Was given intel in the parking lot last night that FG and toothless were pretty good and not muddy at all.

We had gone out to ride shoulda on PM as we were told it was GTG (different forum). Unfortunately I disagree with the report. It was still kind of wet. Maybe half of it was GTG. I'd give it 3-4 more days IMO.

rode Fish Creek last night and it was good. A few soft spots but majority was really good. I did not ride any single track from Shannon terrace to Bebo grove so I don't know how it is on the north side single track.

One point to note, I did see the Game warden twice, in his big truck driving around on the paved section. I wonder if they are looking for poachers, booze or people walking their dogs without a leash?

Thanks Kenny. Was thinking of those trail(s) for today. Guess maybe I'll just do my usual "spring training" ride that takes in pretty much all of the Bowmont trails, which are in perfect shape.

That "Other" forum is already lite up with merlin G2G and only kinda wet reports , the mass hoards of merlinistas are itching to lay claim to first ride out instas and " high five bra " season starter .

Looks like we're set to get a decent amount of rain tomorrow so hopefully they aren't too excited to pose their bikes at the bench (which I definitely do, all the time)

Jean Guy 95% dry. Watch the few icy patches on the roll in from the top.

I could see people poaching fish out of the creek. Hunting in the park is definitely going to get you in a world of hurt. It's also that time of year where teenagers decide to light hills on fire so

You can fish in Fish Creek. I ride down there fairly often in the evenings once the kids are in bed and always see them driving around. I must be part their nightly patrol. 2 years ago I saw some CPS officers riding their horses on the single track doing who knows what.

Family Guy up and down this morning with the kids. Great conditions. Spitting rain on the descent at 1pm and another rider who came down as we climbed said it was wet snow up top

You're correct, June 16 is when basically everything else opens up again for the summer.

Tuesday afternoon ride:
Bowmont- Almost completely dry. Fast hardpack, or dusty.
Paskapoo- Excellent overall. A few minor wet spots. Avoid the perennially wet lower Judo Fish. (or is it Boardwalk?)
12 Mile- Still soft and wet for 100m above and below the "glacier" crossing. Otherwise very good.

FG is great from the Billy Dog entrance down, as is Billy Dog, toothless, and shoulda is great too (except one short spot near the top) and the very bottom along the road.

Lots of road climbers out the last few nights. Life is good Beer

I 'heard' prospector is good as well?
