Mostly dry with a few short sections that have been holding water. Mar 5, 2016

 
Thanks for posting this report on The Wilson River Trail. And yes, work has been done on it recently. Wayne Naillon Mar 11, 2016

 
The Wilson River Trail was not "cut as a hiking trail long before mountain bikes existed". It was designed and built with mtn biking and hiking in mind. As a multi use trail. It holds up well in the 110 inches of rain due to all of it being built on the side hill with 3 to 5 degree outslope. It was cut using modern mtn bike sustainable trail technology. Your statement about it being cut as a hiking trail is true of trails like the Elk Mtn and King's Mtn trails that connect to the WRT. But not the 23 miles of the Wilson River Trail. Wayne Naillon, Trail Steward, NWTA chapter of IMBA 1999 to present Mar 11, 2016
