I was actually considering getting out there early tomorrow morning (really early- like 6AM) but would hate to get down there (about an hour ride away) only to find the trails in super muddy conditions. The weather channel made it look like the hard rain missed the Middletown area- can anyone confirm this?

On a different note, anyone up for an intermediate Mahlon ride this Thursday evening?

It poured!

But to tell the truth it needed it? I was there a few days ago and it was SO dry making some of the more technical climbs tough. I bet you it'll be great tomorrow. It was dry today and looks dry for tomorrow. Will probably do the Huber-Hartshorne loop myself, later though.

Hartshorne was dry on Friday... then it poured so...

I figure with the nice warm day today the trails will be good to go tomorrow. I am hoping to get a ride in tomorrow. When do you think Chimney Rock will be okay? Wednesday without more rain?

Hartshorne is good to go

Anybody know the conditions at Hartshorne as of July 1? I know things are way swampy down here in central jersey right now.:madmax:
Rode Hartshorne and Huber this morning. Both are in excellent shape, as far as trail dryness. There are two blowdowns in Hartshorne though; Grand Tour is blocked just north of the power lines, and there's a passable tree down on Rocky Point. Looks like a tornado went through there mid-week.

What? You couldn't clear that tree?

Kidding.:D I was there a couple days ago and saw one of those trees. Frankly, suprised they're still there. Whoever's in charge of trail maintenence over there does a great job. Stuff is usually out of there by the next day or two, no matter how big the obsticle.

Rode Hartshorne and Huber Thursday afternoon (7/6). Both places were quite dry, considering the latest round of rain. Wet only in the usual spots.

The trees are still down on Grand Tour and Rocky Point, with additional blowdowns on another section of Rocky Point as well. Some serious chainsaw work will be needed.
