As I sit here righting this, it is raining in Mid-Missouri. Does anyone have any idea how long it takes for the trail to dry out? This has been a pretty good rain, but it was the first in a while and the sun is expected to be out tomorrow with temps ranging from 41 and up to 60. Any ideas?

Go ride tomorrow afternoon!!

The trail drains very well in most places. Memorial Day 2004 I had planned to ride with my niece, but we had severe thunderstorms in the early afternoon. I had given up on the idea of riding and we were just waiting out the storms and tornado warnings at my cousins house until we could head home. The storms past and the sun came out and she still wanted to ride so we hit the trail about 4:30 and rode 9 miles with no problems. You may run through a few soft spots or have to dodge a few puddles, but the plus side is there will be no dust.

Cool! I am actually a walker, but this is the best site I have found on the trail. I am hoping to convince my wife to do the New Franklin to Rocheport section with me tomorrow morning. I KNOW she is going to use the rain as an excuse, so now I have some ammunition for my counter-argument.
