Rode Addison trail today and it was in perfect shape. If it rained the night before you would never know it. I was there between 3:00pm and 4:30pm and was only one there. :)
Oh, there were utility workers removing limbs above the power lines in the new section near the Lake George Rd entrance.

Rode Sunday and after all the rain on Saturday the trail was perfectly dry. Amazing work Pauly has done putting drainage in that trail. I saw him out there today working hard as usual..

Hey Everyone! Oakland County Parks and Recreation asked us to remind everyone that this weekend (Thursday the 24th through Sunday the 27th) the Addison Oaks Trail Riders are hosting an Equestrian camping and riding event at Addison Oaks. (Click here for the event flier.)

Since some of the mountain bike route at Addison Oaks is shared with equestrian trails (in particular the two track which parallels Lake George road), please keep an eye out for more horses than usual on the trails.

We rode a couple of laps around Addison Tuesday evening and the trail was great.

Pauly was rebuilding/reinforcing the berms on the South side. That cat sure can move a lot of dirt in a short amount of time. *thumbsup*

Great fall conditions out there today. The trail was nice right up until I taco'ed my front wheel. The report from the rest of my group was the rest of the trail was nice too.

Addison was amazing tonight. Rode 2 laps, about half was night. Got to watch out for those deer, I came close to a pack of 3 a few times. Pauly was out there with the leaf blower, so the entire second half after the paved straightaway is 100% leaf free! for now :icon_thumleft: There's quite a bit of horse leftovers on the two track though. Great riding

Rode Sunday November 3rd. It was in good condition except for one spot that needed to be walked, about a mile in from the sidewalk entrance. There was also 5 or so different trees across the trail that will need a saw of some sort.

Why did you need to walk the one spot? Mud hole?

Do you think any of the trees needed a chain saw?

Not likely to get out there before Thursday or Friday. It's entirely possible that stuff will magically disappear by then. :wink:

Rode Tuesday afternoon to take advantage of some warmer than usual weather for this time of year. Thermometer in car read 54 degrees when I finished at close to 3:00pm. As mentioned there are several trees down and some low leaners. Most need a chain saw. You do need to get off bike to get over or around most of them. Pauly has his work cut out for him so to speak. Also noticed that most of the leaves just about all came down at once and in some areas you cannot see the trail. Other than all that Addison is still a pleasure to ride.

Wanted to ride Addison today, but there is a sign saying the park is closed due to Deer Management. Is it only going to be closed on the dates posted on the sign. Or is it closed now? Just for safety decided to skip it. Did 2 laps of BM instead.

Bummer.. guess I missed that sign. I rode there tonight for my first after dark ride to test my new magicshine 1000's... Was very fun but lot's of trees down. I did see tons of deer in several places, had to yell a few off the trail right in front of me and then a half dozen or so eyes reflecting back at me from the big field when almost at the Lake George gate. Also, random question, is it general protocol to ride backwards after dark or not really? I ran into another guy riding with lights going the "wrong" direction but he didn't know for sure either if he was supposed to go the normal daytime direction or reverse at night. I said it didn't matter much since we each saw each other coming a looonnnnng way off with the blazing light coming from our lamps.
