Does anyone know what the status of the trail is? I want to ride there this evening and if it is bad I will probably go to another trail in the area.

I don't think it matters where you go in S.E. Michigan, there are going to be trees
down on the trails. As far as I know River Bends is clear of deadfall thanks to
Jeremy, you may want to give that a go. I know we have 9-12 down at CRPT,
Aaron is going to try and get out there today to take care of them.

A big tree down at the entrance to the snake (we cleared a path under/thru it) and one chainsaw sized tree down in the second half of the pines. Tree down on the downhill to the left from the grassy knoll and a couple other little pieces on the two track.
Other than that its clear flying, Coaster is all good!

Thanks Mike.
I'll see about cleaning that up Saturday am.

I got out there this evening and cleared the trees down in the Pines and the entrance to Snakes.
It was dark as I was cutting in the Pines so I opted out of clearing the tree off of the grassy knoll. (I assume there are other options there??)
Also, as it was dark, only the tree itself has been cleared at the entrance of Snakes. Much of the small debris is laying on the trail. It's rideable, but a mess nonetheless.

Enjoy,
Pete.

Will the trail be good to ride in the morning? Considering the rain all day Thursday...

It is currently around 20 degrees at Stony Creek this morning.
The trail should be at least partially frozen, but there may be a few muddy spots as the leaves act like an insulating blanket in spots.
I would think it should be fine to ride. Last night there were a few sets of fresh tire tracks on the wet trails and those looked just fine.
I doubt it will be very fast, but good nonetheless.

Trail was like frozen concrete. IOW, it was fast. I, on the other hand, was not. :roll:

There was a (chainsaw-worthy) tree down at the beginning of the rock garden bypass. Also a couple of small, rollable trees on the 2-track between 23 and 29.

The trail was in good shape this evening. A little soft in a couple of spots, but we have very little dirt on our bikes after riding for 1 1/2 hours.....

Stoney single track was nice and frozen yesterday afternoon. Did not spend much time on the double track.

Rode Pines and Roller Coaster last night (12 degrees). Got 14.7 miles in. Trail is in great shape. Although, the deer looked at me like I was crazy :o

Two of us rode from 6:15 to 7:15. Coldest ride of the year so far. Nice dusting of snow to make things interesting. Didn't see any deer, but saw a group of 3 (?) riders coming out of pines around 7:00.
