How late is too late?

We are considering riding the trail in mid-October and would welcome any comments about typical weather, trail conditions, color, and water availability at that time. Thanks!

We have the exact same questions! A few families with many small children (2-9 yrs old) are planning to come down from ND mid-late Oct for a couple days of kid friendly (downhill) rides. Are we crazy for planning so late in the season?

We were planning to self shuttle a couple North sections unless the time of year warrants a different approach.
