    Trails that Drain Well in SEPA

    Considering we have gotten 8" of rain and are due for more this week, I am trying to figure what trails may have held up and would be rideable come Friday. I am curious about Gretna. I know Trexler is, but I just got back from Alligrippis and need to get some rocks back into the ride. Thoughts?

    Trails that Drain Well in SEPA

    I rode there today, partly in Gov Dick: trails 5,2,9&6 -- the sections I was on were fine. Trails around the rail trail were muddy. The game lands across Pinch Rd get real swampy. 13's probably OK, but 15 is pretty iffy.

    Btw, for comparison I gave it a shot yesterday at Betzwood but turned around right away when I saw how bad it was. I don't think Gretna got hit so bad. Didn't see any trees down.)

    Camp Mack is usually good about 2 days after the last rainfall from what I have seen so far this year.

    13 at Governor Dick seems to hold water in a couple places a little longer than say 2, 5, 9 and 6 like Lou said above. There has been a pretty damp area lately on 5 between 10 and 9, but you can avoid most of it by riding on the uphill edge.

    Rocky Ridge does drain well but they close the trails when it rains.... There are also a few places close to Allentown that stay pretty dry, Lehigh, sals, South mountain Emmaus.

    Drains well or not it's the slick rocks exposed and under leaves you have to worry about. Those are everyhere.

    Consider it an opportunity to hone your riding skills. Lol
