NEW SNOW WITH NEAR PERFECT TRAILS!

Overall trail conditions are good to very good with an average of 4 plus inches of fresh snow, heavier in areas. Trails are grooming out the best they have all season. We still have a very good base overall with great late season riding conditions. Near the towns we have some thin snow on trails running along the roadways though the Wetmore Spur along M-28 is very good. Most of Trail 419 between Munising and Wetmore is un-groomable with icy corners and hill tops. Check Fuel and Food stops before heading out. Enjoy the Trails and Ride Safe!
