Season is open, Groomers on the trail. Last couple days saw good snow in Manistee County area 8-12 inches, trails have some base and water holes are freezing!, Benzie and Leelanau Counties have a little more snow with better riding. Grooming schedule will be picking up. Trails are cleaned up and are rideable. GO SLOW IF YOU RIDE, RIDE RIGHT! Please use Caution when you are out riding. CLUBHOUSE OPEN ON SATURDAYS 10am till 4pm Free coffee and snacks stop in.
THANK YOU !! Benzie Manistee Snowbirds

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 trail.
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.

Remember the clubhouse is open Saturday’s Hope you can join us for our Open House every Saturday in January, February and March 10am – 3pm. at our clubhouse, just off trail 3 in Kaleva, follow the signs or located on 14121 Industrial Drive.
