- I rode from Iola to Garnett and back today. It was cool with a strong east wind by mid morning. Water was turned off at the trailheads (apart from Garnett) and I hit a few soft spots. Overall, they were avoidable.. The trail has a few cracks that are from the weather conditions per signs on the trail. In any event they were something to avoid as they ran such that they could grab a bike tire . Very few others on the trail today. It was my first time of the trail and a wonderful ride. I will say that anyone who minimizes the uphill spots on the trail hasn’t ridden the grade in the wind.
