Grayling Trail Report – Fay’s Motel – 02/20

Greetings Sledders,

What a weekend. Two tractors vs hundreds of sleds. I’d bet on the sleds winning out every time and that certainly was the case last weekend. It took us until Monday but we got all the trails back into very good condition and it looks like they will stay that way thru Friday. After that another ride on the weather roller coaster could be headed our way. At this point it’s anybody’s guess as to how it will shake out.

We took the day off from grooming today to slather a little grease here and there on the tractors and we will focus on some much needed re-arrangement of snow on the corridor at the golf course that is part of the trail thru town tomorrow and we will be back at grooming on Friday. We will be back at our usual weekend schedule unless the weather says otherwise.

LOVELLS TRAIL CLOSURE: The military will be closing the gates on the Lovells trail the first two weekends of March. This closure is due to training activity on what is known as the Range 30 MPRC and the gates block off a safety zone that is meant to keep everyone out of harms way. I will post this alert several times between now and the scheduled weekends.

Next report when we have a better idea what to expect for weather for the weekend.

Ride Often and Please Be Safe,
Keith, Sandy and The Girls

No not early. I bought our trail permits today.

I bought a sled yesterday if that counts

Still 3-4 months until any riding

That is right next door to my In Laws Steve and Pat Evans

They could have waited till a dryer day it rain a bunch yesterday, they left tracks and tore up the nice packed surface

I'm glad I ride in the mountains where you don't see a groomer or a groomed trail. I couldn't do the flat land😂🤣

Wow I used to be a contract mower for the State of Texas wish I would have had something like that to cut grass with but I don't understand how they're leaving ruts when they're using a tracked vehicle like that

Anyone notice the huge boulders down by otsego lake... disaster waiting to happen when they get covered in snow and someone’s ski clips one!!

27 from waters down to Frederic needs to be repaved. With all the accidents on 75 that is the go around route. It's so bad they can't even stripe it anymore

Trail 7 is the new "bike/walking" trail, cant ride my dirtbike on it anymore.

It stops at waters. Still the same to Frederic

that trail is totally fucked they made it so narrow with a wire fence. How is anybody going to pass a groomer. They made that trail unsafe. Let's see how many people get fucked up because of that wire fence this year.

It’s to slow the throttle jockeys down some. But the rocks are a problem. Many cedar post got broke last year. The snow was derp

Keeps the kangaroos away,

Have they fixed 27 yet!!

Why I never take the plow off the four wheeler

Call the dnr Paige perry 989 732 3541 express your concerns complaints before they try to take that trail tell all your freinds call you have to be heard...👊

Grayling Trail Report – Fay’s Motel – 02/12

Greetings Sledders,

If we get what is forecast, which by the looks of things we will, or at least come close, the trails should end up in good to very good condition.

Groomers are running full bore and will continue throughout the weekend.

This should prove to be the best riding of the year, plenty of snow to keep you off the ice base and the timing is great. Any snowfall on an early week day gives us plenty of time to compress and compact before the weekend traffic hits.

Gotta Go!!

Ride Often and Please Be Safe,
Keith, Sandy and The Girls
