Poto: Heritage Park

For posting trail-specific conditions and problems

Postby SS Gregg » May 6th, 2008, 12:58 pm

Ya, lets not get started on the bandit trail building. Better to get permission and to do any trail construction throught the MMBA and the City of Adrian. Not sure who you spoke with, but I'd appreciate it if you wouldn't just come out and build trail. We are in the process of getting a GPS map of the park and any rogue trails won't help that effort. If you're looking to help, please contact me.

Do Not Avoid

Postby z_ries » June 4th, 2008, 10:12 pm

I ride the Heritage Park Trail a few times a week. This is not a trail that should be avoided. There may be some areas that have over grown weeds, however the good far out weighs the bad. This trail is fun and somewhat challenging for someone who does not ride often. I know that I find myself wore out from the constant uphill climbs that I come across.

Again I just want to remind everyone that this trail is overall a good trail to ride and should not necessarily be avoided if you are in the area.

Glad you enjoy it! Do you have any trouble getting around to all of the trail sections? That seems to be the complaint. We are working with the City on re-routing some trail that has been determined to be on private ground and then adding the trail to a GPS map they are working on at this time. More info on the map and a trail day to work on signage to come. . .

pm me your contact info if you want to know about trail work day plans.

Yeah it is rough to get around to all the sections. They are not very well marked, making it difficult. The map at the Stubnitz Center doesn't really help that much either, because by the time you get out there, there is nothing showing where to go.

going to be in the area of heritage on thursday the 26th of June, looking for someone who would like to play tour guide for me. I am riding across the state with the PALM tour and will be away from the computer most of the week. Ill check in here before leaving on saturday.

Only thing is Im not sure on times, but If its middle day- Ill just muddle around by myself for awhile, since I saw its a small park and you cant get too lost.
In transition to the northland.

Trail is good to ride. They have been doing a good job marking the trail. I was out last week and the trail was marked with pink ribbon to show where to go. There are some places overgrown but you can find other stuff to ride.

Went out to Heritage park tonight and rode for a bit. the trails are very dry due to lack of rain, but there are a few sandy spots, its marked pretty well now, and the weeds are cut back. didn't seem to get eaten up by mosquitos either so that was good

nice to see a Sunday work day as I can actually make those. I am tentatively saying that I can make it down from Jackson to help out. But I may be leaving that day for a business trip out to New York.

Let me know what I can bring to help out. I have never rode down there so I will probably plan on bringing my bike down as well.

Going to head down on Sunday morning as of tonight. It will be me and my buddy Eddie. Let me know if anyone wants to meet up with us. This trail kicks ass if you haven't been.

Does anyone have a map of this trail? My friend at work and her husband went here sunday and said they were a little lost (although I did tell them to call me and I would be their guide...) Thanks.

With all of the rain, this trail is badly over-grown. The City of Adrian has recently lost their forrester and the guy that did maintenance/mowing at the park. While some work has been done, much more is needed. We will need to schedule a work day, but I need to establish a new contact with the City to get approval to move forward. I will post more as we get some work going. Sorry about the bad news. Hopefully, we'll have it cleared out shortly.
