Michigan Trail condition update - West and East side

Recommended Posts

You upstaters mind giving us flatlanders a trail condition update periodically? Weather is warming and the snow may be melting and off the trails soon. I for one am itching to get out and ride.

I'd be interested in conditions in the Rose City/Mio area and Baldwin .

Thanks for any and all updates.

Snow covered with ice and mud. Early April is wishful thinking.

I'm itchen. Funny story. I was just working on the floor and I hear this thump,thump,thump. I think, Oh the washing machine is out of balance. So I go downstairs and nothing. Back upstairs, Thump,Thump, Thump,. Out to the garage and the Katoom is trying to start itself. I was out there yesterday moving things around and had it leaning against a shelf. It slipped a hair and was hitting the start button. Its telling me something.

Holy 80's movie memories Batman!!!:lol:

I"m anxiously awaiting spring to get here. I don't have trellies or studs, so I'll have to wait for slushy at worst. Looking forward to reports by you hardcore guys.

My brother went up to 61/Gladwin yesterday and said the trails probably weren't too far off from rideable - he just did a bit of testing in the scramble area. He estimated with the warmer weather today and tomorrow that it should be open by the weekend. I'm sure there will be sections with standing water as there always seems to be until May or so, but the sand should drain quickly enough.

Careful going thru those water sections early in the year. Last year on the first ride in Leota, all was good till I went thru a area with standing water. It was frozen underneath, I ended up going for a wet banana ride in icy cold water.

That icy cold water make it hard to find the banana? (OMG, did I just type that?)

I think I was on that ride, the helmet cam video was dated 4/17/09. I can't believe how good the trail conditions where that early in the year. I think Leota is a good first ride spot for April!:banana:
