Welcome to northern MIchigan with our natural resource - Sand
You took the short loop is all. By taking all lefts you ride the longest loop. That spot you speak of is on our list to clean up this year. With the several torrential downpours many parts of the trail are washed over and eroded pretty badly. In fact, this section is slated to be re-routed for next spring.
Thanks for your comments.
The two tracks are actually part of one of the largest cross country ski systems in the midwest.
