rode the park 4 times last week and it is drying out nicely. avoid the pink/blue trail that heads north from the picnic table,horrible mud!
thank you to those that are doing the construction in the park. it really looks amazing, especially at the washout. might want to consider renaming the area as the nice concrete bridge is actually so much safer to ride now compared to the old drain. once the main access road really dries out we'll be able to bomb down it and actually ride right across the new bridge without slowing down to mirkwood and the red trail. thank you again.

Great conditions tonight (4/27). Still a few problems spots and the bike came back muddy (always ride through, not around!), but most of the dry trails were, well, dry. The further north you go, the wetter. I am sure trails from the lower (north) trailhead are in bad shape near the boardwalk.

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.

You might want to read the posts at the following link and reconsder your riding habits. The trails at Hunter's Creek are very sensitive in the spring and as many of us have learned through our own mistakes, there is a significant long term benefit to waiting for the trails to dry before riding them. There are plenty of trails that are ridable early in the spring, but not at Hunter's, just ask and I'm sure people will happy to help you find the best places to ride based on the current weather. For example the Ellicotteville trails are usually the first to dry out in the sping and are currently dry and ridable.

Just ran through Hunter's a few hours ago, much of the trails are very wet. Not sure what the individual trail names are, but the red blazes are in better shape the the very very muddy silver blazes.

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.

As of this evening, the trails are in real good shape at Hunters. The geography keeps changing a bit with the storms. There is a very big 'blow down' on the middle red trail. ENJOY! :D

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

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!
