Hello, I have signed up for the 1st June ride. I was inquiring about anyone having hay that I could purchase when I get up into the area. I would rather not have to carry 11 bales up with me and add the extra weight to my truck for such a long haul. CAROL983 asked me to contact her however I cannot locate her phone number anywhere. I have considered pellet but I rather not change my horses diet especially when he going to be doing extra work then normal. So if anyone has any some hay they can meet up and sell me that would be excellent..thanks

We recently had an encounter with US Forestry while picking up trash around Luzerne. They are blaming us horse riders for the erosion on the big sand hill that is east of the boardwalk, and goes off the trail to the northeast as you are heading out towards the scenic overlook. I did explain to the officer that all summer there are a lot of quads and dirt bikes that come in there and tear it up, and that us horse riders usually don't go up the deep sand. If you happen to ride that two track that goes out the other side of the sand hill, could you please skirt around the sides of that hill and stay on the grassy areas so we don't continue to get blamed? The "trail fairy" has worked hard around here to keep some of these two tracks clean and accessible for circle riders, and after the Forestry Service came in last year and destroyed the beautiful trail that went in off Deeter Road, we don't want to see that happen to these other nice two tracks. They did put signs up a week ago at the access drives off county rd 489 so no more motorized vehicles enter that area, so we shall see if that keeps the quads and such out. We, on the other hand, have been banned from being able to pick up trash where Tim has always gone....the only reason we did not get some major tickets is the back of our RTV was full of winter trash!! Including that Exiss trailer hubcap no one has yet claimed.

Does anyone know of a place where you can horse camp that has cabins for rent? Some friends from out of state want to visit and trail ride, but their trailer doesn't have living quarters.
Thanks!

The trail used to be called the Rails to Trails. It runs from Mackinaw to Alpena. The name was changed and I could be wrong, to North East State Trail.

when MTRA travels that trail they drag it afterwards to remove any droppings. Jan wants to know the officer's name. so do I.

N.E.S.T. is the North Eastern State Trail. It runs from Alpena to just south of Cheboygan where it joins the North Central State Trail that runs from Gaylord to Mackinaw. I spoke with MDNR officer, Paige Perry, this afternoon and she said her personal view is that horse drawn vehicles should be allowed on these trails because they are non-motorized, however, she will check with others and let me know tomorrow or Friday. I will post when I hear from her. Her main concern about horse drawn carts is that the trail will not be accessable once the posts are put back in at intersections. This will be happening soon. The posts are removed for the winter so snowmobiles have access to the trail but are installed in spring, summer and fall to keep motorized vehicles (cars) off the trail.

I live by the NEST (part of which is used on the S-T-S) and was told by the local DNR officer that horses and buggies can not go on the trail. I checked the posted signs and it says NO wheeled motorized vehicles but the officer said that means only people, bikes and horses. I don't know about anyone else's buggy but mine doesn't have a motor on it. Does NEST exclude buggies as the officer said?? He also told me that horses only and with buggies "Do damage to the trails and even the horses alone shouldn't be allowed". Could one of you very knowledgeable people tell me what statute (s) exclude buggies from the NEST? Thanks so much.

The signage specifically is speaking to ONLY wheeled vehicles with motors. The officer is interpreting it in a manner in which he chooses...not necessarily the correct manner. If mountain bikes, baby strollers, wheelchairs or wheeled vehicles of any kind are allowed without motors, then horse drawn carriages are also allowed. It says wheeled motorized vehicles because snowmobiles are allowed in the winter and they have no wheels. They are speaking to dirt bikes, quads, dune buggy type vehicles with the "wheeled motorized" verbage.
