Michigan Trail Report

Grayling Trail Report – Fay’s Motel – 01/11

Greetings Sledders,

It was my turn in the seat this morning and I got a closer look at what’s going on with the trails south of 72.

We have lots of ice as expected and the conditions are fair to good for the moment. I say for the moment because of the traffic and what it will do especially on the high volume traffic segments like trail 7 to Frederic. We don’t have a lick of snow in the forecast until maybe Friday and that just adds insult to injury.

With winters like these why would anyone contemplate doing anything but snowmobiling?

We will groom until it doesn’t make sense to continue and will do our best with what we have to work with.

I feel more comfortable backing off to fair as a rating.

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


At Fay’s Motel enjoy direct access to the Grayling Area snowmobile trails.

The 2020 Yamahas are hitting the trails early I see...

lol of course theyre towing at least one M113

And they say its sledders that rip them up lol

That one being towed must be Chevy 😂

Don’t see any trail stickers in those !

FEMA Camps are taking reservations.....

Anyone see a trail permit? Lol

No doubt there is always something broken. Maintenance leads the way!

Dang miss those days but Bradley's not 113

I hope they got trail permits lol

We love having The Guard here! Thank you all for your service!🇺🇸

Hope they have ORV stickers the DNR is really cracking down in that area!

Did that "all over" Germany back in the early 70's. Early 70's? Geesh...

Michigan national guard hooyah!

They use that to get from MATES /north camp to south camp/ Camp Grayling!

Looks like the 7th tank was towing an artic cat.

Love riding in the tank trails on my sled


It's a tank trail. The sleds just get to use it.

Very cool but harsh on the rds

We was camping 2 years ago off 7 mile rd and they showed up in our camp. They said they was just field training. About crapped our pants 👖 💩

Spent many spend summer up there

This is why I love grayling so much

Brings back memories. I love seeing the tanks moving

Been there done that. I was 17 in the 1st /246th armor. From Dewagaic, Mi. Best thing my parents did was to sign so I could go into the National Guard at 15. Thank you mom and dad!!!!!

Time to close this out for another year.

Had some Ohio shroomers in over the weekend, they picked 400 blacks on Thur and Fri. I'm not sure how they did on Sat. I didn't see them before they left early Sun.
I can only assume they had another good day. Had another guy that went up to Vanderbilt and didn't find anything. Go figure.

My super shroomer from Indiana (doug) has picked 600 over the last five days mostly grays and yellows. He hunted with Neal (the Tamale man with Tamales in hand) on Sun
They picked 90 blacks, grays and yellows. They spent most of their time showing each other sites to hunt for different types of shrooms. Doug will be here for the next week or
so picking yellows. We've already started giving shrooms away. What a great guy!! Gotta love him.

It's been an interesting year. We got a late start then every color is here at the same time.

Well hope you all have a great summer and winter. See everyone next year.
