Also a *beep* of ruts out there. Barely noticeable on the fat bike. :wink:

Trail is in good shape, ground is frozen, couple ice patches under the snow, but overall fun riding. To bad its going to rain and warm up tomorrow.

Paved path should be fine. Watch out for ice if it's below freezing, that thing gets icy.

Holy Bull Dozers Bat Man!
The tree near the dpw is gone, but it looks like they got a vehicle stuck. Like the in the Allstate add , it's just mayhem.
There is a other huge tree over the trail just after the start at the east end.
The trail is in good shape, except for 1 frozen bike track and many frozen runner tracks. The areas with water only had skim ice. (just after the bridge)

Great riding conditions out there tonight, save the last to posts are still unresolved. Unfortunately it does not appear these conditions will last after seeing the forecast for tomorrow.

Rode the paved trail over the weekend, and stopped by to see where someone said the Vehicle was stuck by the power station... it's not single track anymore... about 6 feet wide, tractor ruts... bummer. Trails still too wet to ride.. stay on the pavement.

Yeah, That is what I met by " Holy Bull Dozers Bat Man".
The trail runners will probably flatten a path before long.

If you are talking about the bridge that goes over the Clinton River in Heritage Park,
then yes it has been completed for awhile.
