I still haven't made it out there to clean the place up a bit. I have been very busy at work and riding other places. it's hard to turn down going for a ride for hard work instead. I am taking a 2 week mtb trip starting next week going to traverse city, boyne, marquette, copper harbor, and then up into canada for some fishing/local mtb trail. when I get back I will have to make a week that I go to the bike park to clean it up and remark the parts of the trails I know of. I will post what days I will be there once I know for sure so anyone willing to give me a hand or just want to meet up and ride for a bit can find me. I'm thinking I will spend a few days there and just throw up a hammock to sleep in. The way I see it the township can't get mad at me for camping in their park if I'm there to clean it up. I will make sure I bring some wasp spray so if I do run into that nest I can take care of it.

Did I hear correctly that the Refuge Bike Park is no more?

Some time ago it was logged and for whatever reason, hasn't "opened." Haven't been there in years.
