West side of the a104 in Epping's got very wet, lots of wet leaves and surface water, starting to form puddles in places but very slippy.
Trails from high beech to pole hill are messy allready, getting gloopy around the streams.
Wet and slippy in the south today.

Gone soggy and muddy in the south. Traceys torrent is a mess allready though a couple of trails off the hills running ok, trails by streams and on flatlands are a soggy mess, slushy wet leaves are the main problem.

Little Baddow (half mile from Danbury common) was pretty soggy this morning, quite breezy too! No trees down that I saw.

South eppings drying up in places, only a few puddles and still some patches of mud. Some flow has returned in places. Trails near lakes are clagging up though.

north epping, ok in places, muddy in others, Haggis trail (tree down at the end to), theydon ridges, trail around loughton camp are all muddy and not worth bothering with. Most jumps spots are running well.

swinley, dry if you know the back routes, jump gulley almost dusty, stickler has a few puddles in the bottom of berms, tree down in corkscrew, expert area muddy but fun.

Lots of trees/branches down everywhere.

Wet and soggy.
all the flow has gone, pedalling downhill just to keep moving rather than accelerating.

Eppings a mix of frozen ground, icey roots, thick gloopy mud with not much flow around.

A couple of trails arent worth bothering with,

haggis if you stop pedalling on the downhill bits, you stop.
the new trail by the stream near butlers is really hard work, mud is cloggy there.
connaught water trail is thick mud
throwing pots is terrible at the end as usual.
all trails by streams ponds are cloggy thick mud.

North/mid east part probably running the best and sex drop's ok :)

best bet is to ride whilst its still froze though.

Eppings frozen solid overnight, fast flowy fun. :thumbup:
Trails that are mud fests this time of year are all flowing brilliant.
No bike cleaning required :)
Go riding

Broxbourne Woods are just a muddy mess, Bencroft and Wormley are a big mix from unridable slop to great flowing areas.

Eppings been a mixed recently.
fresh snow is a nightmare, frozen snow and ice a bit more fun. Its getting better but its best when frozen solid, first or last thing.
only just starting to melt a bit with the leaves under the snow getting wet and a slippy again.

fallen snowmen are easily converted into jumps :)
