Current Trail Conditions

As every other mountain biker in our area I have recently had the bug to ride on the trails more than I can tell you.  In fact Tuesday just to be in the mountains I climbed up the dirt road below the North Ogden Divide. Is this the funnest ride in the entire world? No way, but I know that I can ride there even when its wet and not damage the road because its covered in rocks.  This is not the case with a lot of the other very cool trails we have in our area, I guess the point is be very careful where your riding this time of the year so were not the user group damaging the trails we love so much.  If it looks to muddy or your sinking in throw the towel in for the day, countless spring and summer days are just around the corner.
