      Fast and dry to Bear Lakes. No problem with motorized users. Trail work has mitigated some mud holes.

      Easy to avoid the mud pits.

      There is mud in the wheel ruts from motorized vehicles. You'll get a bit of mud on you, but in most places it's possible to avoid it by riding...

      STILL muddy. Continues to rain frequently, just not drying out.
