Where is the new section?

Thanks for all you do!

North end of the trail by commerce road. When it's fully ridden in it will be great, adds a few extra hundred yards of trail. Nice work Builder Bill.

Rode here yesterday, trail itself was in great shape. Fast and fun as always, lots of overgrowth though. Could use a haircut

Bill,

First off love the new section! You keep finding ways to make this trail longer and longer and it's appreciated!

Not sure if the section between Peters road and the library is officially on the map but there are two trees down on the trail about 1/2 way from the Commerce Rd entrance.

Keep up the great work!

I routinely stop at that exact spot on my 2nd-3rd lap to take a quick dip :D

Planning on riding Milford for the first time tomorrow. Anything I should know before I go? Is the trail well marked and easy to follow or are there numerous forks and options to take?

It's pretty straightforward. I don't think there's literally any unclear spots.

The weirdest thing is knowing where to start at the ball field parking area, and to follow the signs. Once you are done, just keep on going and you'll pop out back in the parking lot. If you hit pavement, keep going straight across.

It's pretty easy.

Two laps today, really enjoyed the trail, bit hot. First time there and will definitely ride it again if I'm in the area.

hickory glen smelled like sewage tonight as well but i think it was just the marsh. IIRC there is a waste water treatment plant nearby milford. Perhaps the heavy rains caused a discharge.
Don't worry. It's all downhill from here.

Yep. I know about the waste treatment plant. But this is on the other side of the loop. I never remember Milford smelling like this.
