Thirty-five years ago I first skied the newly created Cadillac Pathway, an 11 ½ mile trail system, that was developed by the DNR under the direction of Del Wieland. This was a vast improvement over the bushwhack make-your-own path ski trips we’d been doing. Not only did we now have a defined path marked with […]

Through the profits from the Bear Claw Epic Mountain Bike Race and consultation with the DNR we experimented with buying 18 yards of 22A road gravel. This road gravel consists of clay, sand […]
In 2015 several members of the Cadillac Cycling Club did a few worker bees to remove rubber mats that were laid down on the trail system approximately 15 years ago. The thought process 15 years ago was to lay these mats to try and sustain the hill side from erosion. After several […]
