Trail was pretty good tonight....much needed heavy rain firmed things up. a few small soft spots but nothing major. Major tree has fallen approaching top of 3rd climb - it is leaning at head high 45 degree angle across the triail - heads up. Small baby heads and fist size rocks have multiplied and are everywhere now it seems. I’m spoiled after riding DTE Energy Foundation trail.

On Wednesday there was a large tree down that blocked the trail in two places. I was able to drag it to the side but its still crowding the trail a bit. It's in the middle of Segment 1 in the wooded series of switchbacks... about 100 feet before the benches and about 200 yards before the trail kiss.

No hurry, it's pretty much cleared.

Maybury was in overall good shape this morning with just a few soft spots, but plenty of damp leaves to keep things interesting!
