NICE RIDING CONDITIONS
Overall trail conditions are very good with exception of parts of Trail 419. Trails are grooming nice but will not set a hard ribbon with rough conditions returning quicker than usual. We are down a machine with the Deere trying to cover 101 miles with Trenary Northern Trails helping us on the West end. Part of Trail 419 is inaccessible by our running groomer and will not be groomed until the Bully is operational. Our typical grooming schedule is slightly altered but working together with TNT we are able to keep on track – almost. We would also like to give appreciation for Tanglewood Sponsoring the moving of the bully into our groomer building. We will continue to groom and do our best with what we have. Keep the cold weather snow dancing going, Enjoy the Trails and Ride Safe!

Past 24 hour Grooming Operations: (currently operating with only 1 machine)
Trail 7 from Christmas to CR440, Trail 8 from 7 miles North of Shingleton west to Trail 417, Trail 418, Trail 419 from Trail 8 to Wetmore and from Christmas to the West Bay Spur and Holiday Inn.

Forecast: Partly Sunny, High 20ºF, Winds S 5 to 10 mph
Currently: Cloudy, 8ºF, Winds S 7

ROUGH TRAIL - suggested route

- Trail 419 from Wetmore west to the West Bay Spur Intersection cannot be groomed until we have the Bully running. Conditions are poor. If staying in Munising we suggest taking Trail 419 toward Wetmore for a much shorter route to access the trails.
