STILL GROOMING WITH GOOD RIDING!

Overall trail conditions are good to very good in areas with a soft snow covering and good base. Decent late season riding conditions. Traffic is down with light chop developing between grooming runs. Near the towns we have bare roads and dirty/icy snow on trails running along the roadways. Trail 419 between Munising and Wetmore is un-groomable and getting thin with icy corners and hill tops. Check Fuel and Food stops before heading out. Enjoy the Trails and Ride Safe!
