I think lots of folks are staying away due to trail conditions. I guess there is still some work to be done after the ice storms. Lots of folks were probably preriding the Womble since there is a race coming up too.
You must have been on the red trail, it was the worst of all of them. You should give the yellow trail a shot, it was not bad. We stayed in the Blanchard springs camp ground last weekend, that creek was really nice after riding all day in 95 + degree temperatures.FlynG said:We rode yesterday. We put in at the parking area on the right side of Hwy 5 which was check point 2 during Syallmo's Revenge. We left from there intending to do the 2nd half of the race course. But by Check point 3 we were so tired of moving logs and large branches and our shins were raw from briars and thistle slaps that we bailed and just rode down the road to Blanchard Springs Campground. Sitting in the cold creek water, eating lunch and having a Diamond Bear brew made things all better.
These are very nice trails that need attention to bring them back to their former condition. Are there any local groups trying to maintain these trails?
There were numerous downed trees that need chainsaw attention, but it is my understanding that a person must have special approval from the Forest Service to use one.
You are right Todd, and I will get over there. Maybe next Sat. if Raz is headed that way.THenne said:Hey you still owe some volunteer time over here!
We went from Blue on the hwy parking lot to Yellow and bailed where it junctioned with the Red. Our plan was to ride the Red loop from there and back downt the Yellow to Blanchard Springs Campground. If Red is worse than what we were hitting, it must be extrememly bad.Single Track MTBer said:You must have been on the red trail, it was the worst of all of them.

The place defiantly needs some volunteer help from what I could tell. If I lived around there I defiantly would be involved.
