Has anyone had any experience with how the loggers have left a pathway after they have harvested the timber? The DNR have told us that the loggers will clean and leave the trail through our state forest multi ( horse bike hike) use pathway like they found it. The winter x-country skiing will be lost for at least the first winter for sure but any comments ( not spiteful) would be appreciated.

More than once over the years we have had to ride completely around the perimeter of a clear-cut area to pick up the trail again (the blue trail). When they clear-cut I don't see how it is possible to leave the trail as they found it.

Do you want to make scratching posts for your horses? I was given a complete set of spent brushes from a city street sweeper; but have decided I don't have the where-with-all to make the scratchers. These are long brushes with 8" long plastic bristles. You can hack-saw them to a desired length and then attach them to posts or ? ...

We just got word that Freeland township is repairing the parking lot at the Freeland Memorial Park Building and we are going to have to park in the lot just south of the building (on the other side of the little creek that goes through the park). We will have to walk over the little bridge to get over to the Memorial Building. They are supposed to have someone there directing traffic over to the other parking lot. The entrance to the south parking lot is just the other side of the little house that you normally turn in next to. There is a sign that says “Kindercare” where you need to turn.

Sorry about this late notice but we just found out about this inconvenience. Please pass this on to others who may not be on my distribution list. I am switching to a new computer and I don’t have all my e-mail addresses transferred yet. Hope to see lots of you there tonight!

Hi,
I am planning on riding the shore-to-shore next September. I will only be able to do one way of the double cross. Can anyone give me pros and cons of riding north to south or east to west? Are the trails comparable, etc?
Thank you,
Ellen

West to East the sun is in your eyes every morning. North/South some of the rides have more miles than some of the East/West. There are more bugs (nats)on the East side. The West side the lake breezes seem to keep them off. OTOH it's all good fun and YMMV. This is only my experience.

North to south has a whole lot more road riding than the west to east trail.

I am looking for a horse to buy. Gelding and under 10 yrs. preferred. Nothing fancy needed, just a solid trail horse for camping, etc. I do like a confident type that doesn't mind going off on it's own. Also must have some go, as my TWH mare moves out and covers a lot of ground. I am not a horse trader, looking for a horse to keep forever. He will have a good home, plenty of pasture, and indoor stall when then weather turns bad.

Interested in riding the Pine Marten Trail in the UP next year. Also looking to stay at Kenbuck's in Wetmore. What is the riding like at Pine Marten and has anymore stayed at Kenbuck with their horses? Looks like a nice place.

Pine Martin is gorgeous! Miles and miles of trails, lots of trees and some very scenic little lakes. It is pretty secluded; I always look over my shoulder for bears or cougars! Definitely worth the trip to the UP smile I've never stayed at Kenbuck, but I've vacationed in the area for my entire 30+ years of life. We have a family cabin about 6 miles from Kenbuck. The area is great, beautiful woods everywhere - it is pretty much in the middle of nowhere! There are a few little stores somewhat nearby for snacks and necessities. I'd highly suggest the Midway General Store for ice cream and pasties!

I live about 3 hours from the Pine Marten and it's an absolutely gorgeous trail system! I've attached the link for more info. I have never stayed at Kenbuck's Resort though. There is a trailhead that is free of charge with a water pump and a vault toilet. You high-line your horses in the trees. The trail-head camping are is quite large but can fill up fast. Have a great time!

Where to ride during hunting season in Michigan other than Elba?

During gun season, there is no place to ride safe Nov 1st to 15th Other than that everywhere you normally ride. Oct 1st to Nov 15 there is some hunting season open. I wear bright colors orange saddle blanket on my horse and Bear bells on my horse from Jay's sporting goods. Jerry Gaylord.

MSU has an equestrian team. Those horses must live somewhere. I bet you could contact someone from there and they could refer you. Google MSU equestrian team.

Not sure but think the horse trails at Fort Custer in Battle Creek are no shooting area. Check their website under DNR. Get a few big bangs now and then when the military is practicing, but at least they aren't shooting at the trails.

Cummings Center allows hunting one day a week. It is by lottery and I believe there are six areas with one hunter per area. The rest of the time hunting is banned....

I have an MSU vet student leasing my mare and she's looking for a place near the college to keep her. A very mature and responsible young woman. Doesn't have to be a large or fancy facility, just one that's clean, safe and looked after. Appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!
