Trail was Dry and rideable as of Thurs.25th. 1 tree across the trail .02 mi. past the airstrip on M-36. Needs more bike traffic, alot of hoof prints and some 4 wheeler tracks.

Lots of hoof prints between Kelly Rd and town of Gregory. Makes for a very bumpy ride, great for all your Paris Roubaix fantasies. Smooths out quite a bit between Gregory and Stockbridge. Some softer sandy spots to watch for.

Stop ahead sign down just east of the 5.5 mile marker in the paved section.

Unless you like bike whacking, the eastern terminus is not as Google suggests at the curve on M36 by Maxey. Best to bail off or enter on Hamburg.

Don't know if anyone has been out on the sections west of Stockbridge in a while (or ever for that matter) but there has been some significant work done going toward Jackson. It is still a little rough, but not near what it used to be. With colder weather coming, it might be a fun ride one it refreezes. Especially for some of you fat bike owners (yes, I to am jealous of you!).

Highly recommend a Fat-Bike for the sections after Stockbridge. The further you go the rougher it gets. But it is a great ride.

For those who would like to get off the roads, the section from Stockbridge to munith is ridable at least with the fat bike. the wind is terrible but the scenery is nice. saw a few turkeys just prior to munith, boy did they make me hungry! also if you stop in munith for a bite to eat, big chucks pizza has coneys that are fantastic. apparently not many people around here have seen fat-bikes, it generated some conversations!
