    Bidwell park

    Anyone know if upper bidwell is open now, how it handles rain, and if night riding is possible?

    Iíve been up there since the fires started, and am heading back tomorrow for at least a couple more weeks. Iím just wondering if itís worth bringing a bike to try to sneak in an evening ride or two.

    Trails are currently closed :/ You can check any time on this city website. And all trails on the south side of the creek are closed regardless of weather due to a fire earlier this year

    Unfortunately the trails don't handle rain well, or at least some areas of the trails. It's heavy peanut butter clay that doesn't drain well. The city is pretty careful about closing the trails to prevent damage and they usually keep them closed about a week after a decent storm.

    The park road is usually open if you just need to pedal and are ok with gravel, so the note on the site about the road being closed is unusual. They may just be referring to cars though

    The park is open until 10 or 11 pm, so night riding is ok when the trails open

    I would bring the bike just in case we get a good break between weather systems. It will be well worth it even for one good day!
