The streams are dry. There are some areas where significant dry dirt has slid over the trail. Caution should be used as this material can wash out from under your tire fairly easily. I rode this loop frequently in the winter and spring but stopped riding it when the temperatures went up and also there was some trees across the upper winter creek section. That's all clear now.
