Validating the wet winter we’ve just lived through, recent rider reports (April 5th & before) communicate that Ben’s Trail, between the MTB & KGB turnoffs, needs more time to dry out. Because of all the ride-arounds at a couple mucky spots, the trail is widening into 3x a single track, and NONE of us want that.
Please avoid riding that section for the next week or two. Thanks in advance!
