*Please note – The Saunders Grade Trail will be closed for the entire 2018/2019 winter season due to significant damage caused by June 2018 flooding.*
It is critical that we respect the landowners who allow us to utilize their property, so please verify that the trail you intend to use is open at this time.
It’s snowing! The groomers are out but the club is experiencing some equipment issues so the grooming is going slowly. Trails are in very good condition as the clubs are trying to keep up with all of the snow we’ve received this week.
All trails are open and will be groomed before Friday as it will take time due to equipment issues and a large amount of snow that has fallen. Watch for logging operations on Trail 41N and Trail 541.
*Please note – The CN Railroad is warning snowmobilers to stay off railroad property in Solon Springs. There is a new trail to Solon Springs (Trail 27B). Where the trail meets Business Highway 53, snowmobilers must use the road shoulders and not the railroad property to access the railroad crossing on Main Street. Snowmobilers have and will continue to be ticketed for operating on the railroad’s property.*
Please watch for low hanging brush and limbs.
All trails are open and will have at been groomed at least once by 2/10/2019. Conditions are very good to excellent.
All trails are open except for Saunders Grade, which is closed for the season. All trails will be groomed once the snow stops falling.
