Milford Challenge - Thanks!

Thanks to everyone who came out and supported us at the Milford Challenge last weekend! The weather forecast started out ominous, but everything cleared up and the day turned out to be great.

Thanks to our trail coordinators who put in special effort over the past couple weeks to make sure all our trails were clear and ready, and DL Graphics for the flyers and printing. And a special thanks to Bill Hermann for making this event happen each year!

See you next year!

Milford Challenge - June 1st!

 

 

The Milford Trail Challenge is an annual celebration of mountain biking in and around the Village of Milford.  Bikers pick their own course and trails: Milford and/or Highland and/or Proud Lake and/or Hickory Glen and/or Island Lake and/or Kensington... all easily reachable from Milford with a minimum of road riding. You can tailor this anywhere from a fun trail ride with friends to an all-day 100 miler epic! Enjoy $2.00 beers and musical entertainment at the Milford House between trails, camping 3 miles away at Proud Lake, and bask in the satisfaction knowing that you're supporting your local trails!

Entry Fee: $15 (Proceeds benefit the the Motor City Mountain Biking Association)

Registration: 8 am - noon

Lunch provided - see you there!

 

 

Lakeshore Trail Day

We are having a trail work day at the Farm this Saturday at 9:00 AM. This is mostly going to be a cleanup type of trail day where we do some trimming, rut repair, deberming and trash cleanup. We are also going to get rid of the old bridge coming back from Swamp Loop.

Lunch provided. Loppers, rakes, shovels helpful if you have 'em.

Hope to see you there!

New bridge at Highland

The DNR and MCMBA joined forces this last weekend on a project to replace an old bridge on the Highland Recreation Area trail. Bridge work this time of year is a cold, wet, messy business...

but the end reward is worth it! The new completed bridge is high and dry and looks great!

Thanks team!
