Considering the temps this weekend, I'm wondering if a gravel/double track ride at Greensfelder would be an option. I'm not exactly sure where these trails are, so I'll have to hit the park map first.

Any thoughts or recommendations?

Thanks,

LC

Paved trails like the Madison County system, Grant's, Riverfront or Creve Coeur Park. Al Foster was pretty sloppy today (hiking).

I am thinking about trying the gravel roads at Queen Park today. But I suspect those might even be sloppy. I may just ride on the road.

rode these this morning. Surprised to see that my tracks were the first from a bike. They were all still snow-covered and frozen. Scenic loop road is also still closed and pristine snow-covered. Also rode the singletrack. Dogwood was great, Declue not bad but seemed to be thawing faster than Dogwood. The areas on Dogwood that get sun also are rockier and drain better. Doing laps on that trail is sometimes better than going over to Declue.

I missed you, I was hiking around on Eagle Valley and the Green Rock this morning also.
