Great ride today. Still a bit slow / damp in some spots but most of the wet is gone.

Thanks to trail genie that brought a chainsaw out.

Pontiac Lake is in great shape.

Rode the trail this afternoon (Sunday 29th). Conditions don't get any better than these. Get out there and ride it!

I ran the horse/connector trail from cross rd to campground yesterday and it was fine. I would think the trail is fine today. Enjoy.

Yeah, surprised the heck out of me coming down that hill. Shortly after the long technical climb after that I passed a rider that had a chainsaw strapped to his back so it may be gone by now..

Any recent reports? I'm thinking of trying the trail for the first time finally this weekend if it's dry.

Encountered two guys on the trail last night on E-MTBs. Super lame, and they weren't handicapped either so let's not use the "e bikes are good for people who are handicapped and cant ride anymore" excuse. They were flying. Our trails aren't even that hard and E-MTBs dumb them down even more. It's seriously so lame guys.

There's two guys who routinely ride eMTBs at PLRA. They know they aren't allowed, and don't care.

Please contact the DNR directly and complain to them. If you have a license plate from their car or whatnot, all the better.
