Michigan Trail Report

Western U.P. Trail Report – Western U.P. Bureau – 03/25

Officially the trails are open until April 1st. All clubs are no longer grooming due to the weather. You can still get some last minute riding in which would be fair. You will encounter icy spots, running water and some standing water so use caution if you are riding for one last time. Thank you for the great season and we hope to see you again next year. Have a great summer.

THE GOGEBIC RANGE TRAIL AUTHORITY Monday 25th. I have no new report from the GRTA but grooming has stopped due to the weather.

Monday, March 18th
What a difference a day can make! Gogebic Area Groomers have reported that they are done for the season. Warm temps and wet spots are not conducive for grooming. We want to thank everyone who came to visit us this season. Itfs a sad time when we shut down for the season!! We appreciate all those who came to ride and we hope to see you back here again next season!!

Last Groomed: March 21st, 2019
Base Snowfall: 12″
Reported On: March 23rd, 2019 @ 1:05pm

We have had a several days above 40 degrees. Our trails have a decent base but road trails/crossings and parking lots are bare. Be cautious when riding you may find puddles of open water on the trail. The trails will be icy at night when temps go below freezing.

We are done grooming for now due to warm temps.

You can still get some late March riding in before the snow goes away!!

Trails are open until April 1

Was a great event, nice job well done

Nice job to all

Great job and unlimited thanks to everyone at GRTA!!! Moonshine Riders

Just want to say thank you Steve 'wfo' Hamilton and Jerry Nezworski. I was extremely honored to have accepted this great gift. I think all of our volunteers do what they can for this great club. Being a little (okay a lot) choked up as you were presenting this to me, no words were able to be spoken at the presentation. Thank you again guys.

Thank you ALL!!

Good work
