Default Trail Conditions 1-26-21 & New Page Link

Quite simply trail conditions all across our system are extremely marginal right now. There is ok spots, but mostly it is very very thin with snow that settles down to nothing. The RR Grade is mostly white rocks, and with a couple of sleds you will poke through most everywhere else. The couple of areas where loggers are running are down to ice. The test panning out of Trout Lake did not reveal good results as hoped - all of the conditions were there to make a good base, but it apparently did not work as normal.

Therefore there is no reason to run the groomers until we get 5-6in of decent snow, which is not in the forecast right now. We need Ma Nature to help out once again. For most of the last decade we have had lower snow, but we usually are able to get good trails out of it - we just don't have enough right now to do anything.

I was trying to let Wayne gather the troops and get a bit more organized on facebook, but a few people have figured out the page so:

I will let them take care of stuff from here.

Over the weekend we rode the Cedarville connector to the railroad grade up to Burma Grade (Tr 2), then up 471 to come in the S side of Trout Lk. It was ok, but you do get quite a few clicks from gravel popping thru.

Trout Lk to Rudyard trail was very good. Trout Lk to Strongs good until you cross 123 the last little bit into Strongs. Brimley had less snow, Raco area quite a bit more.

We spent most of our time off the trails and on seasonal / forest roads which were very nice. Just over 100 miles each day, Sat/Sun/Mon and came back to camp for late lunch/early dinner. Good to get some fresh air, make sure everything ready for bigger days.
