    Over 3" of rain last night. Going to be a couple of days before the trails dry.

    The rain really sanitized the trails. Some of them look like hike-a-bike trails. The power company also came and clear cut around all the towers.

    Light rain on the way home. Looks like more to come.

    Trails are in great shape. A few muddy spots on the lower trails. Most of the rocks are dry.

    The rangers are building a new trail that start at the top of slider and does some tight switchback climbs and descents. The trail is planned to end at the beginning of the MCC Trail. It is still a work in progress so it is an out and back trail at the moment.

    Is it going to go down through that area that Hale Bopp runs around on the way down to the bottom?

    It takes a left off of slider and is going to go along the ridge between MCC(the college) and Rhino.

    Saturday, Nov 20

    Trail conditions:

    Not only are there DGRs everywhere, but there is also DGD*.

    About a third of the way down Shyst is a large cedar tree blocking the trail. I didn't make it that far, though. I went down hard on the off camber slime. Thought I had seperated my shoulder for a minute or two.







    *DGD -- Damn green dirt.

    I would imagine it is going 5 to 7 days without any rain to dry. It's been 3 so far.

    The forecast isn't looking good.

    If it rains tomorrow(70 to 80% chance), I would say not so good.

    The whole trail was slick Saturday and that was 72 hours after the last rain.

    I still have standing water in the backyard. It is still going to be slick with a nice leafy covering.

    There is no way I am going to try to ride there Saturday.

    That's what I needed. You want to join us at Cleburne then?

    Huge rockslide on River Trail. Rocks the size of cars blocking the trail. You have to climb over to get to MCC Loop and Rhino.

    Large tree blocking Rhino…you have to climb over to get to Hale Bop or vice versa.

    The park rangers have closed the trails to riding.

    Here is part of an e-mail.....asked to be passed on.

    Our park rangers have asked for me to send out this email concerning Cameron Park. It seems that the park is extremely wet and River Trail is flooded and unridable. Two of the bridges on the River Trail are completely submerged. To prevent more damage or injury, it needs time to drain and no traffic. They are letting water out of Lake Whitney and Lake Waco, so the river is flowing fast and has taken up temporary residency on the River Trail.

    Don't know if this is only River Trail or entire park. My guess is that it's only River Trail.
