Snow Cover: 6-8 inches in most places. Fair to good Condition, base icy in some areas.
Date of Report: February 7, 2017
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, in scattered areas the trail base is ice. Please exercise caution and operate at reduced speeds.
