    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!!

    Trail Condition: Tacky
    Date Posted: 04-08-2016 @ 05:59 AM

    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

    Details:  I road the section from the Ferry Bridge almost to the raft. I found it dry to tacky and pretty fast for March. The new trails that run on the North side of the first big clearing had some spots too wet to ride so I walked around them. If you stay on the sections along the river it is good. Snow in the forecast so tonight might be it for a while.

    Trail Condition: Wet Do Not Ride
    Date Posted: 03-22-2016 @ 05:25 AM

    Details:  Hiked out to the trail by the dilapidated boardwalk between 494/Cedar. This is a low lying area and prone to ruts - I observed 60% mud (no standing water) 40 % tacky, there are some fresh ruts IMHO, still needs some drying out, the forecast is not looking favorably the next few days, winter storm watch through Thursday.

    Details:  Thought with the colder temps I'd check it out - but it looks like it'll be muddy for quite a while.

    Details:  With the warm temps on Saturday it's better for you, the trail, and your bike to hit the roads this weekend.

    Details:  Rode Bloomington Ferry Rd to Lyndale Ave this morning and the trail is quite icy. I would recommend studs, it's maybe 85% ice and 15% snow depending on which split you take in areas.

    Details:  Rode Lyndale to Normandale last night and it was ice in the trees and snow pack in the open areas. I'd say 75% ice, 25% pack.

    Details:  Rode Mendota to Cedar Ave Thursday evening at 5. Areas that get any sun at all are basically scary, dark grey and icy. Sheltered sections are nice. Overall, 40% ice, 60% nice.
