Trail Update:
The Yukon has been groomed this week however with warm temps and no snow, it is in poor condition. And will not be groomed a second time this week due to temps and lack of snow.
The Dixie Spur (trail leaving from club house) will be groomed if temperatures drop, but will likely be in poor condition as well.
Corridor Trails ( town access trails to state trail) all grooming is suspended until more snow falls. The Corridor has several bare spots and is in poor condition as well.
This isn’t the report we were hoping for, we had heavy sled traffic last weekend and very warm temps this week.
🤞🏼 for snow ❄️

On my way to the Trestle, and more sunset pics from today. Axles are nice and quiet again. Creeks are scant with water, saw 1.5 puddles along the trail.

Rode last Friday from Two Harbors to Finland. Any time I slowed to under 15 mph to negotiate a part of the trail, or stop to take a picture, the bugs swarmed on me like a neon sign said free lunch. I

It will be bad.  Corners down to rocks and snirt I bet.  Last Sunday wasn't great, even by Silver Bay headed towards the Trestle.  I've sure wrecked a lot carbides and studs this year.

Update isn't as bad as I thought it would be.  Still some good riding out there it sounds like.  Get out while you can.

The brisker next weekend could get interesting!

91 miles tonight. Met 2 northbound groomers and 1 southbound groomer on the NSST.  Rode to The Trestle which was closed and back to the Frst Hwy 11 lot, with a little side trip to the straight stretch south of the NSM RR tracks.

Best trail is north of the Hockman Trail turnoff, pretty choppy south of that. The Tomahawk is choppy. Great night under what looks like a full moon. Only met 2 other sleds.

So I blew a corner last week and turns out that orange skidoo found the same corner lol.

Pretty low odds of that happening.

You only miss that corner once... No need to ask how I know!!

Since I almost missed it, I'm guessing I'll do the same thing or worse next time?  That's the first time I have been down the Blueberry trail so I had no idea that corner was coming.  Our guide sure didn't warn us.

Could be my last ride of the year... most everybody says this winter sucked for snow around here in Minnesota, and a short season happened. But, I did manage an early ride October 28th, and today is the first day of Spring. I got only about 2/3 my typical mileage, and this stint shows the last remnants of the only decent snow left. Areas in this video were from Grand Portage, and the Moosewalk near Finland. The hardpack base is almost gone, so new snow will barely hide the problem areas now. Everything is soft, and like mush. Rocks and dirt are prevalent. But, I had to get out one more time!!

North Shore ATV trails are scheduled to open May 1.

Even with the week of rain, the trails absorbed up the water very well and are much drier than I would have thought.  Although it's not yet "legal", I got 120 miles in yesterday on trails and forest roads in Lake & St. Louis Counties with very little pavement riding.  

Coming events:

👨🏻‍🚒👨🏻‍🚒The Silver Bay Fire Department would love to invite Minnesota ATV Riders to pancake breakfast Saturday June 26th AND Sunday June 27th morning from 7am to 10am!!! They are rolling out the red carpet for all the riders coming up for the weekend! They are ALSO going to be doing BURGERS AND BRATS from 4pm to 8pm in front for the AmericInn! 👨🏻‍🚒👨🏻‍🚒
Judging by SBFD Facebook page they know how to feed a crowd!!!

I rode my wheeler on the Wild Country Trail yesterday out of the Alger (highway #2) lot in Two Harbors. I saw there were many places along the stretch that had signs up, saying the trail was closed until further notice, but... the gates were all open, so I went up to Finland for a burger at Our Place. Why would they leave the signs up?

Trail was open, I saw a post about it on the club site.  Apparently the club didn't put those signs up? was what I pieced together. Idk.

I messaged Michael Brandt about it on Facebook. He said indeed, the trails were open. He said he would look into why the signs were still up. This was well over a week ago now, but I ain't been up there since, and this weekend, we're riding in Sconnie. As long as the gates let me thru, I'm going.

I've been friends with those Brandt boys for over 25 years, used to work with their dad for Lake County years ago too.   I'm sure you know the name from the Brandt memorial shelter.
