STILL GROOMING WITH GREAT TRAILS!

Overall trail conditions are good to very good in areas with a soft snow covering and good base. Decent late season riding conditions and not much change. Traffic is down. Near the towns we have bare roads and dirty/icy snow on trails running along the roadways though the Wetmore Spur along M-28 is very good. Trail 419 between Munising and Wetmore is un-groomable and getting thin with icy corners and hill tops. Measurable snow in the forecast after a shot of freezing rain. Check Fuel and Food stops before heading out. Enjoy the Trails and Ride Safe!

Forecast: Rain/Snow Showers, High 38ºF, Winds SE 5 to 10 mph, 1 to 2 inches of snow overnight
