According to several recent reports, as of 11/10/15, RAT trail conditions have deteriorated with recent weather. The north, northeast and northwest aspects of the higher terrain have a lot of snow, mud and ice. A few riders have tried Ratical and found it virtually impassable. Would suspect the same for Plagueground and upper Rat Trap. The climb from 4 corners to Speedy is pretty messy. You will find mud/ice/snow even on shaded east and west aspects. Rain is falling now, and will soon turn to snow. With the cold temperatures forecast for the next few days, we should not expect conditions to improve anytime soon.
