Wow, only my second time out on the Murray lake trail yesterday - what a hoot. With much better personal fitness, and a much better bike this time around, I absolutely loved this trail. No trees or obstacles at any point along the entire 10-11 mile length. Great maintenance work, thanks to all that are contributing. Definitely quite loose and sandy in many areas, but I don't see how you can avoid that in southeast Michigan when the summer has been as hot and dry as this one. By and large the majority of the trail was packed, hard and fast.
The newest "found" loops covers some really nice terrain. But the whole thing is off camber.... when do we have the bench cutting party? Or is the hope that it will flatten out over time with sustained use?
Will be nice to use the new causeway over the creek once its done, and not have to dip out into the road, for sure. Great work on that too!
Final bonus form riding last night - zero bugs. None, at all. Did almost whack a surprised deer, though.
Oh and p.s., why is the campground closed?
