I went for a run at HH tonight. Trails are dry! No new major damage from the snow on the outside yellow loop. The only big road block is a tree down on the trail up from the snow plow turn around parking area. It's been down over a couple of weeks though, will need tools to clear it up. Otherwise things are looking good on the yellows!
If you worried about falling off the bike, you'd never get on.
Its funny, when the skiing is good i'll do 3-4 days in a row, I dont usually do that on a bike and I like biking more....i think. I've skied 4x in the last week. A ski section would be good. While your at it maybe a dirt bike section too.....after all its a trail bike
I think you could, most trails have been skiied hard and are packed down but it would a 12" wide track. You could park on Canaan Rd and ride Red Man to the top and get on the trails from there. The short section from the snow plow turnaround to Rabbit Run might be a little rough but there are truck and snowmobile tracks to ride in. From that point the groomer took care of red man and canaan. Picture of the Y4/Y8 intersection a few days ago
I skied there on Monday and found some of the less traveled trails to have a nice soft ski track. The main trails were getting stepped on pretty hard. Another warm day with a cold night will really set it up. Plus there's a race there next weekend. After that, it will be a skating rink. Perfect for fat biking!
I've ridden HH in the snow a few times now. This shot is from an unmarked section near the lollipop loop. HH gets tracked out fast by skiers, snowshoes, sleds and hikers. What's bad for the skiers is good for fat bikes.
Saw your tracks and it looked like it was not an easy pedal. I went out for a walk on Hammond yesterday and because of the previous warm and wet weather followed by 3 nights of temps in the 20's and days in the low 30's the main trails are now rock hard. It should be better for riding today.
