You got them to answer? I left a message didn't call me back. BTW, I wish they open upper Mad far enough to reach Hunter's trail. That would open up all the stuff that's been dry for months, but inaccessible without coming in from the Entiat

I want to ride over there this year for the first time. Where can I find paper trail maps or down load-able to a GPS maps?

Looks like my mad river plan for this weekend is out now. What's the number or website to see what's open or closed? Is teannaway or tronson open? Just now getting back into riding. Dying for some high country riding. Headed over Friday if anyone wants to join in

What's the difference between upper and lower mad? Is lower just that 10 miles of sandy chewed up trails?

I suppose the Chickamin Tie would be closed still too? I was "hiking" it closed (in August) a couple seasons ago and it was dry as a bone with zero windfall.

Word on the river is a couple weeks. Not sure why it's late this year, but I know there are a lot more trees down than in the average year.

Upper is everything upstream of Maverick Saddle in the Mad Lake valley. Lower is everything downstream of the Saddle as it flows toward the Entiat. Great trail down that way. I used to like it better before they fixed it, cuz almost nobody used it.

It's 11 lbs heavier than my two stroke. Close enough. 🙂

Considering sugarloaf was a total dust bowl on At the Dirty Face poker run in mid June, I think the whole damn area has been dry for months.... Just saying...
