I think that's a smart move. Several years ago I went to Cadillac after a 20" or so heavy storm and the trees were down all over. Talking to a couple guys they were standing on the trail for a rest, luckily with their helmets on and they said 6-8" diameter a branch snapped off and glanced off the one guys helmet and shoulder. That's another danger.

Yeah, I've done that a few times, no fun. I'm thinking it was March of 2012 that the lower got hammered with wet heavy snow. We were at Houghton Lake & it plain sucked!!

I'm not bitchin' just wondering? Maybe they are all out getting after it?


The MSA page rarely is updated. Facebook is the best source for information regarding current trail conditions. Most clubs have Facebook pages and provide pictures and videos of what the trails look like. Takes all the guess work out of it.

Early March 2012 I drove up to Grayling in horrible conditions from Indiana. Rode all Sat. and when I got to the Sup 8 where I had stayed the night before they had no power and threw us all out. Some here may have been tossed out with me. Ride Safe.

Give the clubs time to clean things up in the areas where there are down trees.
