The North Loop was clear today. Lots of leaves on the trail, lots of dampness, and a few spots were soupy, but still not bad for all the rain we've had.

Yes, a real good job on drainage and building high points on the trail!

Woah! Curious to see if anyone heard anything. Hunting would be my guess...

I sent a message to the DNR land manager to see if he had any details to share.

I run into Steve McGee occasionally, and there's a Holly Village Council meeting tonight. Sometimes he shows up at the meetings. If he's there, I'll ask him what happened. Steve is Groveland Township's Fire Chief.

Thanks Chris, it seems that Shawn at the DNR office was not aware!

Rode West Loop tonight and noticed some yellow tape hanging from trees at the top of the last Lake Loop Downhill and at the bottom of the hill (trail merge). So the incident might have been bike related as that is a prime location for a high speed crash. Hope it wasn't a bike vs. walker/hunter meeting around one of the corners. Guess we'll have to wait and see if we hear anything from F.D.

Trail was in great shape. That hanger at the top of the last Lake Loop climb is pretty low! And the North was perfect. I see some of the holes were filled and some gravel was added to some of the soft spots. Also that nasty root bunch towards the beginning was filled in and smooth. It will be ineteresting to see if it lasts. Good job though.

Just got back from sawing up that hanger on the Lakeshore Loop. Yea, it definitely descended some!

I second it looked like the event took place on the final hill on Lakeshore - saw the four wheeler tracks on it, but nothing that looked like a wipe out with disturbed leaves and all that. May have been further up the trail though.

I talked to Groveland's Fire Chief ... there was an apparent suicide on West yesterday. A single gunshot wound to the head from a pistol. The gun was found at the scene and the shot appeared to be self-inflicted. 27 year-old male found by a biker, who was then so shaken up that he crashed 5 times making his way to the end of the trail.
