Welcome to the new 2018/2019 season!

December 13, 2018
We are off to a slow start again unfortunately. Not enough snow to begin grooming. We look forward to seeing more snow later in the month, though none yet in the forecast. THINK SNOW!


Due to the retirement of our current Trail Coordinator due to illness we are actively recruiting suitable volunteer candidates to fill this position.   Training help for this position will be provided. 

Candidates will need to be onboard asap

NO ONE TELLS MOTHER NATURE WHAT TO DO!

WE WANT TO THANK ALL OF THE RIDERS THAT CAME OUT TO RIDE OUR TRAILS LAST 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 Recently some landowners in other parts of the state have withdrawn their permission to use their property for trails due to riders leaving the trails.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!
