    Details:  Dry but... flooded. Between the Cedar bridge and the 494 bridge the river is over the bank by about 1-2 feet.

    Details:  Trail is in awesome shape from Lyndale to just west of 169 gets a little overgrown there. Pretty good sized puddle about 2-3 miles west of the raft. You can get through it if you don't mind getting your feet wet.

    Thanks to the dude that mows

    The area west of 9 Mile Creek was bone dry. Tree bridge is easily passable.

    Details:  Rode the section west of 35W today. Only a couple muddy spots easily avoidable. The amount of sand was surprising though. Really slowed us down in several spots, much more sandy than last year, maybe the river flooded again this winter? Otherwise a great ride

    Details:  Great conditions with perhaps five easily avoidable puddles between FB & Lyndale. Pontoon is in fine condition. Saw someone cross the tree bridge successfully, though there was still water over some of it in the middle.

    Details:  River is a tad high, overflowing the banks in the low section between 494 and Cedar, trail under water.

    Also, the cement bridge over the culvert between Mendota and 494 partially collapsed, still passable but be aware.

    Details:  Rode Lyndale to Bloomington Ferry and back last night. Tacky goodness! The usually spring puddles and random water flows are there, but its in great shape and not overgrown yet. The start of the forest section from 35 had many dried ruts - please do not ride when it's wet! Also, it appears that the foot bridge is under water, so the raft is your only option right now. I love this trail!

    Details:  Rode from 169 bridge to log bridge and back. Trail was in good shape. There were puddles in the usual spots. I got great traction with the WO.
