Groomer Report

Trail 3 High Bridge in Manistee, Benzie and Leelanau county not good, Feb 17th trails were run pretty hard last weekend lots of dirt spots, High bridge to Kaleva ice in corners and snow in the woods, 33 Kaleva express is fair, where the dirt roads are its dirt. Bear Lake spur good snow, North of Kaleva, Benzie County fair snow in the woods and road parts of trail are dirt, 39 and Landis loop are fair with snow in the woods. 47 Thompsonville to Mesick the grade is rocky and dirt. Its not cool to rooster the roads, you could cause an accident and it makes extra work for the groomer drivers! Please use caution on the trails.

Here is our planned groomer schedule for this year. Remember this is what we plan to do, it does not account for extreme weather or break downs, which can cause changes in the schedule. Also remember that high traffic causes bumps in the trails. Riding sensibly helps keep the corners and intersections smooth.
Kaleva to Highbridge – Tues, Thurs, Fri, Sat, Sun
Kaleva to Bear Lake/Thompsonville – Mon, Wed, Fri, Sat, Sun
Turtle Creek and North – Mon, Wed, Fri, Sat, Sun
Remember to give the groomers room!! They are working to keep the trails in good condition for you. Give them a thumbs up!!


Look below the map for our next 5 day forecast!

Use Caution!! Please be observant as our fellow rides and the great guys “our volunteers” on those big green machines maybe just around the corner or just up over the hill. Show them your appreciation with thumbs up and a courtesy pass of right a way. Our guys give up many hours of their own riding time and their sleep to do a great job at trying to keep others happy on our trails. And just a few selfish people can take away the groomers pride of all they have accomplished and not to mention the big cost to our club. Please show some respect for the guys grooming during the early morning or late night hours.
