I'll be in Saginaw for an upcoming weekend and should have time to ride a trail on Sat morning. From a quick look at the Trail Guide it'll probably be either Pine Haven or Midland City Forest. If I can do only 1 Saginaw area trail which should I choose?

I'd say City Forest as well. I haven't been out to Pinehaven in years, but I know City Forest is well maintained.

Rode this morning and had a good time. The first few miles were windy forest trails, but the 2nd half started to get a bit challenging (Gnu loop and beyond). Several fun jumps and I had to ride the cambered wood bridge several times to see how fast I could rail it.

No trail obstructions at all. Everything in good shape. Fun trail!

Rode the trails today. The wooden bridge/berm on the Gnu Loop has a broken section that needs to be repaired. Myself & another rider put some logs/branches on both sides to hopefully warn anyone off from trying to ride it. Also there is a tree down between the wooden berm & the intersection of the Gnu & South Loops. It was too big to take care of with a hand saw. You can ride under it however.

My photographer/girlfriend lost a pair of prescription sunglasses somewhere on near a trail intersection during the Tailwind Race. If anyone finds them please PM me.
Thanks!
