Can anyone provide an update on the Stone House Trail? Thanks!

I agree that the yellow designation is very misleading. I've also gone out to ride when the trails are yellow and found them to be unrideable without causing damage. Using only a red or green designation seems like a good idea.

I agree about the marginal rideability of Palos when yellow.; more often than not, if I trek down there on a Yellow day, I am back at the car after ten muddy minutes or so.

Lots of trail damage done by mountain bikers seen today......ruts up to 4 inches deep, I had some
trouble taking pics due to being eaten alive by mosquitos.......who rides in this mess?
This is why I do not like the yellow designation......or the ride with caution.....and the avoid the
muddy spots advice on the Cambr site......the folks in Cambr and EBC will heed the advice.....but you put
yellow up and the riders who don't care about the trails tear it up....I like the Kettle System.......
Trails are Green or Red.......there is no in between....I realize that there are challenges to having
just Green or Red at Palos......and this is just my personal opinion.....

Do you think there's any chance the trails will be dry enough to ride this weekend?

I don't think horses are the answer. Too big and the tack and wagons are huge, not to mention they can't operate on the single track. Much too steep and narrow. However in August we will be using these to move materials. Way better than horses and no poop. And until then there still is a lot we can do, just like in years past to repair and raise trails.

most trails will be seriously overgrown with fresh tendrils after "Le June-Deluge eu Douche". The good news is overgrown trails means a sharp decrease in usage.
- the more time and volunteers can be applied to areas on upcoming dry workdays.
(Please come out and help !)
getting the sightlines cut back is not hard since they have all been done last year - dragging them away to appropriate locations is much more time consuming.

The Park District would not have a problem with us having a horse drawn wagon to move rocks and materials as needed would they?
serious?? i just laughed out loud after reading your very sensible suggestion. if not serious, that's still funny closure - considering the topic is quite critical and not at all funny.
