Help keep the trails riding well for you and others by not riding through mud or muddy spots.
Riding on mud wrecks the tread on the trail by leaving ruts that dry into hard bumps. This in turn, contributes to erosion and creates unridable, hard to fix trail surfaces. If you are leaving a visible rut, the trail is too muddy to ride!
Warm weather during spring and fall is especially critical for trails. You can still get out and ride and walk the trails, but be aware of very muddy spots. If you see that they are too wet, dismount your bike, push your bike through the mud spot, and walk on the edge of the trail.
Please don't ride around the mud spots either, this creates an unsustainably wide trail or sometimes even creates two trails in one spot.
Thanks for Riding Dirt, Not Mud.
