    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.

    Trail Condition: Tacky
    Date Posted: 05-03-2016 @ 10:14 AM

    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.

    Details:  Great shape. Many trail users today.

    Gee, if only Bloomington Officials, DNR, and lawmakers would go down there to see all the trail users maybe they would realize how much of a resource it is right now as a natural trail!!! I would be it was one of the busiest trails in the whole state today!!

    Details:  Trail is in great shape and the tree is passable again, not under water. A couple mud spots east of 35w on lower portion but I don't think those isolated spots ever dry out. Staying on high side of trail to indian mounds results in no mud and perfect conditions

    Details:  Rode from ferry bridge to the old house and back. Trail had just a few wet spots. Over all it was in good shape.

    Details:  Trail along the river from Bloomington Ferry trail head to the power line near Cedar is mostly great shape. Usual spring muddy spots. Dozens of fatties were out today.

    Details:  Hiked out to the lowest part of trail between 494 / Cedar on Saturday, muddy but passable by hiking on the sides. Rest of the trail on higher ground was dry to tacky ! Plan to ride 494 to 35 today.

    Details:  Rode from the Bloomington Ferry Road trail head to Cedar ave today. (before the rain) A few wet/muddy spots but in general the trail was excellent. I would say 85% dry 15% damp/tacky
