GREAT TRAILS – WARNING TRAIL 418 CLOSED!
  Overall trail conditions groomed out very good to Tuesday night. Monday we saw a steady rain fall which made the grooming results a little less than ideal but still very good. We do have one area of Trail 418 that is flooded with flowing water, deep slush and un-groomable at this time. This is just East of AuTrain, heading east from Scott Falls for about two miles. Trail 418 is officially closed per the DNR from the bridge in AuTrain heading east to Trail 7.
DETOUR: Detour from East is taking Trail 7 South to Trail 8 West to Trail 417. West Detour is reverse taking 417 from the Brownstone Intersection.

Past 24 hour Grooming operations:
Trails 8 East to 7 miles north of Shingleton and 8 West, 7 North and South to Buckhorn Road, Trail 419 East and West, Trail 417, Trail 418 from 417 East to AuTrain, Trail 422 and Wetmore Spur.

WARNING - TRAIL 418 EAST OF AU TRAIN IS CLOSED

- Monday's rain has water crossing and running down Trail 418 approximately 2 miles East of Au Train. This has created slushy and deep water areas for a long section of the trail along with a hole across the trail. Reports have sleds getting stuck and riders that are making it through are getting wet. Again - avoid using Trail 418 East of Au Train until further notice. DETOUR: From East is taking Trail 7 South to Trail 8 West to Trail 417. West Detour is reverse taking 417 from the Brownstone Intersection.
