Grand Marais Trail Report – 12/19

As of tonight, we will be grooming all of our trails every night! Yahoo! There is still one 450′ section on #88 that needs major brushing/clearing but the guys are going to see what they can do with it today while they are signing the reroute east of M-77. Hopefully, they’ll be able to punch through there and link in to #443 by the weekend. The reroute for #443 is complete and passes through some beautiful terrain with high ground where you can see long distances and a view of North Lake! These reroutes look like they will be a nice improvement to our trail system adding a couple of miles each to #888 and #443.

BE ALERT: Loggers are plowing H-58 from the Visitor’s Center to the Log Slide on #8 west AND Adams Trail on a section of #88 and #888. Be sure to watch for signs and logging trucks where we share the road.

Grand Marais Trail Report – 12/11

The latest Lake Effect Snow Machine delivered anywhere from a few inches in town to as much as 10 inches out in the snowbelt! It’s about time to get out there and play! Based on the National Weather Service snow depth map, we now have up to 20 inches on the ground over most of our trail system! We are currently under a Lake Effect Snow Advisory calling for more through midnight tonight. If this keeps up, we will have some awesome riding over the Christmas/New Years holiday! Woo Hoo!!

Still, consider this early season riding as we haven’t gotten all the trails packed and the loggers are still plowing sections of the trails. If you are out and about watch for ice, downed trees, limbs and especially watch for logging signs/trucks along Trails 8 West, 89, 443, 88 and 888.

Crazy 8’s Open House, December 28, 2013 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Groomer Barn with Brats, dogs, refreshments and snacks! Meet the team, check out the groomers and make new friends. You will be able to get your official ‘Crazy 8’s’ gear straight from the ‘Home of the Crazy 8’s.’ Oh, and we will be giving away prizes, too!

As always, Ride Safe and Bring them Home Alive!
