Sorry I haven't been on here in a while. We closed the hotel on Sunday the 15th and I have been very busy getting the hotel ready for the carpet installers! Woohoo!!
Conditions have not changed much except for getting in and out of towns for food, drinks, and fuel will cause you to deal with pavement and dirt. The trail report is as follows:
Trail 452, Whitefish Point loop is in good shape.
Trail 45 to the falls is in good shape with a few puddles but nothing you can't go around.
Trail 8 to Pine Stump is in good shape.
Trail 8, south, is in good shape but the gate is closed through the swamp due to thin base and mud showing through. Riding the unplowed portion of M123 is your only access into town and that may be kind of rough too.
Check out the forecast for the weekend, looks colder and a chance of snow on Saturday.
I'd like to extend a HUGE thank you for all of our new guests who stayed with us for the first time and said "we will be back!" That right there tells me we are accomplishing what we strive for in that every guest feel warm and welcome and we have provided you with everything you need to make your stay a memorable one. For our returning friends, year after year, THANK YOU THANK YOU! Your continued loyalty to us, some of you since we opened the doors in 2000, warms my heart, especially when you walk in the door and say, "we're home!" I can't think of a better compliment than that! We love you all!
This will be my last report for the season. I thank you all for your encouraging words and compliments that I receive for my trail report. I love when you stop by, even if you are not staying with us, just to meet me and thank me for doing the reports on fishweb. I really appreciate it! Take care, have a wonderful year, and we'll see you all in the 2015/2016 season!
