A friend and I rode Addison Oaks last night and the trail is in excellent condition! We were surprised that there was not a wet spot on the trail at all when Lake George road had a lot of puddles and the blacktop section of the trail was damp. The rest of the trail was completely dry and packed very hard which made the trail extremely fast. We don't get out this way very often and had a blast. After the first loop was done my friend said "That was so much fun, I think we should ride it again". I said "Definitely" and we rode a second loop. I wish this trail was closer to where I live. Thank you to the trail co-ordinators who put in so much time keeping this trail up. You are doing an excellent job. This trail is a blast.

You're welcome. But, just to be clear, Oakland County Parks and Rec supports this trail so heavily that there is little we as TCs do trail maintenance wise. We advocate and work on the relationship, but unlike some of the other parks where the trails maintenance is effectively delegated or ignored, Addison Oaks is almost all done by the park. If it wasn't for them, and their employee Pauly, we wouldn't have such a great place to ride.

Thanks for clearing that up. I figured Pauly was the trail co-ordinator but now I know. In any case, thanks Pauly for all of the hard work you have spent maintaining this fine trail system.
