fall trail prep

Its was a very wet fall!  We mowed what we could with our tractor/mower, but skipped more this year than any other in several years.  We are close to finished with our posting and trimming.  After deer hunting, we will hang sponsor signage and update directional signage. After signing, we will pack our cattail and ice areas- which should be crossable by then with the temps this November!  We’re hoping snow will soon follow, and we can open trails in Dec. for a great riding season. We again have several reroutes for you to enjoy.  Visit our face book page for more photos/info.

Trails Closed

The DATA Trails are closed for the season.  Thanks to everyone involved who makes our trail system possible.  Please contact us if you have questions or concerns about the trails.  We are constantly working to improve the riding/safety/scenery of our trail system.

trail update

We did groom this morning-  the Central lakes (west and back), inside loop of Inspiration, Big Ole, some of Carlos Park, and Arrowwood, Viking back to the shop.  We’ll see what the warm temps and rain do the next few days.  I know there is still a lot of snow as of today.

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