Never been to R&V. What's the mud situation out there? Some of the pics on their website look like stuff I'd generally avoid.

All the deep mud is confined to pits. There's mud on some trails, but it's usually avoidable. On trails where it isn't avoidable, you can just roll through it slowly without issue. Of course, this is somewhat dependent on the weather.

Bottom line, I wouldn't hesitate to go if you don't like mud. I don't like it either, but still have a great time when I go.

Thanks, that's basically what I was looking for. It sounds like the ORV trails; some tire-deep mud dependent on the weather.
