    WI trails-dry dry?

    Anyone happen to know of any trails that dry fairly quickly with all the rain we've been getting this week? Over in the Neenah/Appleton area and trying to find a place to put in some miles...

    Any experience with Nordic mountain or Hartman Creek in waupauca?

    Would like to keep the drive within 90 minutes

    Both dry quickly. It could be slick if there are still wet leaves. I don't think Nordic is maintained in the fall after the leaves are on the ground, not sure on Hartman Creek.

    Hartman dries really fast

    Just look at how much quicker it opens in the spring compared others around the area.

    it isn't exactly what I would call a really fun trail. But if you don't mind putting a bunch of miles on what I would consider very basic beginner single track it might be worth a drive.

    Re: WI trails-dry dry?

    It's fast and has decent flow but nothing too technical. Gave the trails an extra day to dry and now planning on going tomorrow.

    I think with the leaves, nordic may not be the best option...Bairds Creek or possibly even Greenbush? I doubt standing rocks will be open.

    Any other options?

    Reforestation camp in GB dries out OK, not as quickly as Hartman but not far behind. Baird Creek doesn't dry very well, there were still some muddy areas and a bit of standing water prior to last week after many days of no rain.

    I've never rode reforestation so after the game I'll give that a shot. Thanks!

    Reforestation was pretty fun, fast and had really good flow through the entire trail.
    Few areas were a bit muddy but nothing bad.
    I know that Hartman Creek has been having some work days to work on a new re route so I might have to check that out this week.

    Would anyone know of bairds FB page? Can't really find any information as to when their work days/group rides are.

    Standing rocks is open till sometime in November. You just need to call to see if it's open before you go.

    I think N.E.W. Kranks is the IMBA chapter for Kewaunee and some of Brown county. They have a FB page and some great members. Also check out the FVMTB FB page. I forget the other chapter in NEWT.

    Nitr0 the facebook page has all the info you are looking for.

    Rode Baird yesterday, the new trail signage is awesome and trails are in good shape. A handful of muddy spots but most of those areas are always wet.

    Yeah I finally found their group. Thanks for all the info! Hopefully get out there tomorrow and ride the new trail they just got done. Looks like it's all leaf blowed as well!!
