Trail Conditions: Early Season
Snow Cover: 12-14"
Date of Report: December 26, 2022
Trails are in excellent shape. Not all the lakes are marked yet, so remember, if it isn’t marked, it isn’t safe to cross yet. Pioneer Lake near Maple View has been marked.
Trails are smooth, corners are icy as usual with early season riding. You may encounter a tree down on a trail, so ride right, ride safe.
