    Christie or hydrocut after rain?

    Looks like rain later today (Saturday). I was hoping to try either of these trails for the first time Sunday morning, but I don't want to damage them if wet. Do these trails drain well? If not please recommend one. I used to live in the area but now I'm a visitor. I've been in NC for the past 10 years. Thanks.

    Only 40%. I'd keep an eye on the weather radar and see if there is much/any rain at the two locations.

    Hydrocut is much more extensive and free. Christie is $9 (although there are ways around that) and limited but a lot of fun.

    Don't know about Christie but Hydrocut is closed when moist, seems to take awhile to reopen som Im assuming it doesn't drain well.

    Maybe try Hilton Falls / Agreement Forest.

    Hilton Falls/Agreement Forest is dangerous in the rocks. Slick as ice. Best place is Turkey Point. Rode HF/AF Today and conditions are great. Puslinch drains better than the Hydrocut.

    Turkey point or The pines in woodstock are the fastest draining/drying around IME. These are your best bet when there has been some recent rains. They are also faster to open up in the spring.
