as said above. it does have some crazy erosion going on all over the place. probably the worst I've ever seen it.
I'm prob the only one that likes it this way. the most fun I've ever had out there. it has an "all mountain" kinda feel to it now :)

Trail is in good shape today. I also noticed the erosion on some of the uphills and downhills. The trail is still very enjoyable. There is a tree down about .5 miles from the RC air field. It is about chest high and could be removed with a hand saw. Otherwise the trail is firm and fast.

Did PLRA today on my fat bike. The tree is still hanging as noted, lots of loose hills, no mud.

Any word on condition today? The Royal Oak area (where I'm at) got hit with decent rain yesterday but not sure about if the trail is rideable today or not.

Total Official rainfall was 0.34 inches by 8PM last night at the White Lake NWS station you can see from the "Chute" around mile 7. You can always check here: http://w1.weather.gov/data/obhistory/KPTK.html for current data.

A little FYI FWIW: the PTK in the above link denotes that it's data from the Pontiac/Oakland County Airport weather station. The White Lake NWS station (WHK) recorded only 0.11" for the 24 hour period ending at 8 am this morning. Here's the page that summarizes 24 hour precip for the region: http://forecast.weather.gov/product.php ... suedby=DTX

Either way, i think the trail should be plenty fine for a ride today. That's where I'm headed after work.
