Trail Report – March 15/18


TRAILS: Trails are still in riding shape.  Some bare patches with dirt spots, exposed rocks and debris are now emerging in open areas.  We have received no new snow since March 4th.  We have had above 0c temperatures the past couple of weeks during the day, but in the evening we have been getting negative temperatures.  Lots of snow still remains in the south and NW trails.   PLEASE NOTE:  THE SUMMIT TRAIL IS CLOSED DUE TO LOGGING.  Please use the Goodwin and Manweiler/Bessie Creek Trail.  

GROOMING: Trails were groomed last week. 

HAZARDS: If you are riding, please use EXTREME caution. Please use extreme caution when crossing water areas including rivers, lakes, ponds and streams.  There is “Active Logging” present in our areas as well, please STOP at all signs, where indicated.  Most of the logging roads are now dirt/mud, therefore take caution when crossing.  

STAGING:  It is recommended to stage from staging areas-gates remain open at Groat Creek Staging and Eagle River Staging Areas.

Ride to our next General Meeting -Wednesday March 14/18


Ride out to our General Meeting tomorrow night – Wednesday March 14/18. We are having our next meeting at the Eagle River Staging Area at 7:30pm.

Meet us at the Boat Launch at 6:30pm and we will ride to the Eagle River Staging Area and have our March meeting in the Gazebo. The trails are in pristine shape and it’s a short ride to the meeting. If you aren’t able to ride, drive out and meet us.

Thank you to Don and Dave for such amazing trails. They are in pristine shape, I hear from a very wise man, they are the best he has ever ridden on (he’s in his 80’s – CL). That is a great compliment to you both. Thank you to our volunteers who trail cleaned and had a big hand in the great shape of our trails this past season. We are hoping to be able to ride into April. Also to mention, a big thank you to all those fellows who have worked tirelessly over the past 40 years to plan, develop and maintain our trails over these years – it takes a lot of man hours, it just doesn’t happen. THANK YOU!!



We need to close part of our trail.

NOTICE: Part of the Summit Trail is closed due to logging. Closure is from the Bessie Creek Trail intersection to the Summit Cabin. Please use the Bessie Creek/Manweiler Trails or the Goodwin Trail to get to the Summit Cabin or south trails. Reminder that the Groat Creek Staging area is also open for the Groat/Goodwin Connectors.

Please beware of logging in the south and north. Have a heads up when crossing roadways.
