Did a few at Commerce aka Hickory Glen about an hour ago, it was fine. Lots of deer running around. Two small puddles. No mud at all.

I was just out for a brief hike on the 2 track, it's far too muddy to ride. Please avoid for the next couple days.

Novi and Commerce drain quite differently.....please don't use Commerce/Hickory Glen as an indicator of Novi....Commerce dries extremely quickly but Novi likes to hold the water...especially in the first few miles....

Does this thread include multiple trails in the Novi-area, or is it only for Lakeshore?

I have been specifically asking about Lakeshore...

Will the Tuesday night ride be canceled today due to trail conditions?

You'll probably want to consult the Team Tree Farm Forum for this. Thus far it sounds like a 'maybe', leaning towards 'no'.

Dave and I walked some of the trail, and decided it's a go for tonight. Most of the trail is dry and firm and ready. There are a few mud holes, but it's only a few and they are defined areas that already needed repair and armoring.

Rode it this afternoon. I concur with the dry and firm statement. The mud-holes were mostly avoidable. Too bad it might rain again tomorrow afternoon...

It was 90% yesterday, After todays sun it should be close to 100%. After the years of the dedicated work that has gone on at Lakeshore (The Farm), has really paid off as far as draining. Just a few more good trail days and I think we might have it licked!!
