    June 1 or...

    When you aren't making ruts.

    Since there are so many people with poor judgment, they have to put a date on it. The trails are all good. Llama was a bit wet in spots so we didn't keep going on it. Janice's trails, the ones I've been on, have all been good. Down low (I call it the mattress trail) it is not good.

    Happy riding.

    rode them today, only had to get off my bike thrice in the spirit of being rut-wise. upper trails were best. really like those advanced loops. south rim was also good about half the way up, then it got wet, good place to turn around.

    Yep.

    An early season this year to make up for a late, non-existent summer last year.

    I have seen downhillers/wanna be downhillers at the bottom of shuttle rides from powerline. They must be thrashing the trail up there as they are covered in thick mud glops. I like mud glops, but that is why they say wait until June 1. Some just don't have the judgment.

    I'm heading out.

    Directions?

    I downloaded the map off STA's site, but did not see any indication of trail directions. Are all the trails multi-directional? Or are some ascending and others descending?

    I think it is safe to say

    they are multi directional. Downhill dudes yield to uphill dudes (a weird rule, but I guess it's nice). The downhills aren't ever terribly fast so it isn't too much of a safety issue I don't think.

    The trails are definitely all multi-directional. They were also designed to be so tight and twisty that high speeds shouldn't be a problem, so if everyone pays attention while riding, things should be quite safe.

    Sorry I'm late to this forum. The trails are awesome. Go ride them! There are two large mud holes (Hornet's Nest and Stinger) that will be fixed with some better drainage on National Trails Day (June 6th). The seep at the bottom of Drone Lane will need some work also.

    Watch out for calving moose!

    I am amazed at how many trees blew down up there this spring!! And, I love the new rock trail features.
