    New question here. Heading back to Patapsco this month, and have a trail question

    I've only ridden Patapsco in the fall, the area near Elkridge, MD. How slimy do the trails get this time of year? I was thinking of hauling out the Pugsley instead of the Jekyll that I normally ride. The Jekyll is overkill for most of the trails I hit at Patapsco anyway.

    We've been getting hit with rain and drizzle for the past 24 hours and still going on today. I'd expect it to be muddy a few days after. But we are getting hit with cold temps, so it's best to ride early in the morning when it's below freezing and the ground is crunchy. I would keep my eyes on this page for trail updates:

    If you decide to ask about trail conditions, make sure to mention you're from out of town. Some people get tired of people asking about conditions lol.

    +1 on monitoring the local page.
    It's an area very subject to a lot of freeze/thaw. Either early in the morning, or you have to hope for good timing when temps stay cold for a number of days.
