I was there saturday , the water was higher than ive ever seen it in 20 years, you cant even see the trails , you just have to follow the edge of the higher brush , its easy riding.

Anyone have an update on the water level in the marsh? I know it hasn't rained in a bit.

Was there on Saturday. Water in the regular trails. Side runs are hit and miss.

Pretty sure it's a nice slide still.

Enjoy!

Should be decent then after this spat of rain. Long as the locks stay closed.

Still had water in marsh on Friday. However, it is going down. Only a couple dry spots that can be driven around currently so I would think you are good to go.

I wanted to get off in the marsh but was riding solo with my son and didn't know the trails so I stayed around the lake edge. Can't wait to go out and explore some.

I rode KCOL last Saturday. Went as far as Square Pond and that was dry virtually the whole way. Looked like there was water from Square Pond heading up toward Hole In The Wall. Saw a number of boats head that direction but pretty tough running just to get to Square Pond.
