    New question here. How was Gambrill yesterday?

    I was wondering how the conditions were up there?
    Is the Monday slacker ride still on? No one posted a place or time.

    Ice or deep crusty crud

    Near the trailhead the trails were basically a thin ribbon of ice surrounded by deep (3-6 inches) of crusty iced over snow. After a mile or two they were just the deep crusty, iced over snow with the occassional footprint.

    In short I'd recommend not heading up there Monday unless you're looking to lug you bike around during an icy hike.

    Thanks for the trail condition update...

    has anyone tried Schaeffer? Maybe there has been more melt there. I am going to take the Cross over to little bennette today. I will report back on conditions there.

    Rode by on the road yesterday, the trail head off landing looked like a sheet of ice. I'm sure it got muddy too. Now thats its froze up, wonder if its decent.

    Lil Bennette was not very good either,

    Shady sections were either ice or crusty snow. The rest was ok. When it warms up, it will be mud fest!
