Can someone give me some updated conditions on say Outback, Rum Village, Potato Creek... ect? I would like to make a trip up that way this weekend and don't want to waste the time.

Those trails are a little West of me, so I can't say for sure. The region has had quite a bit of rain last week. Considering Winona was muddy on Saturday, I would suspect other area trails are a bit wet.

NIMBA would have the most up to date information. I've seen a few people post here from North West Indiana so someone else should chime in.

Another place to check is here:

There was a decent amount of rain last week in South Bend. It's finally starting to dry out, but I have not made it over to the trails after work to see how the trails are doing yet.

Potato seems to have a few spots that'll stay slick after it rains, but there was maint there last weekend. Rum's so packed down that it'll dry out a bit better than Potato, but watch the roller coaster after a rain. Even if it's dry, the sand will migrate to the bottom after a rain.

I'd say watch the radar for tomorrow & depending if we get hit with thunderstorms. Forecast has it at a 40% chance. If it isn't too heavy, or misses the area entirely - it'll be fine. And even if Rum and Potato get rain, TK Lawless in Michigan's just over the border too.

I just got back from two weeks in Alaska and had my first ride back in the Chicago area this morning. It was muuudddy and so hot I thought I was going to melt.
