    Can anyone update the hydrocut conditions? I am hoping to ride there Saturday if possible.

    According to @WCCTrails on twitter yesterday the trails were closed due to mud and downed trees.

    Might be worth watching for updates, temps have dipped down a bit.

    I was at Christie today and would expect the Hydrocut to be the same. Everything was frozen, no ice, tiny bit of snow, trail was pretty well clear. Traction was amazing, sounded like riding on popcorn riding over the frozen tread marks.

    The weather has been weird lately, anything above zero and I would definitely avoid the Hydrocut because of the soil and how it doesn't handle "wet" very well. If you're in the area and need to ride, try the Puslinch trails East of Cambridge or drive down to Woodstock and ride The Pines - except for the roots & rocks, both of those trail systems are fairly good in the wet. Turkey Point is also a great choice in questionable weather but also much further away.

    Tempted to go the the Cut if it's cool enough but am also tempted to check The Pines for the first time - what's the approx length of the red system?

    Have you guys ever run the single track next to the Walter Bean trail at the grand River?
    My friend was walking his dog there tonight and said it was all frozen and hard. I am planning to ride there before lunch. If the Hydrocut is closed come there.

    I think it's around 14km for the Red loop. Nice thing about the trail layout at The Pines is you can just loop back and ride the same section again for more fun and more mileage.

    Yes, there are various offshoots from the community trail you can hit along the river, from just east of the Ottawa St. end, to about the fairway bridge. Around Ottawa st there are the Natchen Hill trails, a few short loops unmarked and unmaintained. Expect lots of roots in some sections.

    I ride in there occasionally when the hydrocut is closed. Huron Natural Area has a few loops too that people ride year round, but its pretty tame in there.

    Yeah I had a great ride near the Grand Monday. Best in weeks. Hard, dry and fast. Hopefully the same today when I get out.
