Thanks for offering to help on a Sunday, we do have maintenance days on Sundays off and on, so we will keep you in mind.

Typically, new help is required to bring a 12 pack of Miller Lite on ice. (Just kidding on the Miller Lite.)

I see we probably got off on the wrong foot and would appreciate any help.

RIDE ON,

Just spent the day working on the trail at MMCC cutting out roots, firns, all down trees and any branches starting to crowd the trail.

Trail is in great shape and the new areas will continue to improve the more traffic we get on those sections.

Just got back from riding MMCC this am. Trail is in great shape, very fast and leaves are not an issue at all.. Hunting is not allowed inside MMCC. Only saw one other vehicle there and one guy riding trail while I was out. Put on 28 miles and it was very nice. Lots of deer and they are not spooked when riding next to them. Most didnt even move. Hoping to ride tomorrow as well. Started riding at 11 am and it was perfect condition weather wise.

Trail still has a fair amount of snow and ice on it... hoping it will be clear by Sunday or Monday.

The snow and ice have finally melted. Rode the entire 15 miles this afternoon and the trail is in great shape. Most of the branches are cleared as well.

Kudos to the people who built and maintain the MMCC trail! Rode it on Sunday and absolutely loved the trail. I'm from the Metro Detroit area and this trail rivals just about anything we have around here! Well done!

Rode the trail today, and it is in amazing shape considering the deluge of rain here this week. There is a massive tree down around the 9.25 mile area, easy enough to walk around though. Otherwise the trail was tacky, fast, and well maintained.

Was there 9/27 and trail was in great shape and fast!!!!! Leaves are falling but not a problem on the trail at all. Nice to see the development of the new section. And the new trail along the road is coming in pretty good, will take some time though.

No worries... the trail is very popular and ridden frequently, and is well marked with mileage markers on the main (Blue) trail. The Blue trail loop is 10 miles, with smaller loops (.5 to 1.5 mile) off the main loop. 16 miles total. Each trail is color coded. All of the single track trails on the property are for mountain biking, so it's tough to get lost. BTW -all trails are two way trails. Look over the map at the trailhead, or pick up a map there and you'll be fine. BTW, cell phone coverage is fine out there (at least for Verizon users)...

I'd be happy to meet you at MMCC to ride these trails once the snow clears if desired. Just PM me.

Rode the trail for the first time this weekend at Rust Shaker. Definitely one of the top trails in Michigan. It is very well maintained and has a little bit of everything.
You beat me by an 1:01:00, your son beat me by 19 minutes, and your wife beat me by 3 minutes. I'm glad you didn't have a grandmother racing! Board Member-TomE.
