Started at 8am this morning. Doesn't really affect riding mtn bikes unless you have a motor attached and/or you were planning on having a camp fire or smoking while you rode....

The full Order is here. Basically, no campfires, smoking outside of a vehicle, motorized off forest roads (no motos allowed on trails), etc.

The fire guys say they don't think we'll go into closure this year as they're already seeing moisture/buildup to the east on some afternoons and are hoping they set up and give us the much needed moisture before the fuels reach the level that we start closures.

Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope for the rain to come.

Cheers,

Kerry

Any more updates... seems like we're getting sprinkles up there. Saturday's ride was hot, but the trail had been swept clean by rain at some point.

Almost 4"? That's awesome. I had the day off so have been in town. Would like to see how the rain has treated those climbing turns/berms on the new trail. You still going out there tomorrow morning? If so, maybe Ryan and I can join you mid-morning. Maybe see if we can pack those turns down.

Actually up to 4.02 inches at 1845. Gotta see the trail after some rain. I assume S14 got dumped on also - maybe mtbike52 has a report?. I should be down there between 0730 and 0800.

Nothing like 4 in. Just a nice steady rain. Around 3/4 in. over this way. Love it! From the sound of the thunder, Cedro might have got more.

The remodeled sections of KotM were in much better shape at 8am this morning than they were the last couple of weeks. But still fluffy, and in a few places, deep fluff. So, it could've used more rain, but I don't know about 4". That might've wreaked some havoc.

The descent was a lot firmer, too.

Ditto in Taos

Same with the Carson. It'll be nice to have a campfire again.
