Just there and it is pretty rough in spots. Only water in some of the trails. The grass has really browned up since the freeze so the running is alot easier. :old_glory:

Just go if you want to go and don't if you don't. If you don't want to run the hill take your kayak, and bring plenty of vagisil.

Rode all day today. Milk bus to square pond to bs hill. Pretty much soaking wet. Some dry skips here and there but wasn't sticky today and I am amazed at how much the water came up since last weekend. Very little dry running today compared to last weekend

Riding tomorrow, we have water in the Marsh? Probably a stupid question with all the rain we've had but you never know where they might be dropping the levels. Thanks
