    Default July 2021 - Road and Trail Conditions

    Exercise class on Trollheim?
    This morning around 6:30am traveling south on MVT from Roosevelt Island parking lot, I started on Trollheim, which was wet and thus likely slippery. I noticed ahead a large group of people (20?) at the intersection where it splits for the Roosevelt bridge and continuing on MVT. The “leader” seemed to be trying to organize them in rows to do something in the large area. I rang my bell repeatedly, trying to slow down safely, and said “This is an unsafe place to stop. It gets slippery.” They all reacted as if I were just a whiner (“And GOOD day to you,” “There is always one like that”) or just ignored me barely making room for me to pass through.
    Did anyone else notice the group there? Ever seen such a group there before?

    Otherwise the trails on an Arlington Loop were clear after last night’s rain.

    Perhaps you should have suggested they exercise on the GWMP? It is wider than Trollheim, after all (as well as unsafe for cars in that vicinity, but that's another story).

    Not to mention the empty parking lot 100 yards to the north, either.
