Area Report: Douglas County Winter Trails Update 1/13/2015
As is typical for this time of year, certain trail segments can be opened and others are not
ready yet due to wetland crossings and/or have restrictions due to private land easements.
It is critical that we respect the landowners who allow us to use their property… please
review the information below carefully before trail riding and confirm that you are using
open trails. Please note that on certain trails only segments of that trail may be open at
this time. We anticipate frequent updates as the clubs report in with trails they have
checked. In all areas where the winter recreational trails are closed the clubs are actively
working on the getting the trails open.
