    Redman , Rocky Ridge, Mt. Gretna or Swatara

    Hey,

    Anyone know what the trails at these places are like? Are they ride able? I was out @ Tuchkahoe this morning, and it was not a lot you could ride without sinking the tires in and abruptly stopping you.

    Thanks!

    Rocky Ridge was ridable over the weekend. Most trails are packed snow or ice. Now they have additional snow 1" to 2" on top of the ice. Redman is being ridden by non-fatbikes, but I don't know the conditions.

    Hey thanks! I might try Redman or the Ridge this weekend. The trainer (and the weather) is making me stir crazy.....

    I too am contemplating rocky ridge, Saturday may be the better day as Sunday is calling for morning freezing rain transitioning to rain. 90%

    I can tell you that Elk Neck was pristine last weekend, but probably under snow now...

    Rocky ridge and Lake Redman are pretty icy right now, ridable but studded tires would really help.

    Thanks. It looks like a good storm coming Saturday. I'm wondering if Sunday's temps(40's) will help, or worsen the ice condition when everything refreezes during the week. Man I need to get outside!

    Swatara is prime, riding now. No ice.

    Something got massacred on trail c. Bunch of blood, looks like it was dragged as it was all up the trail. Hunting perhaps? Started at the bottom of the long uphill if going counterclockwise and continued all the way to the intersection with d where the bench is.
