    I’m also curious whether it’s rained enough to matter.

    Side-note: anyone have a map that references the various sections? I read the names and some I can identify in context but some I really have no idea about. I think I’ve ridden most but would love to know the proper names for each section.

    @tec – it’s rained some in the north, but exposed dirt under our trees on the lawn is dry as it was yesterday. Headed out for a quick spin. Will check the west and post up in the next hour.

    Dry. Only wet spots are where water runs off parking lots or storm drains and even those are negligible. Thumbs up for riding

    Absolutely sick in there today! You could not ask for better conditions and kudos to the person who layed those rock beds it was starting to get nasty in that spot.

    Track is fast! Get out and ride.

    What are people thinking for trail conditions later today? I don’t really know how much it rained around the Don yesterday (assuming it did at all)

    Just took a peek around serena/sunnybrook. Trails very wet/greasy and standing water in lots of areas.
    Had to cut ride short, not good conditions.

    I was up around Sunnybrook around noon and while Roller Flowster was slick I found everything to be in pretty good shape all things considered. Didn’t even notice too many puddles.

    Slick as hell on the rocks. Had a pretty good crash and several close calls. My face hurts. Went from Loblaws to the Sunnybrook area this afternoon, it’s all in pretty good shape. Except for the rocky sections, for some odd reason most of them were wet & covered with mud.

    Hey all, changes are in progress on various parts of EdgeFlowsterizer-9000. Most notably; many jumps are being refaced and steepened. Each time thru could be different. Know your limits!

    Many water crossings are now rock armored, this isn’t for some odd reason, it’s to protect trails from erosion by water during storms. These areas are slow to dry compared to most other sections. Please refrain, when possible, from damaging them with your face. 😉😀

    Hey folks!
    the last I looked it poured rain the other day and The Don would be the worst place to ride right now considering the amt of clay and the sign at the trail heads “do not ride when wet” The Don will bite you hard if you dare to ride it when wet. I learned this 18 years ago…there’s a lot of work put into these trails and only riding when wet will make it worse for you and other riders. BE considerate and use your best judgment when riding boys.

    Anyone been in there today? I’m thinking it should be dry enough for a ride this afternoon, but would appreciate any up to date conditions info.

    Rode Motown and Quads late in the morning and everything was tip top. I would assume everywhere is very ridable with only a few of the bigger puddles still hanging around.

    Rode this afternoon from Pottery road all the way up to Sunnybrook and was considering 4Play and Smiths Edge when I heard the rumble of thunder in the distance… decided I better hightail it back and managed to exit the trail under the train trestle near Eglinton when the skies opened up. Trails were in excellent condition up to that point!

    Has anyone ridden the east-of-Don parts lately? Are the man-made features intact? I don’t know the name for that section but basically east of the DVP from the trees after Crother’s

    It’s Motown and Dr. Quad’s that are the two main trails on the East. Based on the post 2 above yours, looks like it’s in good shape. Not sure how much it rained here yesterday, but hopefully will be dry by this evening.

    Motown typically gets extremely overgrown in sections around this time of year, but otherwise is a great loop.

    Dr. Quads (entrance is left out of Motown over the train bridge on the right side) has a big landslide by the entrance. It’s walkable down below, but not sure if it’s been altered/fixed yet.
