Some more boardwalk work completed this past weekend by the Cowles / NW CT NEMBA crew on the Orange trail that is in the southern part of the park. Excellent work guys! This will benefit all trail users!
.
Trails are still very wet out there, please seek drier places to ride for the time being.

Please avoid the trails at times like this: freeze, thaw, rain, snow, rain, thaw...repeat...not good. These pics were taken today. If you have to get out, please get out when it’s completely frozen (or dry), or hit a rail trail, trainer or the gym...thanks!

Resistance training at its finest! Come get some before the rain and heat comes!

Get your rides in before Saturday! Looks like rain is coming! As are some warmer day time temps. Things are most likely going to get very sloppy. Today was great. Studded tires are a plus. Tonight, tomorrow morning, tomorrow day and tomorrow night should be great as well! Come get some before it gets nasty out there on Saturday!

Cold rain and snow.....has come and gone from around here, and the rain and now heat are back again. January thaw is here and those chilly winds won’t blow.
.
Cowles is really getting soaked between the rain and the snow melt so please seek other riding places until the park either freezes or dries out. Higher ridges with rocks are your best bet, or hit some hard pack gravel roads...
.
Freezing night temps are coming the end of this week, then warm and rain again for the weekend...hopefully by the start of February we will be back in a cold cycle.

Happy New Year!!! Big thanks to MG for this report and pics: “trails are running excellent. Perfect winter conditions. Full snow coverage with only a few exposed rocks. Studs or no studs, fat or skinny will work. Just bundle up and a good time will be had.”
.
Go get some and have another great year!

Red Dawn! Great morning out before the ice comes. Frozen dirt, with a sprinkle of ice here and there. Not sure what the weather is going to bring, but please enjoy wisely. If the temps rise please try and not rut the place up. Otherwise enjoy and have a great weekend, and happy holidays!

Borrowed from a post on the NW CT NEMBA FB page: Your voice needs to be heard. Please take a minute or two to support mountain biking in Connecticut. Numbers matter. All of our NEMBA chapters in Connecticut urge riders to send in comments to support MTB. You can use your own words or simply cut and paste the key points we endorse.

Bbbrrrrrr...Current cowles conditions are decent despite the cold. Packed heavily traveled areas have some hidden ice beneath the light snow that fell overnight. All in all, great fatbiking weather. Watch out for frostbite and go get some! I’ll be skipping my usual Friday morning dawn patrol. It’s going to be about 13* and I’m still thawing out from a sub zero VT ski trip yesterday...

The morning dew was crunchy, frosty and cold this morning!!! Took the fat bike out for a shakedown this morning. Had to make sure all was good with it before the cold rain and snow gets here tomorrow. Hopefully more snow than rain we don’t need the trails to turn into black muddy rivers. You might as well go get some! The trails are riding fast and every time that wheel turns round bound to cover just a little more ground, so go get some!

The ground was a bit frosty this morning and the rocks and roots were a bit slippery! But should be a great weekend to get out and get some!

Continuation from our last post...Please, please, please, heed this property owner’s wishes. If you come across this sign north of Cowles Park, please turn around! Thank you in advance! It’d be a shame if we lost access to trails...

PSA: A section of private property north of Cowles park has been closed to riding by the owner’s. There is active hunting on the property. Trail blockages and caution tape have been put in place. Please heed these trail closures, and respect the land owners desires, as your safety will be an issue on their private property. Thank you!
.
General description of the area to avoid is as follows, and its general location is marked in red on the attached map and the area being hunted actually extends further north than depicted (Cowles Park northern boundary is noted at bottom right of map):
.
* North of Cowles Park
* North side of Hatchet Hill Road
* South side of Holcomb Street
* East side of the Concord Drive neighborhood
* West side of the blue / Metacomet trail.

Foggy, humid, slick dawn patrol. Dirt was super tacky, leaves held together, but roots and rocks were slippery...mostly cloudy, slight chance of showers today should keep conditions about the same. Hopefully things dry out a little more in the sun tomorrow. Then slight chance of showers again Sunday. Go get some and have fun!

Happy Halloween!

Despite 4 inches of rain, the East side trails have dried up and are ready to ride. A ton of trees and debris came down during the storm but the Cowles gnomes were already out in full force and managed to clear it all, thanks guys! The west side reports are still coming in so we'll try to update you on conditions there when we get them.

Hey All! A lot of rain has fallen at Cowles, so let’s please give the trails some time to dry out before riding them again (at least a day or two). Also once you do get out riding again please keep us informed of any downed trees that need to be taken care of, thanks!

Amazing what team work can accomplish! 230 feet of boardwalk over wetlands laid down in a day thanks to this hardworking #nemba crew made up of local trail users and those who love #CowlesPark. Thank you Createx Colors of East Granby for your generous donation which made this boardwalk possible and East Granby Parks and Rec for your support. Come out and ride the orange trail!
