Trail update

Depending on where you are in the county, we received 6″-9″ of snow over the Thanksgiving weekend.

However, the Trails remain closed for now.  After seeing several areas on the Central lakes trail this morning, we will keep it closed for now.  While some of it may be “rideable”, there is not adequate snow cover in many areas.

The dirt trails will also remain closed for now.  We will work hard this week to pack sloughs so the ice can improve.  We also have some standing corn fields in which we’ll need to route around prior to opening trails.

If you are a Landowner with trails running through your pasture and you would like to help us out,  open your gates for us.  Thanks everyone!  We’ll keep you updated.



Update on trails

We have spent last week and this week hanging signs, finishing posting, prepping groomers, and finishing trail reroutes. We will finish the signs Friday and early next week.  There are still several areas to trim as we were unable to get to the low areas this year.  We have very little ice to pack sloughs yet, but we will be starting that next week as well.  Trails will remain closed for now regardless of the weekend snow totals. We’ll keep busy and attempt to get trails open as soon as we can. Thanks to everyone who makes our trail system possible!

The Staff at Lake Carlos State Park has asked that snowmobilers please be respectful by staying on designated snowmobile trails and off ski trails!
