Trail is in outstanding shape!  Rode 15miles on Saturday and 18miles on Sunday!  I just couldn't believe how good of shape the trail was in!  Only a couple of muddy spots other than that it was outstanding!

Great TT. Had a little over 50 people which was a little short of what we had done all year. The Mayor came out and sent off the first rider, what more could you ask for. Trails in great shape, go for a ride.

Rode all three trail loops this weekend and found the trail to be in good shape, well the part I could see under all of the fallen leaves.  This was a twisty adventere in riding and a lot of fun.  The Bridge over the Roller Coaster section was a blast to ride.  Actually so was the roller coaster part that went underneath the bridge as well.  A lot of good drops on the Advanced secton as well.  I did find it a little confusing in a couple of spots but this is a trail I'll definitely return to.

I was in Elkhart last weekend and rode TK lawless in MI (about an hour from Rum Village) conditions were great!  I don't know if they have had any rain this week but I imagine Rum Village would be similar.

getsometrail, you would be surprised how much difference an hour's drive can make regarding the weather...being from SB and traveling to michigan a lot, i know first hand that for some reason the rain stops once you cross that state line  ;D

My wife and I are moving up to the South Bend/Goshen area in a few months (we live in Indy now) and I desperately need to find some good trails! Could anyone direct me to the local spots to get me by until I'm familiar with the area? Not that it really matters, but I ride fast and furious most of the time and also do BMX dirt jumping a lot. Thanks in advance!

Check out Northern Indiana Mountain Bike Association on Facebook, they have a discussion tab for trail conditions.  Let me think, there is Winona, Imagination Glen, TK Lawless (in MI), Rum Village, Potato Creek, Goshen, and Bendix Woods.  There is also Fort Custer in MI.  I haven't ridden all of these but maybe someday.
