Trail report 5Mar2019:
This last weekend saw a LOT of sled traffic, 413 took a major beating from the last storm and the rest of the system is holding up:
41 North and South good to real good, there is a timber sale taking out the trail south of the M94 crossing by JackPine TH.
413 is clear and well groomed after a rough weekend.
7 North and South: HIGH traffic but holding to gather well. Corners are mushy after the first 30 or so sleds through but trails are hard and flat.
2 West and East to Blaney and Bear Creek Swamp: way more traffic than normal. Started new grooming schedule and seeing the benefits already. Huge drifting in the clear cuts and resulting powder cause increased moguls, but we’re knocking them down.
The swamp has some minor open spots that are opening up even with filling and packing; they’re fairly obvious so slow roll and you’ll be good. Blaney is signed on the North side of US2 crossing to the BP STATION.
421 into Gulliver is good with a timber sale taking out the Cooper Rd from just South of the Cooper swamp gate to the turn off of Cooper Rd, (1-2miles)
With warm ups coming soon, PLEASE remember throttle discipline and Safe riding skills. SLOW DOWN, STAY ON THE TRAIL, STAY RIGHT AND LOOK BOTH WAYS AT STOP SIGNS.
