      It's very wet and muddy. Would avoid to prevent further trail damage

      Closed for repairs. Do not ride - even if you think it's fine to ride heavily saturated and snow covered trails. You are causing tons of damage and creating work that nobody is paid to do. Special and sincere thank you to anyone who has respectfully stayed off the trail during all the wet conditions. - Dark Crystal trail crew
