    Just rode the green belt yesterday. There were some tacky spots, but no real water on the trail. The creek was full so we never bothered with the dam, stayed on the south side all day.

    It rained all weekend at my house in the Hamilton Pool area outside of BeeCaves/Dripping Springs. Was supposed to ride with a buddy at Reimer's, but it would have been WAY to muddy and would tear up the trail. Pace Bend can drain fairly well, but didn't want to chance it. It has rained some more in the early week as well, so I will probably take my friend to Muleshoe. It probably is the best track to go after it rains. It can be really sandy, so some moisture firms a lot of it up quite a bit.

    It is my understanding that Reveille is a great place to ride after it rains, but haven't been there yet. (I know, it is on my short list in the very near future)

    Since this thread was started two weeks ago....

    everything is good now, but I would imagine that some of the flat areas, closer to barton creek are still soft.

    Barton creek has water in it. I've never rode it with the creek full. I got extremely lost out there my last ride.

    Just be cautious if your like me and only familiar with the trail that goes thru the creek.

    I start at the buildings on 360.

    Dang, Slaughter is still down? I guess that second little loop really becomes a mess when it rains hard. Walnut is usually a mess as well. Muleshoe, Pace, and Reimers are all completely dry for anyone interested.
