Maybe we need a new sub forum for outhouse conditions. Riveting stuff.

A little late but, rode West & North yesterday afternoon. West trail was in excellent condition with only very minor "slightly soft" spots. One smallish tree limb across the trail on the Lake Trail "boardwalk" which I moved to the side. Even the North Loop was 99% dry :shock:

Trails should be perfect today!

EDIT; BTW I did NOT check the crapper :lol:

Rode all of the East and it was perfect! Had to stop at 4 miles in and restore a section of trail that was repaired last Saturday on our trail day. Everyone needs to spread the word that no one is to alter the trails without going through the trail coordinator. If you see something that looks altered call your trail co. Before atempting to change it. The trail co's work with the DNR. My number is 810-610-3478. If there are ever any questions please don't hesitate to call. Thanks: Ron HTC

Road West and half of East yesterday evening. Both West and East are in great shape. East does have some sections with a good amount of leaves still, but this is expected at this time of year.

Thank you to those of you for the recent maintenance.

The leaves may be removed after the first of June. They are always left there to protect the steep sections of trail tread from erosion during the spring rains, usually the last of April and first half of May. By June the tread is hard enough and can be raked or leaf blown. And yes we do have a leaf blower for that if anyone wants to use it latter. Thanks. Ron

West (& Lake) and North were excellent with no obstructions. Which I was amazed at because of all the high wind the past week. Go out and crank it!

Rode Grubers Friday night. Trail was in good condition apart from one short (but deep) mud patch in the Orchard loop which I hiked around.
One concern was that someone had deliberately built a barrier from 5 branches and logs across the trail. It was on the fast sweeping corner about 1/4 mile into the combined North/East section of the trails. It was easy enough to clear but there was no way it was an accidental blockage.
I have reported the incident to DNR as well.

Rode Gruber's up to the orchard loop and took the out. Tree across the trail on the straight away between the start and finish ends of the Orchard loop. It's hip high and will need a chainsaw.

Rode North twice and West including Tech and Lakeshore. Trail in the best shape I can remember in April in the past 20 years! I suggest we let the leaves decompose where they are to build up some of the washed out areas. Still one of the best (hidden gem?) trails in Michigan!
