Bottom section from the golf course to the parking lot doesn’t look like it’s been groomed this year. Packed down with foot traffic and plenty of post holes. I wouldn’t bother with this section.

This isn’t maintained. Many small
trees down over the trail. 2 spots with large deep water that I had to walk my bike around and still got wet. I would skip this trail.

Very wet and boggy not well maintained and nothing too exciting, stay clear and avoid this trail. Even the police after of before is insanely boggy and no good.

Trail Firdale
Seems to be an old doubletrack that is not maintained nor regularly ridden. Boggy in places, and a few large puddles that probably never dry up completely. Aside from the wet spots, the dry sections are nothing special. Probably best to avoid this trail when exploring or planning routes.

There are 2 large bog holes not quite halfway in between. You'll have to get off your bike to traverse. Much easier to get across now compared to earlier in the spring.
