North Benzie County line to Maple City, CLOSED…this season 14 miles due to trespass, when the sign says, “stay on trail”, that is what it means!  We will be working on a reroute option for this for next winter 2023/24. Please support your snowmobile clubs.

Please stay off groomed trails with ORV’s. We have had 18 signs knocked down so far this season, what the hell is the matter with people!

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.

This schedule will begin with regular grooming it will be changing and updated, we will keep you posted

Kaleva to Highbridge              #3 – #33 – #313  Hodenpyle, Chief.     Tues, Thurs, Fri, Sat, Sun
Kaleva to Bear Lake/T’ville     #3 – #389 – #3 – #37                              Mon, Wed, Fri, Sat, Sun
Benzie and Turtle Creek         #3 – #39 – #391 – #395                          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!!

Use Caution!! Please be observant as our fellow riders 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. 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 December, January, February and March 9am – 3pm. at our clubhouse, just off trail 3 in Kaleva. Follow the signs we are located on 14121 Industrial Drive, Kaleva.
