Although it only takes a few hours to shed any rain that falls onto the trails, it’s still a drag when you see it falling down almost every day. And it’s raining again today. At least this last dry spell was long enough to let farmers cut hay. I could see the white plastic spheres littering fields in the Mad River Valley last night as I drove home from Lincoln Gap. In the distance at dusk they look like golf balls.
Someday this will have to end. Someday soon I hope. In the meantime, plan your trip here to fit between the rainy periods. Most days the fog and clouds burn off just before lunch and you’ll have three to five hours of dry riding before the winds pick up and the next front moves in. You’ll still get some great riding in on nearly all of our 75 miles of trails.
