Between MM 34 and 36 you can probably walk your bike through the closed area if it isn't flooded. The problems were very rough surfaces and deep, loose sand which make it dangerous to ride through. If it is flooded, you could walk on the levee to bypass that part of the trail. I think that the levee might be on private property though and it's also very rough. I'd walk it.

The problem at MM 151 has been repaired and does not require a detour. I was on that part of the trail last week. I think someone very recently (last couple of days) posted the same about the problem at MM 101 to MM 104.7, it has been repaired and does not require a detour.

Thanks you for your responses greatly appreciated. Sounds like it should be pretty smooth sailing with the exception around Black Walnut/Machens.

Rode the Katy today through MM 34 and MM36. Trail is open, rode on packed dirt single file with growth on each side. There is a section approximately 15 to 20 feet in length of deep sand which I was unable to ride through on the trail in MM36.
