Rode yesterday. Trail was leafy and slow. A lot of work has been done recently. Lots of new reroutes, berms and earth moving have been done. Features are still soft and need some shaping. Thank you for the work. This trail will be even more fun next year.

Let's ride this trail a lot through the fall to keep the leaves beat down and pack down the trail tread in the new areas.

Used to love this trail! Glad to hear some work is going into it. Last time I was there it seemed to be in disrepair. Will be back in the spring!!!

Two trees down. One less than a mile in and one about halfway near one of the outfields.

We were out there about a month ago - intermediate loop only. Lots of overgrown areas and the stunts looked really neglected and/or abandoned (except Danger Teepe - it looked recently rebuilt). The back swamp area was pretty gooey, but the rearranged bridges out there worked pretty well.

This trail and Shearer rd are looking for new trail coordinators.
Contact the WMMBA if interested or just talk to Randy. He's ready to step down.

Rode EC two weeks ago with a group of 7 from the east side of the state (Holdridge area). The trail was in good shape. Too bad we are not closer... would be happy to help out with trail maintenance.

Note that the best links for EC and Shearer Road are on the http://greenvillemi.org/ -- Rec and Parks page (some quirky nav to find these pages)...

mmba.org Trail Guide EC page links seemed to be a bit stale.
