Benzie Manistee Snowbirds want to welcome you!!
Trails # 3,33,37,39,386,395

Trails are open with marginal snowfall, December 1st heavy snow has tress and limbs down, Dec4th Trails have been scouted and we have lots of limbs and trees down and overhangs snow is setteling, also water hazards! lots of wet areas we will be out clearing trails so use caution. GO SLOW IF YOU RIDE, our groomers will not be out until we get more snow this is needed to provide a good pack for a base. Watch for dirt and water holes! Please us Caution if you are out. We will up date soon!
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.
