quick ride on Saturday. Trails in great shape aside from the first small bridge after the NASCAR turns (newest section). Looks like the entire right side caved in just after the ramp up.

Trail was perfect tonight. Lots of leaves, but no wet spots. Looks like the bridge has been replaced too!

First time Milford trail rider today. What a pleasant surprise! Trail was in great shape. I would recommend this trail to anyone who hasn't ridden it yet. Great fall day for a ride.

Thankful for family and good health. Thankful for the wheel. Thankful for the guy with the loppers and the chainsaw on the Milford trail today. It's in great shape!

Trail was in mostly fine shape this afternoon. Almost all of it was frozen hard, but some of the sun-exposed areas were downright slick. Ruts weren't left on them, but they were just wet with a few mm of very slippery snot on the top. One sweeping turn in the utility cut put me down quite quickly, even with a fatbike, and that had me wary for the rest of the trail... I'd say get out there when it's overcast, night, or before the sun had a chance to work its evil.

No ruts on the trail, though, just hard frozen stuff... With occasional slick spots.

Know exactly where that slick turn on the utility cut is... Almost bought it there last month in a similar day...

On behalf of the trail coordinator, builder-bill, the Milford trail is now open to all bikes (skinny or fat)!

I also did two laps on Sunday around 5pm. Trail was in perfect shape, great traction everywhere.

Trail is in good shape today. Look for small tree down just past the small bridge near the YMCA. A more talented rider than me could probably hop over it no problem.

Look out for sweeper branch in the first mile. I've got some move facial scratches to show for it. If I go back tomorrow I'll cut it down.

Trail was great, and I had the pleasure of meeting the legendary builder-bill while I was out! He got the tree that was down, and I didn't notice the sweeper branch in the first mile - perhaps someone else took care of it. I also found a cycling computer out there tonight, so if this is yours, let me know and I'll get it back to you!
