Dead end trails from storm damage. Trails not well marked. Often can end up facing head on traffic.
Haven't been to the Ridge in almost 2 years and really loved the place. Had heard rumors of storm damage to some of the singletrack and found that some trails have been closed, others should be closed since they dead end to down trees with no bail-arounds. What singletrackt they have, should be labeled with an entry point. It gets very confusing on where to pick it up and often you find yourself back on the same trail, or lose the markers. The good thing is that it's not all torn up, looks like it doesn't see a lot of use.
The staff is very nice and returned my call to ensure they would be open and what to expect. My wife forgot to bring her riding pants and luckily they had a pair that would fit her. We really enjoyed it, but would like to see some better marking and direction signs.

Good Single Track(Score: 1)
There's single track for all skill levels, and enough of it to keep occupied for a day without getting bored. We maybe saw the same trail twice all day. If you like tracks they have 2 or 3 + peewee.

Serious Single Track(Score: 1)
The single track was great (as always), the open stuff was icey and slick (it was cold!)
There are a couple of open trails in the clear cut that can be extreemly dusty. Fortunately that's only a small percentage of the trails. Some of the single track can be overly challenging to mid-C riders and below.
This if my favorite ride park. The single track is tight, shady and only dusty in the driest times in summer. The soil drains very well. If it rains Mon thru Fri, the trails will still be good on Sat! The trails connect very well, are all 1 direction, and there are lots of them!
