    Trail Condition: Melting
    Date Posted: Yesterday @ 08:49 AM

    Details:  It will be very melty today.


    Please stay off the Theo trails until temps go back below freezing for a day or so.


    These freeze / thaw / freeze scenarios is when the dirt trail below the snow is most susceptible to damage.


    Steve for the Theo Crew.

    Trail Condition: Packed
    Date Posted: 11-20-2014 @ 07:31 PM

    Details:  Trail is nicely packed and wide. There are tiny patches of ice here and there throughout the trail to give you a nice zing. No studs needed. First time for me on the South of Glenwood trail and it was great! A real roller coaster.

    Trail Condition: Icy
    Date Posted: 11-19-2014 @ 05:03 PM

    Details:  Conditions could be called packed with sections that are icy OR icy with the majority being packed.

    Whatever you call it, there are definitely some sections that have concealed icy spots. Or unconcealed bare ice. Still, the majority is well-packed. But even with studded tires, I found some slick and dicey spots.

    North 40 is probably the iciest. Glenwood seemed better, but there are still a few spots that might catch you off-guard if you aren't riding somewhat easy style.

    Details:  I would definitely recommend studs for the new loop. I survived a couple laps without, but there was some puckering going on, and no established crusty edge to keep you from skittering off down the slope. One climb near the southern end of the southbound leg that I couldn't make it up.

    But still awesome!

    Glenwood, with one minor exception near the picnic table, was solid even without studs.

    Details:  As of 11:00 this AM, the north loop was 60% packed snow, 40% ice ribbon. Ice was frozen nice and hard. Those that do not want to slip on ice will definitely want studs. Those that like to drift a bit, it's perfect. The crusty stuff on the edge will usually catch you before you go down.

    Details:  Theo has been checked.


    All sections north of Glenwood Ave are open and ready to ride.


    Unfortunately the new section south of Glenwood remains closed. Too many slick spots that will become a rutted mess if ridden.


    To those Steef saw riding the closed trail....please get off and stay off.

    Trail Condition: Closed
    Date Posted: 10-28-2014 @ 09:49 PM

    Details:  So what's the deal, I couldn't get to the single track trail today. They had the path to the trail closed. Is there another way into the single track or is it closed as well?

    Details:  Leaves, leaves and more leaves to keep you on your cornering toes.

    Was out this morning. Hella fun, but Glenwood was taped off. Bummer. When will it reopen? With the north trail closure happening tomorrow, just wondering so I can plan my riding this week.
