Over the last week we have had rain at times. Thursday offered up more of the same shower activity.
Trails will be moist today Friday and again on Saturday before things dry out and warm up over the weekend.
The word from the Mammoth Mountain Bike Park is they will open next Saturday with lower mountain trails: Downtown, Uptown, Big Ring, Lower Paper Route, Juniper, Timber Ridge, Shotgun, Lower Pipeline, Bullet, Lakes Trail, Lower Follow Me, Pioneer Practice Loop. Most these trails are no ready to ride on your own power, get out there and peddle your way into shape.
All the USFS trails are 100% melted out and ready to ride for the next 6 months. Check out our Inyo forest trail page for details.
If you need your bike serviced, or you need parts check out The Footloose Bike Shop .
Locals Choice this week is the Uptown to Shot Gun !
