Is there any news or updates on the proposed trail for Spring Lake area?

This all really sounds great. But what about existing trails like Aman park? It's a very fun place to ride but was closed because of rude riders. Funny thing is I go in there frequently in the summer and there are 2 cars at the most in the parking lot. What a waste! It's vastly under utilized. Somehow maybe it's time to revisit opening this park to trail riding. :)

we should consider trying to get it re-opened, I agree. I skied there this winter and it is in really bad need of trimming.

it was a Grand Rapids City Park in the 90's and riding was allowed there. The park is small and the locals complained of rude, speeding mountain bikers. The bike riders were kicked out and now it is a Ottawa County Park. Due to the limited size of the property (maybe 3 miles of trail) and close proximity to Grand Rapids (over crowding) it may be a tough sell.

I am sure you have heard of the Merrell Trail which trumps all these other projects right now. We are close to opening but need your financial help or volunteer labor. Are you a carpenter? We need some help. Are you a construction worker? We could use your help. Are you a excavation specialist? We could use your help. You get my point, we need a lot of help from anyone that may have a special talent or skill. And as always, donations to our chapter are most welcome and as easy as going to wmmba.org and clicking on the donate button. It defaults at $25 but you can clear the screen and donate as much as you want or can. To see what we are up to check this one out.........http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=usJcUyiVZdc&feature=player_embedded
