    Trail conditions Paris Mountain SC and Clemson SC?

    Been searching the web for an hour trying to find out the trail conditions for Paris Mountain or Clemson. I'm in the Atlanta are and want to ride Monday and Tuesday. Hard to find a system that would be OK.

    Checking for you. I've inquired with friends that went to Paris today. Checking on FB group for Issaqueena.

    I know Paris had a couple inches of snow, but a lot of that has melted today, and pretty much all of it will be gone tomorrow. I don't know that I would ride Paris on Monday (people did ride today), but Tuesday should be fine IMO. They do not close the trails there, but they will post a sign at the gate requesting bikes to not ride if the trails are too wet. I have called and asked before, and been told that maybe we should give it another day, only to see that friends rode there, and said the trails were perfect.

    Clemson is another place where the trails don't close. I don't think they had quite as much snow, but I am not sure. I did see on Strava that some people rode there today.

    I haven't ridden either one the past few days but they usually drain well, don't think you'll have a problem. You can also try The FB group "Mountain biking the Upstate" as it will probably yield a quicker response.
    Have a good ride.

    Edited to add...I'm a day late and dollar short.

    Not sure about Paris, but I know several people who have ridden Pleasant Ridge since Tuesday, and said it's fine. Plus Upstate SORBA has a trail work day there tomorrow, so any damage will be fixed. I would think Paris Mountain would be fine as well.

    Tim, Issaqueena riding OK? Thinking about heading down there Sunday or Monday (I get federal holidays off work) if it does rain in the mountains enough to keep the mud levels high.

    Issaqueena should be fine assuming no torrential downpour on Saturday night.

    Pisgah may be ok, but Dupont is not. It was a swamp on Tuesday evening. I think it needs time to dry out.

    Yep, Pleasant Ridge was great today. Let's hope we don't get a lot of rain tomorrow, since Sunday is supposed to be another nice day. Thanks for your help!
