Trail Report

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 13TH TRAIL CONDITION REPORT:
Happy Friday the 13th!  Trail conditions were drier than expected yesterday afternoon in many locations, and characteristically wet in others....With another shot of late afternoon rain following our check of these conditions, today's report is a little difficult to put together.  Without question, sandy trails will be just fine today.  Trails with more of a sand/loam mix may also be surprisingly good.  Those with more clay - like Ridgecrest and those in the Table Rock area will still be muddy.  FOR THIS REASON, TABLE ROCK AREA TRAILS REMAIN CLOSED THIS MORNING - though we will check conditions there as soon as possible and update this report if need be.  
Bottom Line:  Take a chance and explore today, but remember to TURN AROUND IF YOU ENCOUNTER MUDDY CONDITIONS.  Please don't continue through these areas and cause trail damage.
This web page is a great resource for suggested trails to use, as well as those to avoid: https://www.ridgetorivers.org/etiquette/winter-trail-use/
