Have to Steal the Opportunity to Mountain Bike
I had heard some mixed reviews about the trail conditions around the area, so I chose Lost Valley today. Not only is it one of the quickest places to dry out, but it's also the place with the fewest users on a really nice day...unlike Castlewood or Greensfelder.
It was mostly a good choice. The only water/mud I encountered came from seeps on random hillsides. You can see from my photo that it only resulted in a bit of splatter. Otherwise, the trail was awesome. Inexplicably, I had two Fred moments...I plunged my right foot into the creek on the way into the trail, and I plunged my left foot into the creek on the way out. Yes, I was furious.
