Trail Report: Sayner
Date of Report: 01/15/2016
Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 3 inches (+/-) on the trail
Area Report: –
We have received a couple inches of white gold over the last couple of days. Between that and going out and doing what we can with what we have to work with, things have really improved. Our northern trails are mostly good with some very good sections. We have had more snow further north and the trail beds are in better shape up that way. So less snow is needed to get them in better condition. Our southern trails average out mostly fair with some poor sections and some good sections. Its going to be hit & miss.
Plum Lake and Star Lake have been marked. On those lakes, as with any lake, stay on the marked crossing. DO NOT go off playing in deeper snow off the marked path. There might still be a lake here and there in other areas that are not marked yet. Go around those lakes.
VERY IMPORTANT: We do have logging going on up by Star Lake. Anywhere you encounter a logging operation – DO NOT CONFRONT THE LOGGERS!!! There was already an incident where a couple riders confronted a logger and it had to get smoothed over. The loggers are not out there trying to make life difficult for snowmobilers. They are out there trying to make a living. They have the right to shut snowmobile trails down if they so choose. If snowmobilers bother them too much – thats exactly what they will do – shut the trail down until they are done logging. So PLEASE – be patient, give the loggers room, get the heck out of their way, and give them the utmost courtesy possible
