The East end thawed out by the afternoon. The mud was very sticky and packed up on the front fork so the tire would not turn. Give it a few days...

From July 21: Started from the upper Canmore trailhead, did a 2/3 out and back. Handful of puddles from the week of rain but all are passable....

Excellent condition. Due to the rain last week, there are a few soft deep tracks but very rideable!
