Trail is riding well right now and there are no reports of mud, deadfall, or snow.

If you look up ‘swoopy’ in the dictionary, you’ll see a photo of Bucktail. This centerpiece of the Military Reserve trail system is popular with trail runners and beginner cyclists because of its mellow, steady grade and sweeping curves. Its mild, almost flat grade also causes it to hold water, making it a bad option after rain. If you loop it with Central Ridge trail, it looks like a kangaroo! So that’s cute.

  • heavy_braker February 3, 2018 at 12:52 pm2-3 small puddles. Ride through them, not around, so as to not widen the trail.
  • brownchrisj January 31, 2018 at 10:16 amStill quite a few puddles and soft spots, but good to ride.
  • ifitzpatrick January 30, 2018 at 4:20 pmBucktail is fine except for numerous puddles. Ride right through them to keep the trail from getting wider but otherwise it is fine.
  • r2rtrails January 25, 2018 at 1:36 pmIndications from the the Ridgecrest climb just before the shooting range, which is very muddy, is that Bucktail will be very similar. Still lots of standing water after the rainfall this morning.
