The Manistee Area Trails are bulletproof going into the weekend. The Beginner Loops was described as super fast and just a tiny bit icy. The Big M Outer Loop is also fast with slightly icier conditions. The Manistee Non-motorized trail park is also solid with maybe a little slip here and there. There is more grip in areas where there was no tire tread prior to Tuesday’s warm up. Parts of the trail with tracks on them are a bit on the slippery side.
Overall, studded tires will be nice this weekend, but you don’t need them to enjoy the trails.
