Trail was good today. Tree down right after road crossing as mentioned. Clearable. Lots a leaves helped me perform my first spectacular endo of the year. Pushing hard through the twistys I washed the front out slowly then it bit as it caught a small root and high-sided me into the bush. Beware of leaves and too high of tire pressure. Bad combo.

It appears that the tree in question has already been moved. Thanks to whoever did it.

Saw that tree--it wasn't there our first lap but was on the 2nd. It was certainly rollable but odd how it showed up on a calm day with no obvious cause...

I'd slid the downed tree back off that Nate mentioned.

Definitely curious how things look after last night.

Bunch of trees down. Two even on the paved section to get to the trail.
We moved some of the dead movable stuff out of the way. Two are so big that only way around was to crawl underneath.
Its an adventure out there.

Otherwise the trail itself is only got a few avoidable mud holes. Turkeys in the trail as well.

I may be headed out there tonight. Should I plan on taking a little longer than a normal lap due to all the downed trees?

Got in a half-lap yesterday before I wrenched my deraileur hanger. There were three trees across the trail starting about mid segment 1. The first one is hefty, maybe 24".

Then we had a light all-night rain here in Northville. Too bad cuz except for a few grease spots in the usual areas, trail was primo.

One perennial mud pit was gone thanks to nice limestone work (cudos to Don & co?). It was right in the middle of segment 2 at the base of the sandy climb. Very nicely done, thanks!

Trail should be a bit better - saw some folks out today enjoying the near sunny weather.

Trail was frozen and firm today. A tree down at 0.8 and will require a chainsaw. It pokes out into the trail and is no problem for day riders. If you're riding in the opposite direction at night, watch for it....could catch you like a spear. There's also another tree down at 4.6 that will also require a chainsaw.

Rode Sat AM during the short snow dusting, trail was firm and beautiful. As mentioned a few trees down. Be very careful and enjoy.
Wake up happy.

All but one tree have been removed. The remaining tree is shortly before the first road crossing.
