    Winter Recreation Trails (Reported on 1/14/2022)

    Douglas County is 100% open.  Most trails have been groomed and are in fair to good riding conditions.  As Grooming reports come in the Trail Conditions will be updated. Please stay on marked trails. It is critical that we respect the landowners who allow us to utilize their property. Be sure to check with neighboring counties to ensure their trails are open before you ride.
