We expect the groomed trail (about 5 miles now) to be soft until Friday then good this weekend!
We know you're busy, so we've put a few things together to make sure planning your summer and fall events is as easy as possible!
The NMMBA Trail Series offers three events that celebrate the diverse and challenging trail networks that dot Northern Michigan, and to make sure it's easy for you to check each one of your list, registration for the Traverse City Trails Festival, Glacial Hills Challenge, and Bear Claw Epic is open and ready for you to get on board!
Each event offers a different challenge, and with one race per month, you've got plenty of time between races to preview the next course, put in miles, and enjoy the trails. We're excited to have the chance to highlight a different city for each race, too. It offers a chance for riders to explore Traverse City, Bellaire, and Cadillac, meet new people, and stay motivated for a full season of racing and riding.
Registration for all three events is open, and we it helps it make planning your season a little easier.

Patrick made it out to smooth out some deep footprints and add texture before the temperatures dive overnight. We expect the surface to be hard and fast tomorrow and most of Saturday. If the forecast for the weekend is accurate, the surface may soften later Saturday into Sunday. Use caution on the corners and even some straight aways along ridges where the lip has deteriorated leaving some off camber drop offs.
Looking at the long term forecast, we expect that this will have been the last groom of the season. We will keep you posted if that changes.
Thank you so much for supporting the grooming efforts at Glacial Hills. We truly hope that you have been able to enjoy the trails this winter!
If you have a chance to ride, today is the day. After a Sunday morning groom by Patrick, the groomed trail is in decent to good shape. With the warm up expected for Wednesday and Thursday, we will ask trail users to work off their Paczkis off of the groomed trails. We hope to groom shortly before and after the warm up which should set us up for great conditions this weekend.
