Weekend Ride - Got Ice?

The trails are icy at spots -- I'd say 50-60% covered of thick, hard-to-ride-on ice. I had plans on riding, and switched my plans to a road ride because of the icy trails. Even with the warm temps, I can't say for sure they'd melt -- it stays kinda cold in the woods. Hardy folks would enjoy it -- I saw some tread tracks, but it could be the locals who run studs. If you drive into Minnich's Hit picnic area or anywhere else IN the forest on White Oak road or Lykens road, BEWARE of thick ice on the road too. You'd be better off parking in one of the outlying parking lots (Snowmobile or East end).
