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

On the one hand, it’s a wide, beginner-friendly thoroughfare that’s not very exciting. On the other hand, if you bike it at speed, this trail will send you airborne–especially the notorious water bar section. Central Ridge is an important trail because it connects the other trails in the Military Reserve area.
