After years of wear and tear, more than 15 miles of the Fred Meijer White Pine Trail in Osceola County received a major facelift.

No longer will you have to worry about flooding after a little rain. Team Elmer’s improved the drainage as well as laid down a unique asphalt top built to withstand snowmobile stud degradation. What this means is you’ll have a smoother trail for a longer period of time.

And what does it take to lay down this silky smooth trail? Roughly 35,000 tons of gravel. Hard limestone with low absorption. A higher 7.5 percent liquid asphalt content. Not even your commercial roads have a design so indestructible. This trail is getting hot!
