Ogamaw Hills Trail condition

Postby Bitterale » May 29th, 2004, 3:16 pm

Just got back form riding Ogamaw Hills. Pretty fun fast ride even though I forgot my computer and "clickey shoes".

Couldn't get up to the overlook because there was a lot of water in the sticks. Goff farm, Ravine and cloverleaf, or basically the north side areas, were all dry. Some areas have newly fallen trees so you need to be awake while screamin down the hills. Between 3 and 4, I think, there is about a four inch tree that's snapped about 6 or 8 feet in the air. It needs a saw to finish it off...or maybe a couple months of rotting and a little vibration from someone passing underneath. Further along there is a freshly fallen giant fur crossing the trail. An official reroute may be needed there.

I'm only about an hour away if maintance is ever scheduled.

Rode VASA single track over the holiday weekend. Trail was great and fast. Very enjoyable ride..............much different ride than during the Iceman! Trail is in good shape with no obstacles.

Shingle Mill Pathway

Postby risnewski » June 18th, 2004, 9:27 pm

I hiked the Shingle Mills Pathway today--beautiful place worth coming back many times for a ride or a walk. Only one tree over the trail today, just a couple miles north of the HQ building. otherwise the trail is in good shape. Despite recent heavy rains, there's only a few muddy spots.

Take some extra time and enjoy the scenery.

FIRE DANGER

Postby SPAMINATOR » April 11th, 2005, 7:34 am

Please be aware of our extremely dry conditions when you make the trip up north. With high winds, moderate temperatures and no rain, the leaves and undercover is very dry.
EXERCISE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN IN THE WOODS.

thank you :)

Please, no unattended fires. 8) :shock:

We did the trail this weekend. It was a great ride. Always is a great ride.
It was raining and trying to snow when we left the trail yesterday. The danger of fire is probably less now.

Thank you for the input. We still have a high fire danger until the new green stuff starts growing.

Thank you all for your fire awareness and cooperation. We didn't have any major fires yet. At least for now the fire danger has passed and the northern chapter trails and camping areas have a LOW fire danger.

Thanks again!

ANYONE that has rode Ogemaw Hills, could you please send me a Private Message or Email me because I have a few questions about the trail. I am going up north in mid July and would like to ask you a few questions if you've ever rode there. Thanks
