A little off-topic, but this could impact riding conditions:

With all the bad news going around, it's nice to read stories like this.

Anyone know if the trail is ride-able today given the rain from yesterday?

I would guess that most of the trail should be OK, sans some erosion in certain areas. My concern would be the areas around the Huron River, like the Blue/Yellow two way around the concrete bridge. I haven't been out there, but that area is prone to flooding. That river and creeks probably took on a lot of water. I hope the trail is OK.

There were like 4 puddles as of 2pm today. Otherwise the sand has been tamed for now.

Rode Blue/Yellow tonight- trail was awesome. Few usual mud spots but overall very good.
Getting a little overgrown here and there though, but no trees down.

Island lake was sparkling today. A couple mud spots but not enough to muddy my shirt. Recommend.

I beg to differ. I rode both loops in the mid afternoon and there were quite a few muddy spots. I had mud sprayed on my legs. Quite a few spots with standing water. Most could be ridden around, but not all. The sand was nice and packed down though. All in all the trail o.k. I've seen it worse.
