Update from Tuesday 1/28/2020
Trail Update, the little rain we got and the warm weather and lack of snow is not helping. The gates will remain open however grooming has stopped as the base is too low and temps to high. Most of the system has held pretty good. Freedom side will be better and Madison side likely on worse shape. If you venture out ride with caution watch for open areas and water bars. If you see dirt stay off the trail and respect our landowners. Logging has started at Burnham Road toward Chimney. They are working with us to keep the trail open however we will need more snow to ride that trail as where they are working is now all dirt.
Since this info we have had warm weather and some trails are showing signs of dirt so please stay off if there is no snow.
We have snow coming so pray we get a lot and help the system!
Please respect our Landowners and ride responsibly!
