2017-06-01: MD Black Hill East 3pm, 80 °F, YELLOW Maybe. Peeked at Black Hill Cabin Branch, Hard Rock, & Optical Fiber Line from Lake Ridge Dr: there were some soft spots near the entry points, but as far as I could see, the rest of the trails looked passable.June 2, 2017 at 7:58 pm #717651
2017-06-02: MD Black Hill East 3pm, 80 °F, YELLOW. Hard Rock was GREEN, dry to damp. Cabin Branch has some muddy sloppy spots that aren’t draining well. Hoyles Mill in Black Hill was in better shape than Cabin branch, but still had a few soft spots.June 4, 2017 at 10:56 am #717653
