Here is the latest update for area trails. The Int’l Falls club has trails east of town open and groomed including the Arrowhead Trail south to the 3K, Hagerman Trail, Blue Ox. Trails are open with a few spots still to go. Trails going west to Birchdale are not yet open/ready.
In the Ash River/Kabetogama area, all trails are open and groomed. This includes the Arrowhead Trail north to the 3K, the 3K to Kec’s, the Ray Spur, ToneDawg, Trapper and Woody trails. The Bill Morgan trail is groomed and in great shape to the garage. We finished widening the trail from the garage to Ash River today and it will be much better for visibility and safety. Use caution in the area just east of the Turtle mounds where a hole was created by equipment that was stuck there yesterday. With grooming tomorrow, that will be much better. Tomorrow will be the second grooming from the garage to Ash River.
The North and South Spurs from Orr to the Arrowhead are groomed and will be groomed again this week. Crane Lake has groomed the Voyageur south trail from Crane to the Arrowhead, going thru Buyck and that area. They also groomed north from Crane to the Link trail and from the Link to the Arrowhead today. From the Link to Ash River is open but not yet groomed. Early next week, it will be groomed and ready.
As stated earlier, the Park Service has staked from Rainy Lake to Ash River. They will be staking from Ash River to Crane Lake tomorrow. The portage to Kettle Falls is not yet open.
Things are looking up, so it's time to RIDE! Voyageur Country is open! Plan your trips and get up here. We will be excited to see people getting out and enjoying the great North. Ride safely and most of all have FUN!
