Honey Run

Postby Sasquatch1413 » Mon Apr 21, 2014 8:35 pm

Gonna finally check out Honey Run this weekend. Gonna take the single speed as its the only bike that will fit on the car we're taking. Anybody been down there recently? Is there a local bike shop or something that keeps good tabs on conditions?

Did not make it down there last year, so no to your first question.

Dan and Nicole Dougan own and operate Oz Cycles and Kayaks. They should be able to give you trail status. I would think it would be in great shape right now, maybe some trees down. SS will be fine down there.

Is Honey Run like Arkansas, ride the day after it rains? Or more typical of the trails around KC as far as dry times?

Somewhere in between, closer to Arkansas than KC though. There are a few low areas that might be a little soft, but I bet by Saturday it will all be good.

The South Loop is the most "moisture susceptible" of the the 3 segments. There are also a couple of seeps on the Connector, at the low end. I've ridden it a couple of times a day or so after a rain, and it holds up pretty well.

It's not super convenient, but not horrible. Google Maps says 30 miles/40 minutes drive. Take 5 South to Hwy 7, to Hwy 54 North, to A. Go east on A to McCubbin Drive to the trailhead.
