We do not have real time updates on trail conditions. The best option is to search for BikeKansas on Yahoo groups and become a member. Local trail conditions are shared by fellow members via this group.
All our trails are closed when wet. If your tires slick up when riding then the trail is too wet to ride.
Consider IMBA Rules of the trail #2: Leave No Trace: Be sensitive to the dirt beneath you. Wet and muddy trails are more vulnerable to damage than dry ones. When the trail is soft, consider other riding options.

Just a question. It looks as though some horses have been using the trail. Is there some kind of ordinance or signs to prohibit this? I would sure hate for the trail to be detroyed. Has anyone else noticed this?

During the Air Cap opening event we had a visit from the owner of a business close to the trail. The business, Kansas Natural Stone, is located right across Seville Street. He has had parking issues in the past with employees of the Indian Motorcycle dealer. He requested that our members not park in the gravel lot on the east side of Seville.

The land owner has had about 30 dump truck loads dumped on the east side of the trail close to the parking area. About 6 loads block the exposed return section on the MWF loop. I have been told the dirt will be removed in the next few weeks.
