    Trail Condition: Tacky
    Date Posted: 07-25-2015 @ 07:59 AM

    Details:  The DR mower is back in action after a brief hiatus, repaired and ready to rip.

    The 2015 trail mowing sessions have begun, first part was completed last night. The trail has been mowed from Ferry Bridge to the Walton Woods.
    I plan to finish the remainig two sections this weekend.

    Trail Condition: Tacky
    Date Posted: 07-23-2015 @ 07:06 AM

    Details:  Most of the trail is good to go, looks like some nice folks helped to clear any downed trees and branches from recent storms. Large puddles every 1/4 mile or so but they can be avoided. I will say that once I rode about a mile from the 9-mile creek foot bridge, I encountered some sort of itchy plant that was as tall as me and had nearly taken over the trail. It was so bad I ended up turning around at this point only 2 1/2 miles from the trailhead. May be better to start at Bloomington Ferry bridge vs. 35W for this reason.

    Details:  Trail is fine, with only a few puddles remaining - and those are easily avoidable. Sand is still somewhat packed in most places. Grass is getting pretty shaggy.

    Trail Condition: Damp
    Date Posted: 07-08-2015 @ 10:15 PM

    Details:  Rode section between Lyndale Ave. access and log bridge, a few large puddles and mud slicks in the usual areas but mostly tacky/dry. Past the log bridge, "prairie areas" are dense with tall grass and nettles. Would recommend sunglasses to protect eyes from clouds of gnats.

    East of Lyndale ave. access point still very damp with large areas of soft mud and puddles. Personally I would let it dry out for another day or two.

    Details:  I spoke with one of the workers doing the Cedar Ave bridge work this afternoon and he said we'd be able to use the bridge again this Friday.

    Details:  Very beautiful night at the river bottoms. Mostly dry to tacky with some large puddles/muddy spots that are easy to avoid. As another rider mentioned, the weeds (especially in the prairies) are so overgrown you can barely see the trail and they will brush up against your fork and legs. Be sure to call out that you're coming around a corner so you don't cause an accident. Enjoy!

    Details:  Trail has some muddy areas but not bad. The one thing is that the weeds are tall and ready to make you itch. It's a jungle in spots. We hope to get it mowed soon.

    Details:  6/01/15 I had a great ride today with my 15 YO nephew from Shakopee to the Bloomington parking lot. I would call it dry but there are small mud/wet spots. I forgot how fun this flat twisty turny ride can be. It was a great day to be out in nature.

    Details:  Weeds are about ankle height while on the bike in a few places. A few clouds of bugs to chew on, but not too bad. Get riding while the gettin's good.
