    Was there sat and its good. Whats usually rocky is good and dirt thats typically hard packed is soft/mushy. Some trees across the slower single track that need clearing. Two things I noticed though, 1} LOTS of horse crap and 2} sticker (pricker) bushes have grown in. I was hoping this winter would have slowed them down but its bad already. Guess I'll walk the dog over there and carry my trimmers on a couple trails.

    Thinking about heading over there for the first time today. Any updates on trail conditions? Also anybody have off today that wants to show me around? I'm about 15 miles away and can jump at a few minutes notice. If not, I'll get lost and figure it out eventually! HAPPY F$&KING SPRING!!!

    You can't really get lost at Mt. Penn. You will eventually come out to a road which you can always ride back to where you parked. If I had my bike with me I might have been able to meet up this afternoon. I work off of Rt 422 near Mt Penn. Maybe next time. Have a nice ride and please post up an after ride trail condition report. Thanks.
    LOVE THE RIDE!

    Awesome conditions. Only ran into one spot of wetness that impeded my ride. Kudos to those who built and maintain this place!! That line from the top of the fire tower make me pucker up a bit when it drops STRAIGHT DOWN! Never needed a dropper seat like I did today.
    I'd still like to ride with someone who knows the place so let me know if/when you guys ride.

    I'm riding there tomorrow afternoon. I'll be slow on the ups as I'm not in great shape, but you're welcome to ride with me.

    A few of us might be riding there Sunday, probably around 11. Have to check the weather to make sure. Will post up here early Saturday evening a definite yes/no and a time. We usually park at the tower lot.

    Possibly Friday during the day, but I might ride French Creek instead since I have to make a visit to a place near there. I'll repost if I'll be there Friday

    Probably get there sometime around noon, but I really don't have much of a schedule, could be an hour either way really. I park at scotts run lake and ride a white rocky mountain.
