Rode Grand ridge on Saturday (Tax Day). Started from the High Point way exit, and climbed up the ridge from the south. Climb is well groomed and 100% ride-able. New 2 mile loop off main trail is in GREAT condition, with zero puddles or mud spots. I rode to the Duthie connector, and encountered a couple dozen mud-spots, large puddles (all ride-able) that weren't too deep. Total ride out-and-back including the new trail loop was just under 15 miles. No trees down that weren't cleared, and trail in good late spring condition. Encountered runners, hikers, and a few small groups of MTB-ers.
