WINTER TRAIL REPORT AS OF 2/21/17
With the recent unseasonably warm temperatures and significant rainfall, the trail base has eroded and the frost is coming out of the soil rapidly. As a result, a majority of the trails have been closed.
The following Douglas County managed trails remain open at this time:
Wild Rivers Trail from the Harroun Road to the CTH A/C Parking Lot Saunders Grade Trail from the MN state line to the Schalamier Road Parking Lot Gandy Dancer Trail from the MN state line to Patzau
The Tri-County Corridor is managed by others, but it is reported to be open as well.
All other trails are closed at this time and the gates are in the process of being shut by the Northwest Trails Association members. Operating on closed trails is both illegal and may jeopardize our ability to use the land for future seasons.
