Greenway and trail are still good. Standing water on greenway sidewalk and flowing water in the concrete ford but both are easily passable.

Lots of traffic on the trail today: bikes, hikers, runners, dogs, horses, and deer.

Flooding improved. Standing water in sidewalk valley and couple of inches overflow in concrete dip but both are easily passable.

You can walk bike through the Reynolda Road bridge construction area since they are not working on it over the holiday weekend.

The trail is firm with no standing water. Some ruts are deeper and larger; some ruts are already down to bedrock so they can't get any deeper.

Salem Creek is high and rushing so I didn't bother following the greenway to the dam since the ford area would be impassable. At the Reynolds Park Road bridge detour, I just stayed on Renolds Park Road and then took Salem Lake Road to the lake. This way only adds a mile to the total ride but it adds lots of hills.

Greenway below dam WILL be flooded and impassable for the next few days from last night's rain and more rain is expected over the next few days.

Trail will be in poor shape for days and should be avoided. It will be very soggy and rutted. Bicycles tracks will cause even more rutting on the soft surface.

With the soggy ground and high winds, trees will probably be down.

Even after the rain finally stops and the sun comes out, the greenway and trail will have problems for many days.

Greenway has some big water puddles. Sidewalk area is covered in rushing water but passable. Concrete ford has rushing water but it is passable if careful; you will get your feet wet.

Trail has some soft areas but it is not a problem.

Greenway and trail are in the same condition as before the small amount of rain we got Friday. The trail is rutted, especially on hills, has large areas of loose sand in curves, and has lots of exposed rocks, and it will be that way for months. At least until they have a foot race scheduled; the city always grooms the trail for foot races; bikers who use the trail daily just to be extra careful and fend for themselves.

We'll have to wait and see what tomorrow's weather brings.

It is advisable to stay off greenway and trail today. There will probably be fallen limbs/trees on the greenway and trail.There will be heavy flooding and rushing water in the sidewalk/ford area of the greenway. There will be standing water on the trail and you and your bike will get covered in wet, sticky cinders.

Greenway concrete ford has overflow but easily passable.

Greenway has a limb down at the greenway entrance at Marketplace Mall. It blocks greenway but is easy to get around. The concrete sidewalk has about 5" of flowing water; even slow pedaling will get your feet wet. The Concrete ford has about 6" of rushing water. It is difficult for a 190 lb. man to walk through. If walking, keep your bike on the upstream side of you or you will be stuggling to keep it from washing away.

The trail is clear and firm.
