Trail updates: 15 Feb 2019
HEAVY TRAFFIC!!! Stay Right! SLOW Down! This new snow is adding to our bases.
41: Great shape: some chop on bridge approaches with increased traffic.
413: This transition trail(41 to 7) has narrow tight corners and the traffic can be hard on them. There are good bases on the overall trail, but corners can get “snirty”
2West from Manistique: Good shape, traffic related deteriorating approaches at crossings, otherwise. Good.
2 East: Traffic has been heavier than normal on this trail. Bases are improving with each groom. This segment has multiple grooming issues and elevated traffic effects each differently. Bear Creek Swamp remains frozen, tight and dry with the “Blaney Bypass” issue resolving soon. (DETAILS WILL BE POSTED ON THE SITE)
421 Spur to Gulliver: Bases good, good trail conditions.
South of Big Spring: some corners deteriorated from traffic with minor approach chop; otherwise Good.
North of Big Spring: Good with the minor approach chop at crossings and some corners near the 413 junction and the Forest Road Crossings.
Some mechanical issues have taken groomers off trail for a run or two and their absence is noticed because of the increased traffic levels. We do the best we can with the available equipment.
WHEN YOU STOP, LOOK BOTH WAYS.
