Flafonta, we actually do not know if Priest Rock is rideable or in decent shape on Wednesday afternoon. This is just too much rain with no letup.Ebo said:Priest Rock (fireroad climb) which is above Lexington Reservoir will be open. Holds up really good and used to be my winter ride when I lived in the area. Coming down Overgrown (limekiln) should be alright too. Siera Azul Openspace..check it out.. http://www.openspace.org/preserves/maps/pr_sierra_azul.pdf A good ride would be to go up Priest Rock, right turn on Limekiln up to the top, turnaround and blast down Limekiln all the way to Lexington.

Sure it will be rideable. It will suck like nobody's business and soft parts of the trail will get damaged as well. There's an old mudslide there too and a washed away trail too so it could be dangerous. No trail is waterproof and it's good to give it a day to drain when there's this much rain.Ebo said:It will be ridable unless there is an earthquake and the land slides into the ocean. I've ridden these trails (fireroads) many times during incredibly wet and raining conditions. True, there is a lot of climbing, but it's a good ride when Skeggs or Demo are far worse and maybe need to be left alone.
