I got some much-appreciated help with the hand saw and the fallen tree on the Snake climb is now rideable.
It's still there, and hopefully the park will finish the job of clearing it but it's rideable now.
(You just have to roll over the small log and around the cut-off large one)

Enjoy.
Pete.

The "OH $hit!" tree in the rollercoaster has been pushed aside. It's still partially on the trail but easily avoided now.
I asked the park to clear it, so at some point it will be removed.
Thanks to those who stopped and helped clear it.

The builders have asked that we all stay off the new trail.
They want it to set-up a bit.
Let the rain and time pack the trail bed and the surrounding soil.

Thanks.

I’ve read posts talking about riding the new trail. It’s still not supposed to be ridden yet, right?

That's what the builders have asked.
Today I fixed the caution tape that was put in place to keep people out.
Very tempting I'll admit but give it time.

Got out this morning and repaired the rotted section of the little boardwalk in the Pines.
Did a little trimming there while I was there.

From what I saw in the Pines, all the original trail sections should be rideable now after the overnight rain.

Please stay tay off the new stuff.
Two reasons,
1) it's officially "not open"
2) more importantly, it is freshly dug, graded and smoothed trail. It's like a sponge right now. A wet sponge.

Sorry if this isn't the right place to ask this question. I am heading out to ride some of the trails on the east side (coming from Milford) and was wondering about this "new flow section" at Stony I have heard about. Can anyone provide me some info as to where it is in relation to the regular trail? I haven't rode Stony in about 6 years. Thank you.

As far as the new trail section(s). I talked with the builder today.
He's now gone for a couple weeks.
As he left town, he "closed" the new trails. That being said, he encourages riders to contact the park and ask them to open the trail.
(Technically, it's up to the park to allow riders.)
Also, let the park know what you think of what's been built so far. There's more to be built and there's still time to influence the other builds. (One way or the other)

Tell them to build another line like Big Air, haha. That was the 2nd rowdiest DH in SE MI and now it's gone for another cookie cutter flow section. RIP.

Where is the rowdiest downhill in SE MI? I need to try it! I hit 28mph on Big Air but still had to grab some brakes because I was to chicken (or lack skills)!

H e double hockey sticks on Wheels at Poto! It's the downhill after the sun tan climb. Go full speed and huck the root drops all the way down. Hurry up before it inevitably gets neutered like all the fun downhills around for sUstaInAbIlITy
