Rule of thumb at Nockamixon December through March is ride basically only in the early morning or on an extremely cold days where a hard freeze has taken place (teens or lower). Once air temperatures reach the mid-twenties to near 30 degrees and/or there's a decent amount of sun, riding is NOT advised. Our soil contains large amounts of moisture naturally and is still radiating geothermal warmth from this past summer so it doesn't take much. Love your trails - give 'em a break this time of year and ride rockier ground elsewhere.
This past Sunday, the Council worked on a significant trail improvement on the Upper EWR. Stay tuned for more progress to come when riders return in large numbers this spring.
