Well, Mother Nature has thrown us yet another curve ball. Yesterday the temperatures got up into the mid forties with sun all day. When I got up this morning at 6 am the dripping from the eaves sounded like heavy rain. The trails are definitely taking a beating. No real snow in the forecast and more warm weather over the next 10 days unfortunately.
Downgrading the trails back to poor. Pray for snow!
PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU USE THE STAGING AREA AT THE BARN ON OLD HOUSE PLEASE ONLY USE THE CENTER ENTRANCE. THE SIDE ENTRANCES ARE USED BY THE GROOMING EQUIPMENT ONLY. SOMEONE GOT STUCK.
Have fun and be safe out there!!
WE WANT TO THANK ALL OF THE RIDERS THAT COME OUT TO RIDE OUR TRAILS . WE APPRECIATE YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS THAT MAKE OUR TRAILS MAINTENANCE POSSIBLE AND SUPPORTS OUR LOCAL BUSINESSES.
SEE YOU SOON!!

We would like to remind riders to stay on the trails. We do have some trails that go through private properties. Recently some landowners in other parts of the state have withdrawn their permission to use their property for trails due to riders leaving the trails. One example is the trail between East Jordon and Charlevoix. We do not want that to happen here.
Thanks for your cooperation!
Our groomers are now equipped with Collett Groomer Warning Beacons. “Collett Communicator’s of Oakbank, MB Canada Groomer Warning Beacons or GWB’s are devices that are installed on trail groomers and transmit a 900MHz radio signal ” dee-da ” …. “dee-da ” that can be received on channel #1 of all Collett ‘ 900 ‘ series Communicators. This signal warns snowmobilers that a groomer is near and they should slow down and be prepared to stop.

Our new sign at the Groomer Barn on Old House Road.
The Manistee County Road Commission put up new signs at the Stronach Rd. and Steinberg Rd. intersection showing the staging area there. That is the western end of the Wellston Trails system. Also, the banner is now up on the Cooley Bridge staging area on M-55. Staging is also available at our grooming barn at 18151 Old House Rd., just east of Tippy Dam Rd. Please do not block the doors if you use this staging area. Thank you.
Our Groomer Barn, constructed in 2014 stores our groomers and other equipment. Both the barn and the new tractor we put into service last year will aid us in keeping the trails in good shape in the coming season.
