  Double tracked classic trails are in good shape and holding up well. A little debris and thin spots but with the good coverage hard to complain.

  Everything is pretty firm with some ice underneath. Small amount of leaves and small twigs on the trail that will slow you down unexpectedly. All sections had good tracks and some bare spots in the typical open areas. Overall the trails are in much better conditions than I thought they would be.

  Green trail mostly in great condition. There are a couple of uphill stretches where the right hand track is packed down, but otherwise most of the track is great. Couple of chunky ice patches around the southeast corner but still some snow coverage. Light debris in various places but not a problem. Unfortunately the last stretch of trail along the western side back to the Lower Afton Road parking lot is a mess. It looks like someone drove in a ways with a truck, turned around and drove out, totally obliterating the tracks and generally tearing up the trail. You just have to pick your way through that area. Still, conditions otherwise made the outing well worth while. Great skiing!

  Great ski in Battle Creek. Trails were smooth, felt like silk. Had a blast! Tracks were in great shape.

  These classic trails were in great shape, especially those off the main path. It was one of those perfect days were I felt sorry for people who don't Nordic ski!
