Someone got the tree by the first road crossing, there is a new one down just past the 4 mile marker, a half mile past the second road crossing at 7 mile, and Beck roads, trail was in good condition.

Keep a keen eye out for this one, especially at night. It's completely across the trail & is about 2.5 feet off the ground.

Enjoyed one of my best rides at Maybury today. Trail was hard and clear. Very nice conditions for the last day in November.
Wake up happy.

Rode Maybury on Saturday and Sunday with Mukluk, ~6 inches of loose to lightly, unevenly packed powder, tough but very “rideable” (once I got the tire pressure adjusted). Based on previous winter riding experiences, think it would be nearly impossible to ride with regular bike/wheels and probably not much better with “Snowcat” rims. The trail needs to get some serious “Fatbike” traffic this week to pack the trail before the rain and above freezing temperatures later this week. Hopefully, the trail will not turn into a frozen, pock-marked, ”pizza cuttered” icy mess when temps return to below freezing again next weekend (i.e. avoid trail when temps are above freezing).

Would it be help if I drove the snomobile down the trail?

That usually works pretty well at ILRA.

Normally I wouldn't cotton to equestrians on the MTB trails, but...

Not necessarily. If it's getting packed I'd leave it. I've ridden ILRA BLUE snowmobile packed and YELLOW runner/biker packed and much prefer the latter, but anything is better than not packed.
