    How does White Clay/Middle Run hold up? How's the rain been in Newark?

    Hey, all,

    Sorry for the dumb question. Getting a full day of riding for my upcoming birthday this Sunday and was planning on hitting White Clay/Middle Run. We've had light rain by me out in Philly. Can anyone speak to how the trails hold up/how bad it's been in the area, rain-wise?

    Hoping to make alternate plans if it's a no-go!

    Thanks in advance!

    We aren't getting a ton of rain in Newark right now but it also looks like the forecast has it raining every day for the next few days. It might even be raining on Sunday (40% chance is the current forecast). The trails do drain pretty well, but it will likely need 24-48 hours to firm up after several days of rain like we are getting now.

    My best guess is that this weekend is probably a no-go for riding down here this weekend based on the current weather forecast.

    I agree with formula. Stay out this weekend. Some spots should be ok, but I always give it 48 hrs after it rains. I was hoping to make it out this weekend, but with the rain we got today and the forecast for the next few days, I am now shooting for Tuesday at the earliest.

    Take a rain check (haha) on this weekend, and come to the Trail Spinners Jamboree at Fair Hill in a couple of weeks instead: MTB Jamboree | Delaware Trail Spinners. It's gonna be a good time!
