  • All trails will be groomed daily as needed. Starting with the Upper Trails finished by 8am then working our way east. Tolkien Trails will be groomed early afternoon if needed. Grooming patterns may change if our Nordic Team puts in a special request for training.
  • Please email for trail maintenance or concerns.  We will fix the issue promptly.
  • Safety Note:  Please do not ride the wrong way on trails.  Trails with steep hills are intended to be one direction to avoid collisions and injury.  One-way trails have a Do Not Enter sign posted on the wrong-way trail entrance.  Please keep a lookout for these signs and stay safe on the trails!
