Flooding - not so bad

This Thursday morning, September 8, NPS reports that predicted levels of flooding in the canal park have been reduced. The park is therefore cancelling the call for volunteers to help sandbag Lockhouse 6 or to empty Great Falls Tavern.

Great Falls Overlook remains closed at this time but will reopen by tomorrow. Canal boat operations will resume on Saturday, September 10, but the Billy Goat A Trail at Great Falls will remain closed through the weekend.

I'm trying to schedule a final day's ride to finish a Relay for Life fundraiser. Possibly for next week. (Final day was interrupted by Irene.) What's the trail condition - Brunswick to DC? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.
