    Trail Condition: Tacky
    Date Posted: 04-29-2013 @ 07:48 PM

    Details:  Great conditions today! Started at the 35W bridge and went west to the 9 mile crossing (couple guys were trying to assemble a bridge to go across however the raft is still out) and then went back east to Columbus road. Very little mud left.

    Trail Condition: Tacky
    Date Posted: 04-29-2013 @ 03:15 PM

    Details:  Sorry folks, not sure the trail is dry as my previous post listed. I rode the trail yesterday evening around 5:00. It was nice and dry then. But then it rained. So, I can only assume it's tacky. My main concern for the post was the status of the raft for the nine-mile creek crossing. Will be more carefull next time so as not to mislead.

    Details:  Conditions are amazing! Less sand than around this time last year since the river didn't overflow(?) during the spring melt this time around, but there is no raft in nine mile creek yet and the downed tree is underwater so you can't cross nine mile... but fun riding nonetheless, minimal sand, go get some!

    Trail Condition: Fat Tires
    Date Posted: 04-27-2013 @ 06:42 PM

    Details:  Ferry Bridge to Nine-mile Creek super tacky and fast. No way to cross Nine-mile until the raft goes in or you want to swim across. There is a 10" dia. tree down about a 1/2 mile east of the ferry bridge(forgot my hand-saw) Picked Fat-Tires from the drop-down options since they have the advantage in the sand but any 2" or wider will do fine.

    Trail Condition: Melting Do Not Ride
    Date Posted: 03-26-2013 @ 02:43 PM

    Details:  The MN River Bottoms doesn't officially close, but the snow is melting and no one should be riding this trail until the snow melts and the trail dries completely. All other metro trails are currently closed.

    Details:  Correcting the no doubt well-meaning post that said "closed". Blooomington parks department. U. S. Fish & Wildlife, and Minnesota DNR, the 3 responsible land managers, never close the trails. Riders should rely on good sense regarding wet conditions.

    Also note that these are multi-use trails, so hiking on flat ground in a flood plain has different connotations to hikers than to mountain bike riders.
    Work is the curse of the riding class.

    Details:  A little slushy in some spots and the occasional patch of ice, but its packed for the most part. Beware of the dirt road going west from the Lyndale trailhead, its deep mud that will leave you and your bike very soggy.

    Details:  I rode with the Michael's Cycles group last night from the Lyndale lot all the way the the current Cedar Ave. Bridge and back. The trail was packed, had a little ice showing through in places and some of the south exposures along the river were burned through to dirt. Get out and ride it!!
