I've got friends up there now who said they rode 250 between Wed night and Thursday. I'm headed up tonight! I'm not expecting anything perfect but I know the 3 hr ride will definitely be worth it. I'll let you know when I get back!Knarf0486 said:I know theres gotta be a few dootalkers who are going to be riding Pittsburg this weekend, I was thinking about it but opted out of the 4 hr drive for this weekend. Let me know how the trails are because I plan on going up next weekend.
Oh ya, all in all we did about 210 with plenty of stopping to eat and to play around on the mountains, so there's plenty of riding!DooNH said:I rode Saturday and had an absolute blast. We rode early from Umbagog lake up to Pittsburg and up. My only complaint is that there were a ton of riders out that day. I couldn't blame them though, it was a beautiful day and the conditions were great. I feel bad for anyone who decided not ride that day! On the way back through Pittsburg was pretty beat, and by 9pm or so the ride from Errol to Umbagog lake was rough. We decided not to ride Sunday. I'm curious to hear the conditions from someone who did. I had so much fun on Sat I had dreams about it last night! I'll post some pics when I get em. Can't wait til next weekend.
Agreed, every weather website I go to seems to be saying snow to rain with little accumulation. What is it looking like up there?Knarf0486 said:any updates, i really hope this rain/snow mix for friday doesnt f everythin up.
Thanks for the info!XHO said:Here is another report I found:
There is good to excellent riding in the HIGHER ELEVATIONS of Pittsburg as of this morning(Feb 2, 2006). The groomers have been out grooming all trails. You can get to all gas stations and facilities by sled in Pittsburg although it may be thin and rough in some areas. The trails in the northern part of Pittsburg in the higher elevations are still holding up well and are providing some good to excellent riding at the present time.
Trails to avoid, if you can, at the present time are: 112, Magalloway Road, from the junction with Corridor 20 and the junction with trail 143 (short windblown section hardly worth menitoning); Corridor 5 from the Junction with trail 138 to trail 112, Magalloway Road (east side of First Lake); and the local trails around Young's Store and the Pittsburg village. The best routes to the good riding from Back Lake are trails 142 and 147, Perry Stream east and west, over Deer Mountain, trail 141, to connect with Corridor 5 and trail 138 from trail 140 (Young's Store area) to get to Corridor 5 South (Bog Branch) and then to Corridor 20 East to get to the higher elevations.
Don't cancel any plans!
