Its actually rare to see horses out there to be completely honest. They do use their trails but no where near as often as the cyclist. The reason you likely seen some signs out there is that they had some type of event last weekend I believe. I rode Sunday morning and seen a few spots of droppings from them as well.

The trail was fast on Sunday, 09DE18.

Two trees down as I recall, Both chainsaw-worthy.
On on the initial climb, about halfway up to the first driveway. There is an opening just big enough to get thru, albeit while off the bike. (There is a small one before that as well but that one is ride-able)
The other was just before "Double Trouble"

Please do not ride the regular mtb single track trail unless the temperatures are below freezing. Did the winter route on my fatbike yesterday, and in the areas where I crossed the single track I saw deep ruts from some idiot who rode the trail. Just because there is no snow does not mean we don't have to wait for spring thaw.

Bought my annual pass. 1st ride at Addison this year today and it was great. Nice and tacky. Rode late morning to beat the rain.
Does anyone know what construction is going on near parking lot where old paved path is closed? Looks kind of like they are making another parking area?
The Oakland County police were doing practice exercises in an open field with several horses and a helicopter. Lots of sirens and flares shooting in air.

In case it might be helpful to you, you can park on Lake George Road, in a side of road actual parking area right where you can enter Bald Mountain North, then ride your bike up a 1/4 mile or so to an actual gate opening into Addison. I always park there just because it's more convenient and sometimes I do Addison + BM North and this is a convenient mid-point.

Thanks for the tip Jreyst. I do prefer to park at Addison as I feel my car is safer and all the contents inside. A very secure place to park. Also I tend to only ride at Addison and not Bald Mountain much. I see that from this blog you also tend to ride a lot of the other trails I ride as well. I ride a Moots YBB and wear a red helmet so if you see me on the trail say Hey.

Will do! I haven't been up to Addison in some time due to it taking so long to dry out fully in the spring but I'll be up there for sure sometime soon. I drive a red Chevy Silverado with a cap on back and ride a Giant Trance 3 so if you see my bike/truck throw a rock at me or something (don't hit my truck or bike though!)

Rode two laps yesterday. The trail is in almost perfect condition despite the recent rain. Couple of muddy spots, but not bad. Easy to hop over / manual through except in one or two cases. Fantastic trail as always!

Good shape yesterday, 6/4. Couple mud spots around double trouble, but dry apart from that. Very grippy!

Trail was in fantastic shape on Wednesday -6-12. Looks like Pauly put down a lot of pea gravel in damp areas which really has helped.

MiSCA will be holding a race on the trail Aug 25th. I would expect that a lot of scholastic MTB teams will be visiting the trail in preparation for the race. Please be courteous if passing or being passed.
