Latest Hunters Conditions
Conditions will change for the better Friday...finally-depending on whose forcast you follow...Luckily spring has been very dry.
I like this forcast

Everybody get out and take advantage of these great conditions on Wednesday before the rains forecasted for Thursday come.
Oh, BTW, I stand corrected, there is a drainage ditch along the regarded drop to the old washout. That has dried out nicely now.
That was done by the county. I would be careful about bombing straight onto the bridge. They left some tire-size gaps between the concrete slabs that could cause a real nasty crash if your wheel drops into one.

I hadn't had any problem getting across the small isthmus of debris/soil that spanned the gap before.
The other thing is that the de facto drainage ditch that was along side that downhill to the exwashout is no longer there (filled in so they could drive the excavator down), so that hill may not dry out very well after rains any more.

I got to see what the county did with their big machines. Not too impressed. I was not in favor of this activity (see the March 2006 FOHC meeting minutes on [url=http://www.hunters-creek.org:3txt767x]the FOHC page[/url]). The old road was turning into nice singletrack, but now is all wide again. I always give people the benefit of the doubt, though, so hopefully this will grow back in real quick. I think that is what the pile of wood chips is there for in the parking lot, to put along the side of the now wide road. There was no talk at this week's FOHC meeting about putting wood chips on the trails. That just turns to mud and is a bad idea.
Anyway, definitely heading out there again tomorrow evening, and riding should be great after the work day on Sunday.

Hmmmm you havent looked around here yet to much have you..... be for-warned on what may come of that comment
I strated from the Centerline Rd parking lot and started running in the trails to the left of the sign, looped around back to the parking lot and ran partway into the center trail. The downhills as you get partway in are washing out and slick.

Is that a flower caught in your pedal, or are you just happy to see me?
