Lots of mulch on the trail surfaces due to March rain bombing. Makes seeing where to go difficult, but do bear in mind that the mulch protects the trail surfaces- besides, it's riding against resistance which is good training, haha. Some trail markers and tape up in the bush. (Grading) Markers indicating access points from road and firetrails have been removed.

RFS changed backburning dates to Sat/Sun but they are all business at Arcadia RFS today! It was pretty warm out early this AM @ 17degrees... consequently, the spiders ???? have hatched and are starting to spin their webs across all the trails. Mirkwood in summer is part of the rites of passage around here.

Lots of mulch on the trail surfaces due to rain. Trail groomers may have left the area or been harrangued by eco-warrior fanatic. Seeing where to go is difficult now, but do bear in mind that the mulch actually protects the trail surfaces- besides, it's riding against resistance which is good training, haha. Persevere- more gentle bicycle wheels rolling around this network would help with navigation.

All trails are getting a bit mulchy (with leaves, bark and sticks), or grasses etc are growing up throgh some trail surfaces due to the nice rain- so expect rolling resistance along quite a few areas. Few more bicycle wheels rolling through the Labyrinth on a regular basis would help- plus a bit of grooming where needed.
