It’s that time of year for the ORV transition and of course we get a few more inches of snow. Where was this a month ago? While we wait for the snow to melt we will be getting our club owned John Deere 7130 ready for grading operations. As far as current conditions the trails, seasonal National Forest and County roads are still 60% snow covered with standing water and ice in areas. Gates are closed just north of Shingleton so ORV’s must take H-15 North of M-28 for .75 miles and head East to access Trail 8 North. Route “C” from Shingleton to Chocolay Twp. is again 60% snow covered with standing water and snowy/icy ruts closer to Shingleton. Stay Alert as trails are crowned and slippery in some of the snowy areas. We have also been having high winds lately so watch for fallen trees. Ride Safe and Enjoy the outdoors!

Grading Operations: None – Machines currently in preparation
