    Those sonotubes go into 3+feet of reinforced concrete. It looks well engineered, should be able to take a flood. The soil may wash but not concrete foundation.

    Rode whites reds and blues yesterday afternoon. Overall conditions were dry and tacky, but there were some puddles and mud conditions.
    With last night's rain, (and possibly more today) I'm thinking a few days will be needed for the trails to dry out.

    That looks pretty serious, @jdog you need to step up your game at 6-Miles. :D

    Rode there Thurs/Fri. I'd say it's fine. East side of park is near perfect aside from the overgrowth. The wet spots on White are problem issues that need to be repaired anyway so I don't see anyone causing more damage. And the rain yesterday was short. So I say go ride!

    @Kirt I have some 2x4's and was going to build a ladder bridge for the first white trail mud puddle.
    Should I bother or just let the ranger fix it.

    Was thinking the same. Have some 2x6 decking that I pulled from my deck if you need a better top Glenn. PM me if it's a go from Kirt

    It's good to ride Thursday.
    I rode Wednesday, trails are in good shape.

    Still in good shape despite the Friday monsoon. Some mud puddles here and there, but I imagine they've been in place since April. I'm giving it a 4, perfect for this rainy summer.
