  • Grooming will begin when we have enough snow and the traffic dictates. Expect early season conditions with possible wet spots, tree limbs, and possibly gates closed if groomers haven’t been out yet.
  • Portage Lake Lift Bridge Opening will be weather dependent AND we await the return of the Ranger III from safety inspections in Duluth. There can be no crossing without the mat in place - safety, equipment, and bridge grates are among the reasons.
  • HUGE news as well, Trail 3 was officially opened yesterday from Dollar Bay to Lake Linden and will be available for use for the first time since the Fathers Day Flood of 2018.


  • Trail 133 - Closed until snow levels are high enough, water holes are frozen, and property owners approve due to hunting.
  • Logging - We have active logging this year at the start of the season impacting Trail 124 and Trail 3 between Phoenix and Delaware finishing no later than 12/22. You can use trail 130 to bypass the trail 3 logging. Trail 122 will get you into Gay.
