Exactly. The Mile and Crack and other upper parts are fine, they drain really well, and you can even mess around on the upper part of boyscout (where the jumps are), but it seems as if the entire mountain drains into the lower part of boyscout and it gets wrecked every year - the ruts get deaper, etc.
Every time I talk to a local the only negative thing I hear about cyclists is that they need to learn to stay away from sensitive wet trails.
Cool, thanks. I might head up there and just stay off of lower boyscout. What about dropzone and that trail that goes from dropzone down into a neighborhood? I don't know the name but it's like Boyscout but with more jumps.
I just rode UCSC. The dirt is saturated but there weren't a lot of puddles. You still get muddy.
Yep. Still too wet though. I hiked up Magic Carpet about 1/2 hr after the rain had started today. Me and the bike were covered in mud by the time it was all said and done. Best to wait for the next break in the weather...
