A few more laps today, a bit sandy out there. Assuming that tonight's rain will pack it down a bit.

I rode up here on May 10th. Trail was in pretty good shape. Two down limbs were the only thing I had to stop for. I moved those off the trail.

Rode this trail recently and enjoyed it. If you are in the area I recommend you stop to check it out.

Late report. Rode on Sunday and the trail was in great shape other than the typical sandy sections.

Rode this trail on 7/24/15 and it is better than I remember. I wish this trail was closer to home.

Has anyone fat biked this trail? My family has a place miles from here. Was up there last weekend and drove by on the way to view the elks...saw a single track trail entrance to the left of the tennis courts and the two track trail that was groomed for XC skiing.

I'm intrigued...

Trail is in great shape and has great flow. Fun trail flying under the radar.

Wow, as Steve says, fun trail. Definitely worth a stop here.

Just under six miles of really nicely flowing stuff, a good sprinkling of roots, and beautiful trees. Maybe a two minute drive from Jay's Sporting Goods (behind it) in Gaylord. Very easy to follow route, gets plenty of use so it's nice and clear. Lots of fun!
