The down tree is at the bottom of the small downhill that is just before the 9.5 mile post...so it's right at about at the 9.4 mile mark...chainsaw needed.

Trail was in PERFECT condition today. The weather and the trail are combined to create a perfect riding experience. Hope lots of people take advantage of it.

Trail was again perfect but for the people walking dogs and leaving piles of doggie *beep* on the trail. I stopped 3 times and moved piles off the trail on my first lap but found new piles on the 2nd lap.

Rode 4 laps today. Apart from a few mud patches and puddles following Friday's storms, the trail is in excellent condition and riding nicely.
Plenty of riders out, including numerous families, enjoying the perfect early fall conditions.
Lots of deer around, taking advantage of the safe harbor of the park.
Some great fall weather coming up, will be out again....

We rode trail Sunday and it is in absolutely PERFECT condition. The flow of this trail is among the best in Michigan. We have ridden most trails in Michigan and Novi Tree Farm is without a doubt one of the best.
This next weeks weather forecast is so perfect so go out and enjoy.

The trail was great tonight. Rode from 12 1/2 mile and Dixon. That Strava segment isn't easy to find, but tonight it didn't recognize my ride anyway.

The trail was in very good shape last night. All was clear. Rode just before dark.

Judging by the parking lot (full all the way from trailhead to the bathroom house + a bunch of people parked in the front lot) I expected it to be packed on the trail but I didn't really see too may people out there. Not sure if that is normal for a Wed night or if something else was going on?

I'm planning on heading out there Monday afternoon with a couple of friends. Did it rain there today? If so, how well does it handle rain?

It drizzled much of the day, but not alot of rain: 0.15in

Suspect it would be fine by the afternoon.

Trail was perfect last night. Parked in the upper lot....because there was not a single spot to park from the rest room to the trail head. Never seen it that busy out there before. Looking for that bright yellow color, but probably still have another week or two. We took our 10yr old out for his first time Tree Farm ride. Hope the group that was finishing in the dark without lights made it out safely.

We found a pair of clear riding glasses around mile 8 or so. PM me if they are yours and you want them back.
