A late afternoon thunderstorm developed over FATS yesterday and dumped quite a bit of rain. Trails have been pretty dry lately so it should be okay to ride after about 24 hours.
Although there was no debris on the roads around FATS or any damaged trees visible, this same thunderstorm did take down trees nearby. So once you are back out on the trails be aware (and please let us know) if there are trees down on any of the FATS loops > firstname.lastname@example.org
Had a front roll through yesterday dumping some rain on FATS and causing 31 trees to topple into the trail. 21 of those trees were removed this morning - 10 more larger trees that will need a chainsaw will be removed in the next week or so.
Another front of rain rolled through this afternoon dumping more rain, please allow at least 24 hours for the trail to dry out before riding! Thank you!
A front rolled through last night dropping a lot of rain ending in the early morning hours (rained for about 4 hours). It has been dry but the trails will need 24 to 48 hours to dry out. Please do not ride the wet trails.
FATS is officially open! There were about a dozen trees down in the segment of trail that was checked. Please report any additional conditions/trees. Please ride in the middle of wet spots along the trails. Thank you.
The rain moved into our area on Saturday evening and continued all day on Sunday. More rain is headed our way. It has been a dry fall and fortunately the rain has been steady not torrential but the trails will still need time to dry out. We are in that time of the year when the foliage is not absorbing water as quickly.
Please do not ride the wet trails. Once the rain has stopped the trials will probably need 48 hours to dry out (we will check trail conditions and report).
The front moved into the area yesterday afternoon and we have had rain off and on since. More rain is predicted. Please do not ride the wet trails they will need a minimum of 48 hours to dry after the rain has stopped before they will be ready to ride again.
