Current status of Carvins Cove trails?
I rode at the Cove last Thanksgiving weekend and am looking forward to going again this year. I have searched the Cove Info thread some and it seems the most recent updates there are from 3/12. I have also visited the Roanoke IMBA site and downloaded the updated map. I haven't found any trail status information and I've seen some chatter about outrageous boggy conditions in a few locations on the lower trails. I remember getting pretty muddy and having to hike-a-bike through muck last time, and I wonder if it's worse now?
I'd be grateful for any updates on the trails including things to avoid if they exist. I'm an intermediate/advanced rider by self-proclamation I suppose. Recently rode the Southern Traverse and some trails at Douthat SP if that gives any indication of ability and stamina. I was definitely off the bike and pushing on parts of both, but I like all sorts of terrain and challenges.
Thanks for any updated info.
