    Trail Condition: Fat Tires
    Date Posted: 12-22-2012 @ 07:35 AM

    Details:  Rode I-35W west to Hwy 169 and back yesterday on mtb with studs because of icy reports. Pretty uncomfortable and bumpy in many places, but lots of pretty good riding too in wooded sections. Trail needs a new dump of 6" to fill in rutted and bumpy areas. Passed 3 fatties on my way out and wished I had done the same. Not as icy as I expected, so fat would have been better. Heard about 9mile crossing...great job trail guys!

    Trail Condition: Icy

    Details:  Emphasis on Don's previous bumpy comment, but the fresh snow filled in some of it. Slick in a few spots, some drifted snow too.

    Details:  Rode from Ferry Bridge to Hwy 77 and back. Bumpy, Icy, and packed, with that order of emphasis.
    Work is the curse of the riding class.

    Trail Condition: Icy
    Date Posted: 12-16-2012 @ 06:34 PM

    Details:  I rode from Hwy 169 to I35W and back this afternoon. Trail is 30% icy/30% crusty snow, the rest pretty decent.

    Footprints from hikers when snow was slushy are now frozen, making it bumpy ride much of the way.

    I rode it on my 29'er skinnny-tired hardtail with no problems.

    Details:  Ferry Bridge to Nine-mile Creek was snow-shoed and packed nice. Nine-mile to almost Cedar was packed down by fat tires only.

    Details:  Rode from 35 west towards 169 last night around 7:00. Once on the single track, the trail was decently packed. It definitely got squirrely if you wandered off to the sides.

    Details:  Walked down by 169 for a mile or so at lunch today, trail seemed packed down pretty well despite no tire tracks. I'm bringing my Fatbike next time.

    Then over to Black dog-

    Then the hills/ mounds-

    Details:  Trail is in great shape between Indian Mounds trailhead and Bloomington Ferry. Do beware of the stinging nettle, though. It seems most prevalent in the bluffside section between Indian Mounds trailhead and Lyndale/35W trailhead/boat launch.
