We rode Ruby today for the first time. Had a great time... Fun and nicely maintained trail. We ended up getting there a bit later than expected so we missed our planned guided tour. Three guys we met in the parking lot quickly volunteered to take us around. I didn't get there names, but thanks it helped a ton.

We also had a quick chat with the owner after our ride. He came over to help us make fun of our one friend who scuffed up his arm a bit. Nice guy. :)

Overall a nice experience. :)

We rode the trail today for Ruby 50 miles endu race. This trail is fun and nice. Well maintain and the single track flow is just simply great!! Kudos to all Who made this trail and maintaining it!! Plus the river crossings is one of a kind. We'll definitely be back!!!

I rode this on Aug 3rd, really liked the trail, except wish I would've gone with someone who knew where they were going. Somehow, I got turned around and back tracked at the top of the "Hill" between the two river crossings. As I got to the bottom of a downhill run, I realized that I had climbed up that part of the trail a few minutes prior. So I climbed it again, and ended up getting turned around again. So I followed it all back. Fun trail though.

Might be heading to Lake Huron and this trail would be fairly close to where I would be. Is it still a trail? I have not seen a post since last fall so just wondering if anything has happened to the campground or trail?

It is open, just private. You will need to pay a trail fee however.

I was able to ride about half the trail today. Very little mud and no puddles. The river crossings were not a no go as water was running fast, high and strong. I was lucky enough to get a tour from one of the local trail guys (sorry forgot your name) it's definitely a awesome built trail and worth a few loops if in the area. I was beat from 5 miles of SUPing on Lake Huron in 3 foot waves so I could only muster up 3miles of trail.Image Some serious up down and switch backs await. I will return this summer. $2 park fee in drop box.

Anyone been out there lately that can report on the condition? Thinking about doing a few laps this weekend since I am camping in Emmett.

Emmett? I'd be more concerned about a recent update for the talent at Bisco's, buddy.

Interested to hear the update for Ruby, too. Nice time of year to be out there.

bisco's is an entertainment hotspot, of sorts, in beautiful downtown emmett. not quite the sarnia ballet, if you will.

Good to know....my first time visiting Emmett. With a town population of under 300 I can only imagine the 'talent' roaming the joint.
