Trail Report #7 Winter 2016-2017

Our trails survived the reciprocal weekend despite some very heavy traffic. To all those who enjoyed the weekend we hope your experience was worth the wait. All of our trails have been groomed and we continue to maintain our regular grooming schedule. This past week the temperatures have remained below freezing and we have had some snow squalls move through the area on several different days. Unfortunately snow squalls not consistent across our entire grooming area and therefore all trails do not receive the benefit of new snow. For the most part with regular grooming and some new snow there is sufficient loose snow to provide lubrication and cooling. As always snowmobilers should drive with caution and expect the unexpected.

The Equine parking area off Maidstone Lake Road remains filled with logs and logging equipment. We have not been able to maintain the area nor groom the trail from the parking to Paul Stream Rd. However, the gate at Brown’s Mill is open and a limited amount of parking is available at that location. Paul Stream Rd is a snowmobile ONLY trail. Other parking areas at Dennis Pond access and Stone Dam are open and maintained regularly but only when snowmobile trailers and trucks are not present. Use of these areas is at one’s own risk. Please be courteous and park so others can use the areas as well. As a reminder Fishing Accesses are only for those enjoying the sport of fishing. Snowmobilers who are trail riding and not actually ice fishing risk having their equipment towed from these areas.
