CURRENT TRAIL CONDITIONS
CRP bike trails are counterclockwise for June 2018 and will remain counterclockwise for the rest of summer. ( watch for Detour signs due to Fitchers creek project Calcautta Ridge has temporary closure, most likely till July) Pepper Ranch is groomed well and open till the end of June. Most riders are aware that CRP is claybased dirt from the River and the bike park often floods or is too slippery to ride in the summertime.
Our summertime forumula: For every 1/2 inch of rain, bike path requires 1 0r 2 dry days for trail to be rideable.
