Spring Thaw

by jaylauraplummer on March 15, 2015

Does our sudden Spring weather have you pulling the mountain bike out and tuning it up for the season?  Remember to give those trails some time to thaw out.  Riding too soon, before the frost has a chance to come out of the ground, will cause damage to the trails (ruts, etc.).  Some of our trail systems can officially be closed (LOWES CREEK) and others cannot.  So whether or not a trail system is marked CLOSED to allow the spring thaw it will always bring you good bike karma if you do not ride the trails too soon or when they are too wet.  THANK YOU!

Lowes Creek County Park is closed and we will let everyone know as soon as it is officially opened up for the season.
