in a rain storm.

    We rode today, lots of trails, at da mOOn, avoided Thorny and lower T-Rex2. They are always know to be bad. You know you rode there this past all last summer and the mud dries and ruts go away after the spring thaw.

    You could have rode "Hunlocks Rocks"
