Latest Hunters Conditions
Rode the trails today and all i have to say is wow. Some of the best rideing this summer. No mud holes some soft areas but nothing you cant handel. When it comes to hunters creek take a page from nike and just do it.
Took a quick look at the washouts on my way back from Jim's swim meet Sat. afternoon. Not too different from last year's Hurricane damage.
Any trail that had a place for the water to drain off to was dry, so if the thunderstorms keep missing the park (looks like the hit E-ville tonight) then the well drained trails should be good to go. If you run into mud holes make sure you ride through them, not around them.
Nope, another swim meet for Jim this weekend. I'm in Rochester now for it.
The riding should be good in E-ville everyone. Get out and enjoy it down there!
I know where it washed out on Warner Hill I usually ride the road there in the early Spring
No doubt there are going to be MAJOR issues in the Park in like maybe the entry trails from the parking lot are gone.
I'm out of town as of this afternoon, sure would like to get out there and assess the damage but Jon I'm sure you are headed that way soon.
I talked to a guy who lives near the park - near Warner Hill/Hunters Creek road. He said Warner Hill Rd. is closed where it crosses Hunters Creek (this is just south/upstream of the park) and they were using snowplows to push off hundreds of tons of gravel that had washed up onto the road there. That section of road only has one lane left, the other half of the road is washed away. He estimates that they got between 5 and 6 inches of rain between 9:30 and 12:30.
I thought about driving out there this morning just to see how the water flows through there with something like this which was close to the rain fall from the hurricanes last year.
Guess we will have some work to do now.
Was great earlier tonight, but now as the weather services says:
"AT 1052 PM EDT... NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DOPPLER RADAR INDICATED FLASH FLOODING FROM THUNDERSTORMS ALONG A LINE EXTENDING FROM ELMA CENTER TO 7 MILES SOUTH OF WALES CENTER... OR ALONG A LINE EXTENDING FROM EAST AURORA TO 9 MILES SOUTHEAST OF EAST AURORA... MOVING EAST AT 5 MPH. RADAR INDICATES RAINFALL RATES OF 1.5 TO 2 INCHES AN HOUR."
And they aren't kidding looking out my windows. 2 inches an hour sounds like a snow storm.
They (the trails )are perfect right now, I rode there Friday afternoon and tried trails I hadn't ridden in a couple of years (mostly the East/West transitionals up by the pipeline) and they are still a mess even as dry as it is now. There really aren't any solutions for them either because of the seeps and large drainage areas that you just can't go around. Hunter's Creek really is much smaller once you actually subtract the occasional (during a drought) trails.
This is shaping up to be a great riding year.
Hunters today was as delicious as one of them $20 steaks. What's even better is watching your buddy go swimming in the creek on his noodle. Trails are sweet, creek is slippery. Quit your crying and go ride you posers!
