I live at the base of Cedro and I can tell you that everything north facing or in the shade still has some snow on it. My driveway has had the same 1/2 inch of ice on it for a week and a half now. The snow is not the problem, its the mud that forms near it. I suppose if you were out early in the morning then everything would still be frozen solid and mud would not be a problem but if you wait until it warms up you will encounter at least one mud bog (and it only takes one good one). You might get lucky in the east mountains and not hit any mud but the south loop in the foothills is a safe bet. Plus it will be at least 5 degrees colder out in the mountains, with lots more shade to make it even colder.

I've been riding Cedro in the evenings and it's still pretty good. There is some mud, but it is more like tacky mud that increases traction than the mud bog, clog up your bike variety. FWIW I've just been doing on out and back on Coyote, so I can't speak to other area.

We did a loop at lone pine over the weekend. I will tell you that as of Saturday we were making the only tracks in the snow from the previous snowfall. I can't see that it has gotten any better since then. The entire loop was 90% covered. I did not mind soo much as I am used to varying terrains...my friend cried about it the whole time. Definitely makes for some technical riding if you enjoy a challenge. The foothills are pretty good too. Pretty tacky as the snowmelt and low temps makes for almost no evaporation. Good luck...as I see it if you are on two wheels it is fun regardless.
