The over all base varies from 4 inch to 12 inches. There is currently a logging operation on the trail 493 (the plains area) for 7 miles. This logging will continue all winter. I have upgraded the trails over all as good but there are areas that are in poor shape and some in Excellent shape. Ride with caution!
West End: West end of the island is in Good to Excellent shape.
East End: That little rain we had the other night was not kind to this area. The east shore from the Marble Head look out to Glen Cove along the shore line is poor. The shore line that continue’s to the Maxton Plains is Very Poor with little snow, lots of running water and logging. If you stay out of those areas the rest of this end of the Island is in great shape. You can go to Marble Head you just have to take trail 496 at Cornbeef Junction and return that way. Dont try to continue the loop. You will get wet and muddy.
Remember it takes less than 15 mins for hypothermia to set in once your wet so use extreme caution near these water holes.
