Due to rain and warm temperatures gates along trail 4 near Hillman have been closed to protect landowners from unwanted visitors. These trails on private land are very important to our system and we can not afford to lose any of them. All the snow we had has melted so hopefully we have a better season next year as this season saw very little snow.
If you ride a helping hand would be appreciated like throwing branches off trail, move a down tree, etc. We are all volunteers so it is important we all help if you want trails to ride.
We have had a lot of logging along our trails this summer and fall but not sure about this winter. We have several areas marked for cutting and will update as winter moves ahead. Note that roads are in fair condition.
Below is our report by trails we cover:
Trail 992 to Posen: Closed
Trail 4 from Herron Road to Alpena: Closed
Trail 4 from Herron Rd. to Hillman: Closed
Trail 464 between trails 4 & 992 Closed
Devils Lake: Closed
Indian Reserve Trail: Closed
Norway Ridge Trail: Closed
Our club is a 100% volunteer club including all our groomer operators. They spend their time and money keeping our trails in excellent condition for sledders to enjoy, so if you see us on the trail a thank you would be appreciated.
Please ride safe and always stay on the trail!!!!
We are always going for new members so if you want to join a great group or people in a year around active club; visit our web site at www.alpenasnowdrifters.org.
