Since winter is just around the corner, and this is so close to my house, I have been riding this more and more to get a quick ride in. It's hard to not ride it when it's a mile from your house.
Most of this is clear, at least from the Kalamazoo entrance all the way to the fish ladder in old town. There are a few spots that the sun never hits, so they are still snow covered, and iced over. Going under east bound Saginaw is treacherous, as the river has gone over the trail, and frozen across the bridge. I walked it today, since it was frozen. I will probably just cross Saginaw in the future to avoid any potential issue.
The lack of foot and bike traffic made for a really nice ride today. I did see a few people out and about near mid day as it warmed up a little. I did have a small incident with another person, who came onto the trail near LCC and really wanted to see my bike. He called over a few times to let him see my bike. I didn't hang around to see what he wanted. I have never had an issue in the past with anyone on the trail, other than my wife being verbally harassed by a few drunk homeless guys.
Heading out towards Hawk Island and the trail is immaculate. All of the bridges are clear, as is the trail. This is probably my favorite part, and honestly, this time of year, it is beautiful out there.
