With temperatures over 40 degrees today and a quick deep freeze overnight, we wanted to help you plan you riding this weekend! 

A crucial element to maintaining groomed trails in these conditions is the cooperation of trail users. Please stay off the trails if you're leaving any sort of rut; with such little snow, it's very hard to level the trail back out. If we're all smart Thursday and Friday, we'll have a great ride Friday evening and through the weekend. 

Winter Sports Singletrack, Traverse City: Yeti's Revenge is closed for the season. The DNR gave us permission to groom this section, and we've heard a lot of positive feedback about it from you! Please respect the tape on the entrances to this loop and leave it be; if we leave it as good as we left it, we may have more opportunities next for season trails next winter! Riding conditions should be improved by Friday afternoon and Saturday, with warmer temperatures making Sunday morning the end of prime riding time until we get more cold weather.

Glacial Hills, Bellaire: The trail is open and ready to roll. Watch for hard packed conditions to return Friday with the cool down, as well as great opportunities to ride Sunday morning as well. At this point in the season, the grooming team has decided to suspend operations, unless there are significant changes to the long-range forecast. 

Leelanau State Park Winter Trails, Northport: The trail is CLOSED until Friday due to soft trail conditions. Please stay off the trail until we get that promised freeze and have a bit of time to groom a flat, safe surface. The weekend should be incredible, however, so don't miss your chance to get out there! 

Cadillac Pathways, Cadillac: There is very little snow and soft conditions currently. Please stay tuned to any changes to trail conditions in the near future, and if you do choose to ride, make sure you're running a low tire pressure and riding safely, especially as the trail freezes over heading into the weekend.
