Anybody been out to the lakes since the heavy rain. Was wondering how muddy it is out there compared to the ridge. New to the area. Thanks.

The trails opened yesterday, so it can't be all bad. Besides, mud is good for the complexion.

The trails take a long time to dry out at this time of year. The easiest way to check on trail open/close status is on The Parks twitter page twitter.com/yorkcountyparks

Went to the lakes this afternoon after work, lots of leaves, only really muddy spot was at the
flat sections near the log road fishing hole, other than that pretty good, there are a few trees down,
one on 2C near the double bridges, one on trail 4 on the fast down hill to the dam, and one on the goat trail,
everything else ain`t too bad, didn`t go over to trails 6 or 7, also the tunnel (under 83) to the goat
trail, the water got deeper, got wet shoes/feet cranking through it, getting too cold for that.

Did a short ride around the goat trail and airplane hill after work today. Cleared the branches/trees that could be moved by hand.

On first section of the goat trail from the boat launch lot, before the tunnel, at the downhill right turn, there is a tree down (lots of branches/vines around the trunk) with a clear path around it. There is a large tree down between the Iron Stone Hill lot and the Hess Farm Road lot, with the top of tree in the lake. There is an existing trail around the section with the down tree.

Jody, I didn't even notice the water in the tunnel with my waterproof winter shoes...
