it's good, but tons of blowdown 9 years 4 months ago #14183

I got out for a ride on Thursday morning before work, and the trails are in top notch shape right now -- aside from the blowdown on the north/south pale ale trails and on the four rocks section of the flt, and billygoat. I moved as much as I could, but there are some serious trees down.

The trails are dry, though, and in good shape overall. I

i road up there today and there were still a lot of super wet spots on the singletrack. I stuck to the forest roads and they were nice and dry.

everybody is all hyped up to ride the trails but you are just going to chew up the trail with it being so wet. be patient and stick to the dirt roads out there for a while.

My link works?!?!!? Maybe because it logs me in to my hotmail account. How about this:

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&q ... iwloc=addr

Its really east of ASP. Essentially, 219 south. Left on 49 south (Killibuck rd), Left on 417 (Wildwood). Stop at intersection of 9mile and 417.

We are meeting at the Boston/Hamburg Park and Ride first, as usual at 8:30 am (man that will be early after tonights Sabres partying) to consolidate.

Everyone meet us there if you want to carpool. Yes Paul, your car will be utilized for its roominess. Thanks.

Must be mac thing.

Anyways, to get there, go to Salamanca, then get on 86 East/219 South (expressway). Get off the exit for Bradford/219, except go left rather than right. Go to the end and take a right. Then its a few miles (not sure how many) to Vandalia (don't blink) and Nine Mile Road (on your left). Go on that for a while until you get to the forest road where things are starting. That is on your right. It's after the earlier state forest signs you see on your left.

Todd - I could be interested. Your link isn't working though.

Is that intersection is basically 5 miles south from Allegany State park entrance, correct?

I'm in N. Buffalo - It would be better for me to carpool... Bike stowage could be an issue though.

Joe will lead us into the woods-its tricky to find.

If you want to carpool, respond here.

Mtn bike ride afterward (if not here, then Golden Hill nearby-Eville is prob not ready).

I am tentatively planning on going to the nine mile creek work day Saturday, and was thinking of doing some riding there after working. Nine mile is the perfect place to ride when it is wet, since the existing trails are wide snowmobile trails that aren't going to get trashed in wet conditions, especially considering how little use these trails get.

I haven't ridden the existing trails there for a few years now, so no guarantees on what we'll find, but that is part of the fun. I think the snowmobile clubs and illegal ATV use keeps most of them free from blow down.

There`s still snow on the ground this morning, I`m sure it will melt but the trails are going to be really wet. I`m planning on riding the forest roads this weekend. If anybody wants to come down and do that let me know.
