The entire trail was mowed today. Also, all the wet spots have dried up. Add to that the meadow flowers are starting to bloom, and you have a good recipe for a nice ride.
In case anyone is interested, The north meadow gets mowed every Thursday morning. The river segment and two old road bed segments get mowed every two weeks, also usually on Thursday.
If you have time and would like to volunteer to help maintain the trail let me know: 734-426-5737. We need mowers and trimmers for the river and old road segments.
Regarding trail direction, we reversed it a couple of times to evaluate wear and riding fun. The consensus was counter-clockwise was best. Apparently we haven't gotten all of the maps switched to that direction. Thanks for pointing out the problem.
