Trail Notices

Attention Trail Riders:

  • When crossing railroad tracks be careful not to spin snow onto the tracks. Over time this snow builds up creating a ramping effect that has caused train derailment. These rail lines are privately owned and can be closed, which would fracture the trail system.
  • Stop at all railroad crossings.
  • Ride right.

Trail Conditions

MSA Trail Condition Reports, posted during the grooming season, are provided by MSA family or business members, groomer operators, trailmasters and project directors. Reports are not a guarantee of current conditions.

PL 48 - State Maintained Trails Meetings: PL 48 (PDF 14KB) was passed on June 11, 2013 and included language directing the ORV program to develop a plan for the elimination of state administered snowmobile trail grooming projects. Meetings were held in each of the state maintained areas: Beddington, Mt. Blue, Evergreen Valley and Frye Mt. The purpose of these meetings was to receive comments, ideas and thoughts on PL 48. This directs the ORV program to save money with the theory that the clubs and towns are able to maintain trails as a cheaper rate. Meeting minutes can be accessed using the links below.
