It sounds pretty dry:

POTENTIAL FOR RAPID FIRE GROWTH EXISTS ACROSS THE SOUTHERN TIER
AND PORTIONS OF THE FINGER LAKES REGION OF WESTERN NEW YORK THROUGH
MID AFTERNOON TODAY....

.SOUTH TO SOUTHEAST WINDS WILL OCCASIONALLY GUST PAST 30 MPH
THROUGH EARLY AFTERNOON...ESPECIALLY OVER HIGHER ELEVATIONS AND
NEAR LAKE ERIE. THE WIND COMBINED WITH RELATIVE HUMIDITY IN THE 15
TO 25 PERCENT RANGE AND DRY FINE FUELS WILL LEAD TO AN ELEVATED
THREAT FOR RAPID FIRE GROWTH AND SPREAD. CLOUDS WILL BE ON THE
INCREASE AND WINDS WILL DIMINISH AS THE AFTERNOON WEARS
ON....LESSENING THE THREAT.

OOPS!!!! I jumped the gun a bit, but there is still hope for good early season riding. I hiked South Pale Ale and Billy Goat. They both had sections with a considerable amount of snow pack left (4-6"). There are a couple trees down on South Pale Ale. I will hike more and give reports soon.

My experience has been that when we lose the snowpack rapidly the trails are freakin awesome until the leaves start to peak out. That is exactly what happened this past week. If we do not get much rain it will stay good. I will hike tomorrow after work and give a report in the evening.

Seasonal roads are still ice covered. Whig St. is clear because they plowed it all winter.

Why would you need a dog to sniff out the trails? :lol:

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
