The weather looks interesting this weekend. It looks like it may barely get to freezing temps tonight. Does anyone have a sense as to whether or on the trail will okay early tomorrow (before 10) or not?

The Upper Macatawa trail was too greasy today still, likey due to the morning frost. I'd plan for Yankee.

The trails are closed until further notice. The chain will be put up and locked tomorrow a.m.(12-23-14) The rain can not drain through the frozen ground and riding it will cause trail damage and widening worse than ever!

From Friends of Luton Park on Facebook:

"The trail is back open! But please do not ride the Orange Loop for another week. Also stay off the trails during or after a rain and when muddy. Right now there are a few muddy spots but ride straight through them to avoid widening the trail. Yeah spring!"

Trail is dry and in good riding shape. Watch out for the loose gravel on curves in a couple spots.

Tree down on orange about half way through and one down on blue in the little desert loop next to the field.
