I'm getting ready to head to Brown County for a few days with a bunch of friends next week and I was curious as to how quickly the trails there recover after a good rain. I see there were been some trail closures during and after the last heavy rains and want to gauge whether we'll be able to enjoy the trails or not. The weather report for the next seven days seems reasonable enough, but we want to make sure the 6.5 hour trip isn't in vain.

Any info would be greatly appreciated!

I just checked out the Brown County Mountain Biking FB page and learned Hobbs Hollow will be under trail work the weekend we're there. That's a bit of a bummer. I've ridden at BCSP a couple of times but never got a chance to hit that one. C'est la vie.

Most trails there seem to drain pretty well. I would think that after a decent rain, the trails would be good 24 hours later. I'm not sure about this time of year, but last summer I rode the morning after a huge downpour and the trails were mostly dry.

Sounds good. The weather seems to be shaping up nicely after the weekend so hopefully we'll be good to go. Looking forward to quality time out there instead of the usual hit and run.

I'm local to the area and road today. Trails were great. Everything is green and sucking water out of the trails so there drying great. Hobbs is trashed after the early storms. Schooner was great today. I got done and home when some more rain started moving in.

Is Hobbs Hollow worth checking out in its current state?

FWIW, the trip to Brown County was flat out awesome. Trails were pretty dry on Thurs. Got a thunderstorm Thursday evening and the trails were a bit slick in some places during the afternoon on Friday, but drying out. By Saturday afternoon, the trails were fast and tacky, just perfect. Logged a hair over 70 miles. Unfortunately Hobbs Hollow was still closed, but that gives a reason to go back.

Nice. The weather is really variable this time of year. Hobbs is fun, but you definitely want it in good shape. I rode it last year the day after a huge thunderstorm and had to take it easy due to branches being down, even though the trail tread was in good shape.
