    Very minimal bugs! The little flies were minimal... There were a couple here and there but it was really no big deal. There were swarms of ladybugs, which were pretty neat.

    Ok was thinking of checking out Sart . Anyone know if the snow is melted? South fork and below. I understand Sky park and Exploration are ridable.

    I saw a ride on Strava yesterday by someone I don't know. Picture showed a small amount of snow, and there was a comment about three downed trees.

    Another friend of mine did a ride there, but no photos or mentions of trail conditions. So I imagine it is mostly rideable.

    I rode from the post office to where it dumps out on Warm Springs... AMAZING conditions! Only negative is that it's a little blown out from effin' motos riding on it. But only one or two, so not terrible.

    I just came off of it, Southfork and up Middle Control.
    There have been some light rains up there and the dirt is amazing.
    Short sleeves and only one bleeder, the trail is really nice right now.

    I heard there’s a major landslide in the area of glass road (Not sure if below or above) and the route through it is sketchy. Anyone have intel?

    Anyone out there have any updates on SART? wondering if the snow dump from last weeks storm has melted yet? Hoping to ride SART on Friday 11/20, if too much snow, need to have a plan B ride.

    I was up in the desert behind the range yesterday and there was consistent, but thin snow visible. San Gorgonio has a polar ice cap on it.

    Call The Oaks restaurant and ask them how many inches of snow there are in town. Maybe ask if they can give you intel on conditions up higher by South Fork Camp. Is 11/20 your annual Birthday ride?

    Looking at the Angelus Oaks webcam, their parking lot is clear but you can see obvious snow on the ground surrounding the lot and it doesn’t appear “patchy” on the webcam.

    So there was short video posted on a FB group I follow from guys riding SART today and it's not 100% covered with snow but there's definitely places where they got a lil' squirrley due to the snow depth. You could clearly tell others had ridden it before them as you could see the tracks/lines through the snow. **MOST IMPORTANTLY** and it may not be what you're after but holy smokes does it look like they are having a blast. If I didn't have to leave town, I think I'd be going up there next weekend.

    It might not be as much fun when it is an ice sheet after a few freeze-thaw cycles, but YMMV

    I’m thinking it could be proper luge conditions or it would be ridden down to soil by Saturday.

    Yes DDD, 11/20 is my ride, @Tom the Bomb is also coming out of hibernation to join the ride, but he is also concerned about the conditions....You know @Tom the Bomb ....conditions have to be perfect before he will commit! :laugh::laugh:

    I have ridden SART before w/ 'patches' of snow and it was still pretty fun, north facing trails on the way up to South Fork had most of the snow...pretty fun ride still.

    Local intel says that as of yesterday 11.15 it is not rideable. But some warm days coming up, so maybe by the weekend.

    Yes what he said
    On a side note I may have to go in and sign papers on a new home I am buying in Fallbrook Friday so Friday looks iffy at the moment. My other half would probably burn my bikes if I put a ride ahead of signing.
    I will let you know Rick.
