Trails are open in the Soo and our private land leases do not expire on March 31. Grooming may be done but lots of snow for now and gates will be open until snow leaves.

Groomer Report

Reported On: March 27th, 2019 @ 8:01am

Lots of snow for riding. Be wary of wet areas and the edges of trails as the rain and warmth may have undercut the trail.

Follow us on facebook too

There is now a plowed parking area at the beginning of trail #8 under the International Bridge, which now has an all season porta John. Make sure you lock your vehicles and trailers.

If you are staying in the Sault please look at our list of supporters on our web page and give them your business. Please do that in all towns you visit. The grooming entities are all made up of volunteers who want you to support those who support us!!!!!!

Remember trail base is the amount of snow between your track and the ground below not the amount of fluff piled up in the woods. 10 inches of snow compresses to less then a inch on the trail.
