PLEASE DO NOT USE MUDDY TRAILS.
If / when your tires/feet/hooves are sinking into mud or you're consistently hitting large patches of soft mud, it's time to call it a day and turn around. Why? Because you're causing significant trail damage that can take months to remediate. We know you're itching to get out, but please be a responsible trail user and use trails a) when the ground is frozen or b) after it's had a chance to dry out. Trail reports are here and change daily. We do our best to keep them updated, but can't ride 50 miles of trail system every day. Thank you to those who send updates and help us keep trail users apprised of conditions.
