Waterloo SRA - Trail, Chelsea, Michigan

Waterloo SRA - Trail, Chelsea, Michigan

DESCRIPTION

Runs through deep woods and around a number of small ponds and marsh areas. The hills here are on par with Poto, and because of the rough trail conditions they may be more imposing. Maute Road divides the course into two halves, with the eastern having hills and rocks, and the western portion having a lot of sand.

This trail is a potential gem but which is currently very rough, both literally and figuratively. This is a shared trail with horses, and their presence is visible from the hoofprints and felt through the extremely rough condition of the trail surface. There are a couple of entry points, but the one off Glenn Road opens with mile of loose sand. Beyond this, once on the trail it improves to be somewhat more rideable. Rocks are strewn throughout, and intense at a number of locations. The side brush is very close, and in spots has grown into the pathway.

That said, with a lot more riders this trail could be one of southern Michigans better runs. MMBA should organize a brush-clearing, tread-packing, signing event here, because it sure could use the work. If you like to ride with speed or on smooth singletrack, dont bother for you will get frustrated. Those who like a rough, medium-distance, anaerobic workout will enjoy the course.

In its current condition, Waterloo rates a 2. But with a lot of work, it could become a 4. MTBers, lets get to it!
