You must be missing something, or you somehow have an old / very cached copy. There are additional markers, the key area is different, some of the trail segments have had their highlighting changed...

It's caching it for some reason. It shouldn't be as the date/time stamp for the file is updated and the server is sending a Last-Modified of earlier today:

About 3 yards of dirt moved today. Watch out for loose gravel till it rains/gets packed in, mostly leading up to "nessie".

Both ridable dead fall on the ridge trail has been removed also.

Go ride and enjoy!

Shelby trail project presses on despite lost federal funding:

http://www.candgnews.com/news/shelby-trail-project-presses-despite-lost-federal-funding

Just not with what most of us were hoping for.

Instead of constructing trails from Utica to Stony Creek through River Bends, Holland Ponds, Chief Gene Shepherd Park and the Macomb Orchard Trail as originally planned, Shelby officials now plan to forge trails from River Bends to the Macomb Orchard Trail, and from the Macomb Orchard Trail to Chief Gene Shepherd Park, as well as connect the Yates Trail to Chief Gene Shepherd Park.


So as of right now, now, no paved trail from Utica to the south end of River Bends :x

We will be looking at making improvements to the south end of the blue loop late fall/early spring.

I wonder if we can secure permission to trim/fix the potholes in the route between RB and Chopton. It'd at least help MTB and running folks who already use the route...

Steve,
I think you have the start of a good idea.
Once usage is established the RR crossing issue will diminish.

I for one find this to be phenomenal news. Connecting river bend to the MOT is much more important to me than riverbends to crp. Aside from the one dismount it is an easy and safe ride already.

I'd love see both but if I had to choose one this is it.

Went for a night ride at Riverbends last night. Trail was in great shape. Lots of leaves down already. Some corners were a little slippery, but nothing to worry about. The new return section was a little mushy but not enough to pizza cut.

I swear every time I ride river bends I end up going a different way and I have no idea how. Followed blue signs and ended up on a 0.5 mile scenic railroad adventure. That was fun. What did I do wrong with the blue trail?
