    Trail Condition: Tacky
    Date Posted: 06-02-2012 @ 08:50 PM

    Details:  It was as tacky and slick as a Vince Neil pickup line in The Cre heyday yesterday. The shady areas of the novice track were wetter than anywhere else. A few sloppy corners but otherwise nice.
    Almost got flattened by a startled doe in the beautiful meadow at marker 32 Now I know how the chipmunks feel when running in front of me. The armored area just past 36 had standing water. First time I have seen that.

    Details:  Try again... Elm Creek will be open this afternoon. There's still a few known problem spots, but maybe it's best that they are revealed so then we can fix 'em! Still, tread lightly if you encounter soft areas.

    Details:  Trail is closed due to soft sections reported yesterday. All questions need to be in the discussion area for this trail, not the trail conditions. We will update as soon as the trail opens.

    Details:  Please note: Elm Creek has been closed again.

    Riders reported that too many sections of the trail were still too soft to ride. EC is going to require some addtional time to dry out.

    Details:  I rode Elm Creek this evening after learning 3Rs opened it. The trail is borderline tacky/wet. If you have a road bike, you may want to stick to the tarmac. But, If you do go on the trail, ride with caution. It is mostly tacky but there are some slippery spots that look tacky but are a bit slick. Also, there are puddles in the low areas and small trees crossing the trail in places. So, ride with care and thank 3Rs for allowing the trail to be opened today.

    Details:  The Park District has decided to keep Elm Creek (and Murphy-Hanrehan) closed through the weekend. With no rain the earliest the trails would be open is Monday. If it's rains more it'll probably be a little longer.

    Stand by for updates before heading to either trail system.

    Details:  Just received an email from 3RPD. The trail is closed. There is a lot of rain out there, this could take a few days to dry out.

    Details:  The west and NW side got the super-size dose of soaking rain.

    Elm Creek is sure to be very wet and closed.

    Trail Condition: Dry
    Date Posted: 05-18-2012 @ 01:01 PM

    Details:  First time out here, and what i hit was dry for the most part. A very few tacky spots. A lot of sand in the sunny parts of the trail. Its getting hot so water up. The trail could use a good pruning. Took quit a few branches to the face and arms and legs.
