I was out there 2 days ago on the fat bike, still alot of snow/ice in the valleys and north facing hills. We had -11 a few nights ago also. Fingers crossed for some warm weather soon.

How is the weather up that way? Trail Conditions?

I'm planning on a weekend trip to my in laws in Roscommon.

Snow/Rain mix this morning when I drove through there. Still some snow in the woods in the shady spots. I think it will be a few weeks.

Can anyone tell me how Hanson Hills is looking for this weekend? Specifically, if things work out, I'd like to ride all loops on Saturday afternoon.

It was fine last Saturday. We rode it all. Maybe 1-2 downed trees.

Thanks! That's great to hear. I've only been there a handful of times and never ridden the outer loop, so I want to give it a go. I'll be in Roscommon for a DNR conference and I'm hoping to head up to Grayling for a ride before heading back downstate.

Rode most of the trail except for a couple of the less accessible Blue connectors. All was in great shape except for two downed trees on the outer loop that I had to step over. Nothing huge, probably hand saw able, just a bit taller than my chainring.

There is a fair bit of deadfall and leaf cover on the outer loop which necessitated good trail following skills, especially as it was my first time out there. It gave me just what I wanted, though: a nice Northern LP trail ride.

Road Yellow today. Looks like the storms were pretty bad this last week. Four trees down, and have to lift your bike over at least two of them. (One can be ridden over, the other can be ridden around.)

I love these trails. Mostly dry even after all the rain.
