Rode the Merrell trail on Sunday late afternoon. What a great gem of a trail to have in the area. I am a trail coordinator back in Oakland County, so I really enjoy a well-executed trail. Very flowy and fun; seemed dry even after precipitation that we had on Friday. Nice work, people!

Not sure how cold it got overnight, but it's 32 in Lansing right now. Are we in the freeze/thaw cycle yet? What's the leaf situation like over there - is it safe to be going fast and getting air on the tabletops?

Would it be okay to ride Merrell before lunch today? I'd hate to drive all the way over there and find it closed or too wet for a good ride.

Thanks

Trail is fine to ride today. Leave have been blown off the trail.

When does the snow grooming start at Merrel?

We would like to start today but the ground is very warm and soft under the snow. Plus it is suppose to rain soon. It's anybody's guess when Mother Nature cooperates. Watch the Merrell Facebook page for the latest updates
