Dry and a very smooth ride. Encountered a female deer on the way so wild animals can be on the loose. Goes without saying but bear spray is...

The Spray Loop is still covered in snow/ice. It is a late spring out here and will be a while until we are riding on dirt!

 Rode May 22, 2017. Smooth and dry. Much smoother than Goat Creek trail which is much rockier. A few good slow climbs but lots of long fun downhill. We only rode the West or South side of the creek. Trail was dry.

 Rode November 21, 2017. Not quite enough of a base yet for fat biking but give it another week.
