Would it be possible to get trail maps updated on the website to show the new loops?

Rode Saturday, and the trails are in excellent shape.....just watch out for the "brown ice"!

Also.....not sure if someone already reported this or not, but there's a tree down on Murray at the 1.9 mile mark. It's immediately after a downhill section and comes up at you fast, so be aware! It's not a large diameter tree, but it's long enough that I couldn't move it by myself.

Rode Murray lake, lost and found, whole loop was in good shape. Heavier leaf cover and twigs than Island Lake but overall it was drier. MTB season is here in SE MI.

Did the whole circuit including Torn Shirt this afternoon. Trails are in great shape under the leaves.

Tree down on Murray about 2 miles in on the downhill after the 4-way intersection. Will need a saw to remove.

Not a wet, soft, or muddy spot anywhere on the entire Murray Lake trail. Actually, there are a couple of spots of dry loose sand. That tree is still over the trail at the bottom of the hill near mile #2 -- this is the downhill after the first posted short cut around mile 1.8.
