LOCAL TRAIL CONDITIONS ARE NOW UPDATED VIA TWITTER You can use Twitter to get updates texted directly to your phone. Ask your computer savvy friend.. (s)he' ll explain it to you. http://twitter.com/Metro_IMBA
As with all trails, DO NOT RIDE WHEN TRAILS ARE WET OR CLOSED.
Why are the trails closed?
Sustainable trails are built so that water will run across the trail, not down it. When water runs down the trail it focuses the water and increases erosion. Riding wet trails creates ruts that will focus the water and increase erosion.
Riding wet trails also increases cupping of the trail surface and causes puddles to get deeper and wider, both of which slow the recovery of the trail.
Trails are closed during the freeze/thaw cycle in the fall and spring. During these times, trails are especially susceptible to significant damage.
Trails may also be closed after significant weather events, or if there are unsafe trail conditions. When trails turn into maintenance headaches, land managers start to consider closing trails for good... PLEASE do your part to ensure that we have access to great trails by riding responsibly. Together we can keep these mountain biking opportunities available for generations to come!

The Oak Hill trails are particularly subject to flooding in heavy rains and may take several days to recover.
