Ridge to Rivers

Winter Trail Use: Stay Off Muddy Trails

Trail Update

FRIDAY, JANUARY 18TH TRAIL CONDITION REPORT: Things are still might squishy out there so we will keep it simple this morning. Please ride, run or hike on sandier trails, or all-weather trails only today - and even on those you will likely encounter shorter sections of mud. When you do, travel through them not around them so as not to widen the trails.

If you encounter longer muddy sections of trail, TURN AROUND. DON'T CONTINUE ON AND DAMAGE THE TRAILS.

For a list of good ...trails to check out today, and others to surely avoid check out this link on our Ridge to Rivers website:
