3/17 Last report of the season. All trails are closed as we have zero snow. Time to get the orv out and start again.
Special Note: The above signs have been placed a various location on trails. Beginning Monday Feb. 8th the city trail between trails 4 and 992 will be closed. A major bridge is being replaced so there will be no access except by using trail 464. Both trails are open for services in alpena but not for going between.
A special note that logging has begun on trail 461 between Werth and spruce Roads. So once we get snow be very careful in this trail section.
If you ride a helping hand would be appreciated like throwing branches off trail, move a down tree, etc. We are all volunteers so it is important we all help if you want trails to ride.
We have had a lot of logging along our trails this summer and fall but not sure about this winter. We have several areas marked for cutting and will update as winter moves ahead. Note that roads are in poor condition.
Below is our report by trails we cover:
Trail 992 to Posen: Poor
Trail 4 from Herron Road to Alpena: Poor
Trail 4 from Herron Rd. to Hillman: poor
Trail 464 between trails 4 & 992 poor
Devils Lake: poor
Indian Reserve Trail: poor
Norway Ridge Trail: Poor
Our club is a 100% volunteer club including all our groomer operators. They spend their time and money keeping our trails in excellent condition for sledders to enjoy, so if you see us on the trail a thank you would be appreciated.
Please ride safe and always stay on the trail!!!!
