Any help grooming would be appreciated. Contact me me through this forum. We're just getting started on this program and learning as we go along.

I doubt grooming is a concern now. Have to love SEMI (not) - freeze - snow- warm - melt - rain - freeze - ice. Ugh.

How'd the SnowDog go for you? We had to remove the side plates to get ours to move through deep snow, but it turned out this was necessary anyway to fit well between trees. After that it worked well.

Took off our side plates too. It worked well. Not much chance to use it. Steve, I've been trying to reach you through the PM system of this forum and can't. Ping me at chisbang(at)gmail.com so we can establish contact.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is inviting people to provide input on a draft general management plan that will guide the future of Maybury State Park (Northville Township) in Wayne County. The DNR will host a public input meeting Tuesday, March 5, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Northville Community Center banquet room, 303 W. Main St. in Northville.
In addition to the online survey we participated in last year, this is an opportunity to make your voices heard in person.

Is there somewhere we can view the plan prior?

I did not read the whole plan, but two things pop out.
* 1, Rick Synder this Rick Synder that - you know that all is going to be rewritten and maybe not to the better.
*2, No more new trail miles, - expect to fight to maintain status quo

So, read that plan and find the landmines for future Mountain Bike trails.
Expect the flavor of the plan to change very soon. (Rick is gone)

Mountain Biking is the number one activity which most influences peoples' choice to visit Maybury. p. B-20. Yet,
In general, with the exception of connections to the regional non-motorized trail network, new trails that increase the overall mileage in the park will not be considered.
p. 25.

On the other hand, 0.28% of people come primarily for Shelter/Pavilion Rental. But guess what? Part of the 10 Year Action Plan is to
Install electric service at one or more park shelters.


I suggest you come and make your voices heard.

While I’d love more trail I think Maybury is already very trail dense with hike, bike, paved, and horse trail.

For the most part I agree. The one thing I do think would be nice is if we could get approved use of the horse trail or approval to cut a dedicated bike trail coming into the park from Napier Rd.
