Is the drought affecting trails near you?

In today's Omaha World Herald is the article "Cracks force some trails to turn away bike traffic."

The drought seems to be creating cracks in some unpaved (limestone, crushed rock, etc.) trails in the Lincoln, NE area.

Have the unpaved -- or paved -- trails near you been affected by the drought?

Not that I have noticed. Ours are pretty much cement. Whether or not that makes a difference, I don't know.

The 125 miles of trails in Lincoln are unaffected. It is the two main trails out of town going east and south that are affected.
