      The majority of the trail remains firm with very few softer patches that leave sign without bogging in. There is no trail erosion however if more rain falls I would consider closing the trail

      Trail is mostly fine with a few soft spots nothing digging in at this point. There are a few puddles most can be avoided however all seem very firm. Any follow up rain would suggest a closer look or closure
