Wadsworth Falls SP
Report Type: TA Report:
Trail Name: Wadsworth Falls SP
Trail Conditions: Good, clear and dry
Observations/Information: Rode Wadsworth Saturday afternoon. The trails were in good shape, clear and with a few exceptions very dry, even sandy in many places- particularly the corners. Amazing how dry the soil is given the winter we just had. Even the leaves are off the trail in many places (see photo). Much evidence of log clearing and saw work- I cleared a few they mised. There is still some mud on the red trail below four corners, and some rutting due to running water on the carriage roads (pink leading down to the yellow trail), as Mark alluded to in the last report. You need to be on the lookout for the ruts, as some are deep enough to take you down if you hit them unaware.
I crossed paths with a few other riders, including a guy wearing a very hip, and very retro purple Pearl Izumi zipper top with bright green accents, and many hikers as well. I gave two of them directions to the big falls. There was also a group in the picnic area, dressed in medieval garb and poking each other with foam-tipped pugil sticks.
Trails at Wadsworth are in great shape, if maybe a little too dry. Just watch out for the pugil sticks.
