“WHAT’S FROST-THAW or FREEZE THAW?!?!?”
There are parts of the day where the temps get above 32 degrees (usually in sunny areas of the trail) and the base layer of the trail starts to melt into mud. It’s sloppy, gross to clean off, but most importantly IT CAN BE VERY DESTRUCTIVE TO THE TRAIL. Later in the evening, the trail will begin to freeze again, and whatever damages that were done will be the new base layer of the trail.
Ruts, grooves, and footprints are not your friends if you’re trying to have a fun and safe ride.
Simple Rule: 32 And Below- Good To Go
Please take note of the trail you’re planning on riding…deer firearm through end of Nov. Archery and black powder continue.
