I'm headed up to Evart for the 4th and i'm bringing my bike. I was just wondering if there are any trails there or any terrain worth riding.

Um yea only one of the best trails in the lp. Evart has a trail there. Its a riot. it is like 25 miles long. There are some big woops in a few sections. but if you can get past that it is a really nice trail. I just may be up for a ride out there if you give me a time.

I road Evart today. Parked at the Sand pit and should of guessed when we had to move a tree in the road to get by that the rest of the trail was gonna be like that. It needs to be cleaned up. How do you go about doing that? Could I just take the quad and a chain saw out and start cutting? It has been really dry up here and the rain just flooded everything today, fun ride. Steve.

I was curious of how the evart trail was. never had a problem last time I rode it. evrything is dusty right now due to the dry spell we have been having along with the oven effect!! We were planning on riding that next weekend since it is only a hour away.

Downed trees add character to the trail. The DNR frowns on unauthorized cleanup and unless you are certified to use the chainsaw they don"t want you cutting.

I believe that the KOM (Kent Ottawa Muskegon) chapter of the CCC is in charge of cleaning up the Evart trail. They probably have a fall cleanup scheduled.

Might want to give them a shout to let them know what is up with that trail
