LITTLE SNOW LEFT!
The snow is going fast with a majority of the trails now trying to dry out and great early season riding out there right now. As far as current conditions the trails, seasonal National Forest and County roads are about 30% snow covered with standing water, flowing water and ice in areas. Gates are closed just north of Shingleton so ORV’s must take H-15 North of M-28 for .75 miles and head East to access Trail 8 North. Route “C” from Shingleton to Chocolay Twp. is again 30% snow covered with flowing water and ruts closer to Shingleton. Stay Alert as trails are crowned and slippery in some of the snowy areas to the West. Stay tuned for updates as equipment for grading operations is being prepared. Ride Safe and Enjoy the outdoors!

Grading Operations: None – Machines currently in preparation
