How did you use the trail? Mountain bike

A quick ride proved what I had suspected- the trails are dry despite the recent rain, although the river has overflowed its banks and partially flooded the Blow Hole (see photo). It should be pointed out that a few places do retain water, namely the green trail through the swampy area, but they are easy to get around. Wind has blown the leaves off the white trail along the river, allowing for high cornering speeds.
