Trail Etiquette Rule #1
Don't Ride Muddy or Closed Trails!
Eagle, CO Trails opened on April 15th after a long season of wildlife closures for migrating and wintering animals! Hallelujah! But, it's raining today...
Remember, muddy trails are always closed. Don't be the reason we can't have nice things! A lot of work (read days) of trail-work goes into repairing a few hours of muddy riding. A good rule of thumb is that if you are leaving an imprint, stop and wait for dry conditions. The climate in Eagle is very dry and ruts that are made during muddy conditions stay there for a very long time. These ruts carry water down the trail and cause erosion over time. They are also very rough to ride on, especially in bermed sections of trail.
There are plenty of dry days to ride in Eagle, so "When in Doubt, Wait it Out!"
