Trail Conditions: Poor
Snow Cover: Need more on the trail
Date of Report: March 6, 2018
Well these are the reports I just don’t like to give. Warm & sun just devastated our trails last week. I was waiting to update this report hoping we would get a dumping and I would have a positive report. However, this last winter storm “Quinn” just was not all that. 1 to 2 inches was about it. Road routes and exposed & heavily traveled sections had a lot of bare spots before Quinn so what we got is all there is in those areas. Its looking like whatever riding there is left – this week could be about it. As usually happens toward the end of the season, we still have some good riding out there but you have to go over some junk to get to it. There is a chance for some snow Saturday, but the high is supposed to be 35. Then Sunday 39 and Monday 40. I sure wish I had better news. If you do ride, please be prepared for ice. Even with the snowfall we got today, it is still solid ice underneath in most areas.
News and Reports:
There are logging operations in the following locations: Trail 9 between Hwy 70 (TIN 364) and Ross Lake Rd (TIN 225). There is also logging in the Jean Lake Rd area of Trail 7 North, between TINS 227 & 800. The logging, in this area, should be in the woods away from the trail.
(TIN = Trail Intersection Numbers)
Please watch out for logging areas. Slow down and stay out of the way of the loggers. DO NOT hassle the loggers. They have the right to close down sections of any trail they are logging near or using. If they get hassled too much, that is exactly what they will do – shut that trail down. The logging operations can run at anytime of the day or night. Loggers use some of the trails to drive in and out. So please be watchful in logging areas for trucks on the trail. Logging operations in any of these areas can start and/or stop without warning. So even if you ride in an area and there was nothing going on one day – it can start back up the next day.
