Sunday Update: Got word that a group of bikers rode Cannell Trail and said it was great.  Some snow patches but not bad. 

From Saturday:

Still some snow up at Sherman Pass, although the road is passable by 2wd cars this weekend (at least on the Kern River side of the pass).   Cannell Trail had been ridden, but not sure of the snow condition yet....

Sherman Pass Trail had a few inches of snow still, and Trout Creek Trail and Schaeffer Mdw Trail had several patches of snow above 8,000 feet.

Cedar Canyon had great dirt (wet in places), and had been recently brushed (except for a 1 mile section).

Rincon Trail had several logs sawed recently, although 1 had just fallen.  The River Trail still needs a lot of work (brushing, moving boulders, rebuilding trail, etc).  About half was ridable.  Both Rincon and River Trail still had some great fall colors!
