Good Morning,

Hopefully this post makes it through correctly, as I cannot access the most recent post on this thread.

Just wanted to let everyone know that yesterday, 12/13/16, I was able to pack down the South Unit trails with our snowmobile. Given the extremely cold temps on the way, hopefully the packed snow base will freeze in and provide a good riding surface.

I was also able to set cross-country ski tracks in the North Unit yesterday as well, so, as in previous years, please respect the multi-use trails and allow those that cross-country ski to enjoy them as well by not riding the North when tracks are set.

Thanks,

BM south is rideable and has the potential to be really good if we can get some more bikers on it or another grooming. :D

Yes, the snowmobiles did a good job of grooming. I rode it at noon and was the first on on it. Seems like everyone is hitting River Bends.

Hi Quick question for Bald South, where is the best place to start for the groomed Fat Trails, the parking lot off of Greenshield Road?

Yes, the best place to park would be either of the East Greenshield Trail Heads. I haven't been on the trails myself this week, but another ranger went through the South Unit yesterday on the snowmobile and packed the trail in some more. Hopefully it will be good to go through the weekend.

The trails at BM south last night were outstanding. Get out there and ride them before the weather turns warm.

Thank you DNR for packing them down.

As of Jan 8, Bald Mountain North was about 40% (my estimate) covered with ice. Rode it with studded tires. Feels good to be on the trails in January.
