I just need someone to do some trail recon for me in Pisgah. It's not a big deal, really - you just have to travel throughout Pisgah and find me the most rideable trails over the next 4-5 days.

Great. Thanks, in advance.

I wish I could help you out with this one. I'll be spending the next week suffering through a vacation in Cancun. I'll be happy to check out some of the local trails while on vacation.:thumbsup:

Judging by the mess of slop and slush in my backyard, There are no trails worth riding in Pisgah. I've never seen the ground this wet. To top it off, my basement has flooded!

Good time to catch up on the Honey-Do's or procrastinated projects.

Still, really? I thought Pisgah was pretty much a rain forest, always wet. Surely by Mon/Tues there would be some higher elevation trails as firm as they typically are...no?

Yes still, the ground is very wet from a normal amount of rain and at the higher elevations there's still snow on the ground. It melts some during the day and then refreezes at night. In the winter the drying comes from very dry blowing air and some evaporation on sunny days. We've had nights cold enough to keep the water frozen, higher than normal humidty, and very few sunny days since the snow 10 days ago.

With the slow melt of the snow it's like we've had 10 straight days of moderate to heavy rain....
