Wet Trail Policy

This is the time of season when the trail does not absorb as much water as during other times of the year. Riding a wet trail will cause damage to the trail surface. No, one bike will not cause the damage, but many bikes will. Riding a wet trail will also cause damage to your bike (chain, gears and shifting). Please respect the trail and your bike.   If you do encounter a wet spot on the trail, Do Not ride around, ride in the water. By riding around the water, you cause "trail creep". Trail creep will result in total trail closure. In other words, Stay On The Trail.
