The main 10 mi loop was swampy upon entering.
I diverted to the inner and outer loops which were both dry with pockets of small mud patches. I ride a fat bike that rolled right though. My friend rode his Standard 2" wheels that still made it through with little issue.
However the mud patches were so condensed that a rider could easily ride right around the edges to minimize exposure.

Rode the race loop last night. There were sections that were pretty dry. However, other sections were VERY muddy and wet. It is very hit and miss in the race loop area. I have not rode the upper sections yet this year, so it could be drier up there.

How are the trails after all the rain? Thinking of riding tomorrow evening.

It depends on more than just when the last rain storm was. We try to build the trails so that they shed the water, so once they get dry in the spring, they can usually handle a rain event and be ready the next day. Sprague was pretty good Sunday, except for a few seasonal seep areas and a couple of places where there isn't a place to drain to. So it should be good to go for Wednesday's group ride.

What's the general rule for this time of year after some rain? Give it a day or two? Upcoming forecast looks a bit wet (Tuesday, Sunday, Monday).

Sprague is in great shape. Still some wet areas on the west side but they are limited in extent. When you encounter these, remember to ride straight through the wet areas, don't go around them. The great turnout for the work day Sunday also went a long way to improving conditions. Thanks to everyone who came out.
