Hardpack is the most common soil condition if the weather has been dry, and the trail is in good condition without much loose dirt on top.
Tire traction is usually quite good on hardpack with most tires, but tires designed specifically for it will perform better.
This soil is not quite damp, tacky, or sticky. If it were it would be called tacky soil which is even more fun.
