April 23 2022 Bird Farm trail ride

Post by bird man »

Its time .....spring Bird Farm trail ride.
April 23 Saturday.
Hopefully it will stay dry enough for a trail ride....those of you who have ridden here know how one little shower can make riding conditions difficult for riding here in the low lands.

For those not familiar this is a single track in the woods and field edges trail, located near Garnett Ks on a 200 acre working farm. There are also open field for those who want to ride with lots of space and no trees to dodge.
Trails have something to offer for everyone from beginner to seasoned rider. Excellent venue for kids and adults alike. No rocks and scary/dangerous hazards .... but you can get hurt if you try.
It is unlikely the creek bottoms themselves will be dry enough to ride this early in the spring.
We will have ride waivers for riders to sign.
Can come as early as 9AM and stay as late as you like (dark). Bring a sack lunch ,snacks , water and enjoy a day on the farm riding with family and friends.
We are located 12 miles west of Garnett Ks. There are multiple places to purchase snacks and etc. as you come through town. The little store just outside of town (yoder store) now 7th street grocery is still there and a good place to stock up with fresh made sandwiches, drinks and etc. It is located just west of town about 2 miles on the road coming to the farm (7th st)
Parking will be the usual spot in the grassy shaded area across the drive east of the windmill.


I will keep you updated here on riding conditions as the date gets close.....generally speaking if we can avoid a rain 2-3 days before the ride and have sunshine trails should be ridable.
Early spring is a good time to ride the woods. It is usually cool , things are getting green but not overgrown and visibility is good.

Any more questions ? post or call Larry at 785four four 8 four 9 four 2

Did trail maitance today. I was pleasantly surprised to see , in spite of a couple light showers we have had the trails are still dry enough to ride. Of course low spots and creek crossings are muddy. Hopefully we can make it until Saturday with out much more moisture.

Trails are still dry and ready to ride. Come and enjoy. We do have some chances of thundershowers by late afternoon tomorrow but should have plenty of time to get in a ride.
