    There is no reason to worry about rain at Moon Lake. It has miracle soil in most areas and drains very well into the lake. Possibly you my want to avoid JKE, Skinny, and the Peek-A-Boo. Most of the other trails are fine in any conditions but might have small spots of mud. Salamander and Edge are both sidehill trails featuring plenty of rock so are pretty much bulletproof. Just be careful in wet conditions as there are plenty of green rocks and off camber roots. You won't damage the trails, but they might damage you.

    If you want, I can suggest a route for you. I would offer to be your tour guide, but I happen to be 1500 miles away in Texas at the moment. My site has a bunch of maps, but they are works in progress.

    Moon Lake

    Some spots on The Dark can get a little slimy, too. Just scrape up some of the mud and take it with you. Women pay good money at the spa for a mud pack. LOL!

    Good job!

    Yes, it's just great!

    Moon Lake is a design model for drainage helped by excellent soil of lot's of organic on porous rock, and the trails were designed with the mt biker in mind. It really shows the excellent design characteristics in rain events that are days long. I suggest dropping your tires pressures a bit, but remember there are rocks, so just drop it a bit as you don't want pinch flats. You will find the trails, 5858, NFS, Rock-it, TTS, Plan B, as well as Salamander will be very tough to ride when wet, but we like the challenge and usually ride them more in the rainy periods. T-Rex 2 trail is a fav wet or dry and you can really get it ripp'in through there.

    Grab a map on our website or http://chriffer.com/MoonLakeMap,at the park office, Ride it, and enjoy it just be warned like Chiffer says the rocks are like ice as is the wood in the Deacon trials area!

    We built it for you, so please let us know how you like it and post some pics!

    Good job!

    Dave:

    So, that's how you won 17 Ironman championships.

    Get an early lead,
    pee on the trails,
    and watch everyone else slip and fall!

    Moon Lake

    I know a big part of any training regimen is nutrition. Do mud pies offer any Ironman benefits?
