We want to thank all of the riders and clubs that came out to our Open House ton the 10th. We had a great turn out!  Thank you also for showing your appreciation for our volunteer groomers.  We hope everyone had a great time. We did! 

Wednesday March 14, 2018

We have received a couple of inches here and there over the past couple of weeks but nothing that we can really groom. The base is just about gone and the trails are icy.

Downgrading the trails back to poor. Pray for snow! It ain't over till it's over.

PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU USE THE STAGING AREA AT THE BARN ON OLD HOUSE PLEASE ONLY USE THE CENTER ENTRANCE. THE SIDE ENTRANCES ARE USED BY THE GROOMING EQUIPMENT ONLY. SOMEONE GOT STUCK.

Have fun and be safe out there!!


NO ONE TELLS MOTHER NATURE WHAT TO DO!


 Our groomers are now equipped with Collett Groomer Warning Beacons. 

Collett Communicator's of Oakbank, MB Canada Groomer Warning Beacons or GWB's are devices that are installed on trail groomers and transmit a 900MHz radio signal " dee-da " .... "dee-da " that can be received on channel #1 of all Collett ' 900 ' series Communicators. This signal warns snowmobilers that a groomer is near and they should slow down and be prepared to stop.

WE WANT TO THANK ALL OF THE RIDERS THAT CAME OUT TO RIDE OUR TRAILS THIS SEASON.  WE APPRECIATE YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS THAT MAKE OUR TRAILS MAINTENANCE POSSIBLE AND SUPPORTS OUR LOCAL BUSINESSES. 

THE TRAILS OPEN ON DECEMBER 1ST. 4" BASE REQUIRED.

We would like to remind riders to stay on the trails. We do have some trails that go through private properties. Recently some landowners in other parts of the state have withdrawn their permission to use their property for trails due to riders leaving the trails.  One example is the trail between East Jordan and Charlevoix. We don't want that to happen here. 

We have three staging locations that are plowed regularly based on snowfall.  One site is located on M-55 just East of Cooley Bridge at Low Bridge road (off trail #6) that will handle 8-10 trailers.

Another is at our grooming barn located at 18151 Old House Rd. (Trail 3/6) just East of Tippy Dam Rd. that holds at least 6 rigs. PLEASE ONLY USE THE CENTER DRIVEWAY.
  
The third is off Stronach Rd. on Old Steinberg Rd. (Trail #6) and has room for at least 10 rigs.



LOW BRIDGE IS OFTEN UNDER WATER BUT BE AWARE THAT THERE IS CONCRETE UNDER THE WATER. PLEASE BE AWARE OF THIS.

Please note: A new trail map has been published. Pick up your copy at many of our supporting businesses in the area. Those business locations are shown on the back of the trail map. 



THINK SNOW!!!!!

Our goal is to give an honest report without embellishing it.

  THANKS FOR RIDING THE TRAILS AND CONTRIBUTING TO THEIR MAINTENANCE!
