Ridge: Damp/tacky with some greasy sections due to leaves. The usual puddles.
Catalyst: Damp/tacky. Switchback section still a bit spongy, but not messy.
Upper PA: Surprisingly dry. Some dampness. Few puddles.
Overall trails were ok to good. Barring any rain, should be mint tomorrow afternoon.October 6, 2006 at 6:11 pm #573196

(sorry, don’t know the trail names…)
Conditions pretty much perfect. Most trails just slightly damp, not greasy. Rocks and roots dry. Fast riding today, and visibility is beginning to open up as the leaves fall.
My loop was from the Go Train crossing up to the Loblaws trailhead then down to the northern parking lot. Then along the fast riverside trail to the dirt jumps and back to the Go Train tracks and the Don trail.
The only mucky bit was the swamp under the very low railroad bridge.
The riverside trail (what is it called?) is spectacularly beautiful at the moment because the sumacs are all turning red and the vines turning yellow.October 6, 2006 at 6:15 pm #573197

Dirt jumps are 80% clear of leaves and puddles , but still there are the normal post rain puddles , if there is no rain the rythm section should be ridable by tomorrow 😀
