Small disclaimer – I have not been on all our trails, so there will be some variation, but I think the majority of our trails are looking good now. We got the high side of what was forecast for snow – maybe a little more! Got out at 4am to groom and groomed a number of our trails in the National forest (see pics). Having ridden those trails yesterday and groomed this morning, they are all in very good shape now. Enjoy the riding while you can, it is supposed to warm up this week 🙁

With the snow we’ve had in the past week or so, trails are looking much better now. We’ve been out and have groomed the majority of our trails at least once. We still need to do more and things aren’t perfect, but they might be the best we’ve seen this year (either that or I’ve got a short memory!).
So enjoy riding and as always, please use caution. Forecast this weekend looks questionable. If we do get any rain, please refrain from riding during any rain and wait until things get cold before riding following it. This will help keep the trails in the best shape possible! Happy Riding!
We’ve had some snow the past few days and more expected Wednesday. Groomer will be out this week. Expect variable conditions, but for things to improve as we groom. As always, ride with caution.
Groomer was also out to RD59 last night. Similar conditions.
The storm we had wasn’t good for the trails at all. On the plus side we didn’t get much ice at all. We also didn’t get much of any snow at the end of the storm. Trails are mostly hard packed, with variable coverage – mostly decent except for some water bars and any other spots where water was an issue due to the rain and melting snow. We need more snow to get things back to where they were! If you ride, please ride with caution.
A section of trail on 112 North heading towards Rochester/Bethel was washed out with the river. You should be able to get by staying close to the edge of the road, but its recommended to go around. Bethel grooms this section and more snow will be needed before they will be able to groom and get it back to normal. Large chunks of ice and water/ice cover the trail.
More snow fell today (about 6-8″). Groomer was out last Friday and Saturday and most of our trails we’re groomed. With the new snow and riding since then, we’ll get back out there as soon as we can. Things are looking pretty good for this time of year, but as always, ride with caution. We are still early in the season and with the wind today, I expect trees could also be down. Hope to see you out there!
Warm weather and rain have put an end to the season. It wasn’t the greatest season we’ve had, but it was a good season in comparison to last year. Let’s hope next year is even better!
We can always use help in taking down trail markers so if you are able to help, please reach out to us. email@example.com.
We expect to get enough snow to re-open our trails for riding. HOWEVER, keep in mind that no one has been on the trails in the past couple of weeks and we’ve had a lot of wind. We expect trees to be down and the trails to need clearing. If you are thinking of riding after the storm, please consider doing what you can to help clean up. This will help us get grooming sooner. We’re not going to send the groomer out until we know that the trails are clear. And ride safe, we’re going to be looking at early season conditions again with the majority of areas being back down to bare ground.
