    Is Austin dry?

    Lots of rain in Houston so maybe heading to Austin/SA for some riding. How do the trails look?

    Some rode City Park today. I'm sure alot of the trails are still swampland.

    Does it dry up pretty fast there in Austin? We plan on riding some trails there this weekend.

    The greenbelt was dry enough to ride this weekend, but the rocks got pretty slippery. I went out to Walnut on Sat. and it was a mud pit.

    It's rained in OKC for the last 15 days straight and I'm going to be in Austin this weekend anyway so I'd like to ride if I could. Is anything dry in Austin? I'm just getting into mountain biking and don't really know the trails around town.

    City Park should be ok to ride. Everything else should be covered in mud.

    Is the greenbelt really ok?

    This site says its around 4' which seems high for that part of the trail.

    Is everything still crossable?

    What about the crossing just past the chains? I seem to remember it being over 6' in the past.

    Should be OK. I am taking a group out on Sunday morning @ 9 if you want to join us. No creek crossing, we'll get in all of our mileage on the south side.
