Trail Report 03-10-2023

Curt Christensen, President

Even though the temperature is warming a bit, it looks like we’re possibly on track to experience a complete riding season. According to my records, last year the trails closed after the second weekend in March. This year, we have a robust base going into the spring riding season.


Our groomer operators are reporting that almost all of our trails continue to be in Very Good to Excellent Condition.

Please! While you’re enjoying our trails, always Ride Right and Be Safe

Trail Issues:

•    On Corridor 12 from Willow Road east on the trail for 4 miles, be aware of trucks using Flowage Road to access a logging site. Slow down and ride with caution!

•    There’s logging activity on Trail 5 between TIN-513 and TIN-515. There is a very shallow base on this section of trail. You may want to consider an alternate route.

•   Trail 5A is PERMANENTLY closed between TIN-651 (the intersection of Trail 5 & Trail 5A) and TIN-653 (the intersection of Trail 5A & Price County Road). Follow the detour.
