The warm weather last week, a bit of rain on Saturday evening then a freeze began early Sunday morning with temperatures in the 20s and high winds. Because of the melting snows, have a bit of water issue out on some trails. Use extreme caution out there. Clubs have been trying to mark areas of concern for you.
A big area affected is 89 north. The Border Riders CLub has closed this trail to the border. as of today. I understood there was another area affecting the Sandy Loop trail. You are still able to get to 88 to get to Pittston. The border loop that runs the west side of 201 is reported to be in good condition.
Going south to Parlin, near the Attean lookout is another water hole but we have not been told the trail is closed. Just keep an eye out.
Brief report from Blue Ridge say the trails toward Rockwood also with water on the trails but we are not sure of the conditions.
Pittston Farm is reporting good riding up that way.
Steve went out with the guys this afternoon to check out our trails and said they were all in pretty good shape. SO all in all, not too bad. Now what will Mother Nature bring this week. Safe riding to all!
FEBRUARY 28th UPDATE: The BRC have now reopened 89 north. Water has passed through. They guys have been out marking affected parts of the trails so watch for signage and be safe. Rain tomorrow? Could make more puddles and openings so again, just use caution. As of today, some good riding out there still. And cold weather again Wednesday night. What a weather roller coaster!
