Just got back home from riding Canal to the concrete bridge. Lots of puddles And especially a quagmire west side of the steel bridge that I walked. Just OK overall. The place is getting beat up and it looks it.
I also saw MORE riders without helmets than with helmets. Unreal. Lots of hikers too.
We rode today and as Johnny said the area by the steel bridge was a mess. The rest of the trail wasn't bad but some mucky (and slippery) puddles seemed to pop up out of nowhere on fast blind turns so it pays to be a bit careful, that and the amount of traffic today on the trail meant taking it a tad slower than usual. Once the leaves are gone and there's less vegetation to soak up the water I think six mile will remain messy and opting for other places will be better. This may be our last ride there for the season.
