A bit wet, Heckletooth, Larison, Middle Fork of the Willamette and Dead Mountain are riding well.

Oakridge has been replenished with nice cool spring showers and mixed sun the past couple of weeks. The weather brought a lot of moisture to Alpine Trail, Hardesty, Goodman Creek, Eula and other trails to our west, making them a bit too wet to ride at the moment. To the east Heckletooth and Dead Mountain also received significant rainfall but are riding well due to their excellent drainage and southern aspects. I rode Dead Mountain today and found it to be a bit greasy, but there was no deep mud or significant puddling, and found it to be very tasty.

Larison Rock and the Middle Fork of the Willamette are also riding well with wet soil, but little mud or standing water.

Youngs Rock is now clear of trees thanks to the USFS, Derrick, and other volunteers. Thanks!  I bet it is riding good too.

The Diamond Park pump and jump track is also riding well after recent work parties to mowed the grass and reshaped some of the bumps and jumps.

North Salmon Creek also received a lot of help from the USFS and volunteers over the weekend. More details to come there.
