Trail is dry, fast and in wonderful condition. Great job volunteers! Large tree down just before expert. Lot's of warning, but still be careful.

Rode after work Friday with my wife who just picked up her new ride from RBS. Trail was in perfect shape and so was her bike thanks to the folks at RBS.

Hiked half of the trail yesterday... it was a little slimy. Might dry out quick with some sun and wind though.

I'm planning on riding with some co-workers today around 6pm. Anyone have any current updates on trail conditions?

Did you go yesterday?

How was it?

Can anyone else comment on the condition of the trails?

Trail is in fine shape. There are a couple low leaner trees to watch for - we'll deal with those soon.

Monday there were a few puddles scattered throughout the trail but I was surprised at how quickly it dried out given these mild temps. There was one tree that blocked the trail about a mile in and a few you had to duck to get under but all-in-all the trail is in great shape! Couldn't make it for the group ride yesterday but I'll be there tonight!

Happy riding,
Tony

During the Tuesday night group ride we took care of the one that was about a mile in..the leaners are still out there (or they were last night).

Didn't see any leaners on my 2 laps but the trail was perfect. Finally got the second lap under an hour. :lol:

Little bit of rain this afternoon here in Novi, but the trail was in fairly good shape tonight. Took care of those leaner trees yesterday.

Friday's going to be sunny and in the 80s. Enjoy!

Perfect conditions. Two laps after work Friday. Novi Parks did a nice job at the trail head also, but be careful in the loose dirt and bed edge trench. Enjoy before/if the weather turns.

Is it too wet for any of the trails today, since it rained this morning?
