    My first chance to contribute and I was busy working on getting my wife a Myka Sport Specialized!!! Rode Saturday afternoon (11.75 miles), at the new trail in Cave City with the wife (since we were close). Worked up and planted the garden Sunday....... sprayed for weeds and bugs today!!!

    Got rid of all the rest of the face slappers on the East side to finish out what Gary and Ry started. Trail is like a dream now! Get out there if you can ladies and gentlemen. Peace.

    How bad will the trail be affected by the rain this week? It will be my first time riding this trail...

    It's rained 2" at my house today, and started again (I'm 15-30 minutes from the trailhead). The east side will be a couple of days drying if it stops tonight. The west will be unrideable, but knuckleheads will ride all of it tomorrow. If rain stops, your best ride will be at Montgomery Bell, which is also closer.

    Your best shot at an open trail around here will be Montgomery Bell.

    Another option would be AEDC. It drains really well.

    Hi, I live in Southern Indiana and we are traveling to Hermitage to visit our grandson this wknd. I love to ride Lock 4 when I visit. Honest opinion, will it be worth it to bring my bike? Is there any chance that, at least the East side, could be ridable Sat or Sun morning? I may bring it anyway, just in case, but any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    There is certainly a chance the eastside will be ok if we don't get anymore rain. it'll be slick most likely, but rideable.

    I drove over and checked the trails this afternoon. The normal wet spots near the trailhead were not wet. If we don't get any more rain the trails should be in great shape tomorrow.

    East side is looking good! Held up very well to the rain. Me and Gavin cut out all the face slappers on the lakesides as well. Should be perfect tmrw.

    We'll check it. With the previous cycle of weather, like this last, it was a huge mess so I haven't been down there this week.

    Rode the west side today. #2 is in good shape except for the approach to the L-bridge at the end. It is rutted and soft. There are several low hangers scattered.

    #3 is drying, with exception. The area beyond the early log-jump is rutted and soft, but drying. Beyond there, at the approach to the first bridge (adjacent to #2's L-bridge) it is a rutted, water-standing mess. The trail is soft and rutted from that bridge to just beyond the next bridge. The approach to and the corner following the last pair of bridges is pretty messy. There appears to be and have been considerable riding in spite of the ribboning off as "Closed".

    The east side is most excellent.

    Get thou some.

    It was torn down when I came through about 4 yesterday, I went down and checked it out then came back and put the tape back up.

    Maybe that bicycle chain barrier isn't such a bad idea after all.

    Saw horses or lockable chain with a notice would probably be the most effective. We've had pretty good success at PW with a physical barrier and signage. It wont stop everyone but it may be enough to allow those sections to dry faster. A few tires is not a big deal but when someone tears down the tape barrier then people who dont know better will ride it thinking it is back open. I think a big help would be having something physically in the way that makes you get off the bike and go over.

    Of course something like this may depend on the city's blessing or not. I am not sure how involved the city is in the park there.

    Someone found a body at lock 4, wrapped in a tarp, and thought it was you? I dunno. I don't think anyone would do that to you. Apparently some people get mad when you're funny. I just laugh.

    They're mostly true (except for the road bike thing). No worries.

    There was a tarp, sleeping bag, and misc. other stuff in the woods between the parking lot and trail #15 a couple of years ago. A bit of a hubbub was made about it. Kinda like the bear cub. Don't let it bother you...unless that was your stuff.

    East and West side are good to go. A few slightly slick areas, and a few low hanging limbs here and there, but very good overall! Finally. Welcome back West side. Darrel if you're reading this, please change the status to all open. Thanks! Peace!

    Great fun out there. Although I did see a couple walking into the woods as I was leaving. Maybe we will get another sighting of the elusive "nakedus bootum"

    It's better, but a bunch of face-slappers on the west. I finally got tired of it and went bezerk on the last couple on 3. I got over it. It's hot.

    We've gotten 3/4" of rain in H'ville this afternoon, so I expect it'll be sloppy at least until tomorrow afternoon if the trails got the same. The maps show the rain being very spotty. Ryan's out of town, so if anyone's been out since 4:00, please post conditions.

    I just got up here, and yes, the trail got dumped on. It's pretty sloppy. I rode 1 and then headed back to the parking lot. It should probably be avoided until tomorrow afternoon. If it does not rain any more it should be OK by then.

    A few wet spots out there but nothing that should keep it from being ridden. Most of the trail is in great shape.

    I saw that damage to the stand. It looks like in doing so, they forgot to hit the brakes and ran through the guard rail. Also looked like they caught the big concrete block. Probably some kid running around town with some damage to the front end of their truck.

    Trail was in decent shape this morning. Some soft areas on 2 and 3, but I expect it's drying by now. Cleared the leaner at the top of the rise on 11 and the high downed one before the moguls on 2, so all should be clear.

    Thanks brother. Just left, and 2 and 3 still have a few soft spots, but nothing that bad. Trail is in excellent shape overall. Still gotta get those face slappers on the West side, and a few on the East. I'll try and get out there tomorrow or Thursday and knock em out. Peace.
