Title: Soo Strong Trail - Sault Ste. Marie
Post by: oldguybiker on August 20, 2019, 05:35:17 pm
Tried the Soo Strong Rail Trail west out of Sault Ste. Marie on my gravel bike with 700x40 tires and spent a lot of time bike hiking due to frequent, pernicious deep sand.  It may be good in the winter snow with a fat tire rig, but it wasn't much fun in the summer. Diverted to back roads and Hwy 28 which turned out to have nice wide shoulders most of the way to Marquette.

Sand on roads and trails is an issue that I have encountered also.   I understand the frustration of traveling on a gravel road then suddenly turns to sand.  Is there an app for sand notifications? ;)
