Are dirt bikes/trial bikes allowed on prospector? Came across a few the other night. I'm assuming NO but we didn't say anything as didn't feel it was our place. Maybe it was some locals that work on the trail for all we know......

The surviving builders do use motos to access the trail. If they were being respectful my guess is a bit of a maintenance mission.

Yup. I'd say very respectful

Only allowed in designated areas within Public Land Use Zones. Don't think Prospector is one of those designated areas, but builders using motos for access seems reasonable to me.

Mid afternoon Powderface Ridge- Fun riding with very good conditions, seemed less rubbly than usual on the grind up and on the final descent. Backside has the usual couple of short damp spots, but otherwise firm and tacky. Road was riding fast and smooth for the most part, but recent grading has made for some stretches of tedious loose gravel.
Light rain falling along 66 as I headed home, don't think it will amount to much.

Rode Part of Pneuma today. A bunch of trees have been removed making the trail wider and easier to ride, but not as engaging as it was before. Was that done by MMBTS?

Glad to hear it. The only engaging thing about Pneuma was the ends of my bar engaging with the trees and I can do without that.

You need some narrow "Old School" bars! Wink

Anyone out at Mooseduro?
Wanted to head out to spectate but had too much going on.

Everything in the Mooseduro course was in good shape, near perfect dirt, except for tom snow over to moosepackers, that was a bog a lot of the way.

The grooming was completed by the original visionary with support from MMBTS to evolve the trail for wider bars and trends in todays bike preferences.
