Water covered trail! Be aware before you go.

May 29, 2011. Yesterday my husband and I set out from the trailhead at Kalamazoo near MSU to find that just 1/2 mi into our ride, the trail was covered with water! Considering all the rain we've had I guess I shouldn't have been too surprised; and there were signs posted. We attempted to pedal through anyway since we have mountain bikes. We made it through the first area okay after removing our shoes and socks (the water came above our axles). It was soon apparent though we were going to have to abort our ride since every low area was covered in equally deep water, and for longer stretches. Exciting but a little slow going. It was very hard to see the trail through the murky water making it a little dangerous. It literally looked as if we were in the middle of a swamp! We had to get off and walk a couple times and that was cold! The mosquitos loved us! So, just be warned before you head out, what you're getting into. Wish someone had posted a comment here for us.
