A question. Was riding Maybury for the first time (Island Lake Junkie looking for a new fix), and noted a fork in the trail with Loop B going to the right. Looking at the map at the intersection, there wasn't a fork in the trail. Looking at the older map posted on the MMBA site, it looks like a leg heading south....but that doesn't make sense because loop B went to the right as I approached it. Is Loop B the straight section and the "More difficult" route the loop heading to the south?

Thanks in advance for the help.

PS. The maps, which are well placed on the trail, really could use a "You are here" pointer.

Go left to ride the full loop. To the right bypasses some hills and the trail-head. This is a nice option for new riders/kids. You could park at the stables off Beck Rd to ride the short loop.

Going to the Left does complete the loop, however going to the right diverts you back into the loop which allows you to reride a few miles of the trail that you would have just completed. By doing this you get in +/- 10 miles of trial riding.

Last night's storm left a small tree down approx. 1/2 mile from the end. Bunny-hoppable, tho. Also, there is a dead-looking tree leaning over the trail just after the first road crossing. While the tree is plenty high to ride under, the base of it looks dead and barely able to stand on it's own. A good wind could knock it down (hopefully not onto anyone!).

Trail was nice this morning but I don't know how fast. I guess it was me. I did 3 laps and tonight my knees hurt so bad I can't walk. Geez, I hate getting old.

Trail surface or RED WINGS awesome efforts and results from last night - could not resist that one. Thanks for the trail report. On another note, Novi had one tree down in the 1st mile. Be careful. :lol:

I think that tree was removed by the Tuesday night ride group. There was a lot of testosterone in bike shorts out there!!!

Maybury was in decent shape yesterday...........UNTIL the storm hit. :x Got 1 lap in, then the monsoon hit. It really came down for about 20 min or so. Me thinks it might not be too good today.
