Condition of Trails: Perfect, Leafy
Trail Ambassador Names: Rich C

Headed in from Whitney and rode the Trail above the rail trail right out of the parking lot - this is sweet - whover built this trail should be commended!
Rode the Red starting at its northernmost point. The weather was beautiful... actually kinda hot and muggy. Encountered a few bikers here and there and chatted about the Trumbull Trail program (gave out biz cards, etc.). Everyone seemed interested and agreed there was some serious fixing up to do throughout the Park.
After the Rusty River, I rode the Upper Red to assess any issues but it was so dry all appeared fine. On the southern side of the fire road, I rode the Red and eliminated the incorrect yellow blazing on a few dual-blazed trees.

Continued on to near the south end where I eradicated the yellow blazing on an incorrectly yellow-blazed trail.  The headed back north via Mullholland Drive, the Rooty trail, swung in toward the River on the Sandy Lake Rim Trail and stopped up at the Canyon to take a few photos.  Another reason was this Park is so awesome!


Finally slogged up to the Yellow in the Central Maze and headed on out. Love the Slick Rock section... Another highlight of the park for sure... I even rode south a bit on the Rail Trail once across the bridge - it was such a pleasant day. Trails were in great shape and the Park was dry and leafy.
