Trail Conditions/Grooming

5/15/19 Things are melted out with the usual wet spots. The trails near Yankovich are best. The area near West Ridge has some jumpable puddles as well as creative crossing options. Baseline, Beaver slide, etc. are the usual swamps. Midnight Sun Express and some lower sections of Big Whizzy are soaked. The commuter trail behind the farm is soaked. There is one trail redirect, where the equinox trail comes off Farmer's Loop above Ballaine, about 1/4 mile later it normally dips down into a large depression that is filled with water and impassable. Use old Equinox reroute to the left to connect back up with Skarland.
