The dirt (natural surface - singletrack) trails are being torn up at some places. If you leave mud in your shoes or bike tires, it is too soft. If you are leaving marks in the trail surface, its too soft.
Look at this photo (upper photo) of the Wabash Trace taken in the Spring of 2012. All of these ruts were caused by riding the soft trail surface. Once these ruts are cut in, it takes a long time and several passes with a grader/scraper. Mean time, you have to deal with the rough trail until it smooths out.
PLEASE - Don't ride soft/muddy trails!
