Does anyone know how the trails are holding up at Swinley after all the wind and rain?

Looking at going Wednesday am.

    They're a mess.
    The blue trail is closed and some of the red is closed as well.
  • Info on alternate forums is that Swinley trails have now been closed and are not expected to re-open for a couple of weeks
  • Checked it out today and bit of a mixed bag.

    Red trails are mostly ok apart from Red 1 and Red into Deerstalker. Everything else up by the reservoir is pretty dry and in decent shape including labyrinth.

    Blue trails are mostly closed off so unless you're a regular and know of the older alternative trails that shadow Blue then you'll have trouble putting a decent loop in.

    From what I could see Blue doesn't look too bad and should be back up soon. I think Red 1 has suffered the most runming into Tank Traps.

    That's what it should look like
