Important Trail Notice: Due to the recent wet weather, several clubs in the state have been advised by landowners to temporarily close their trails until the ground is less saturated. Please make sure to check with the local clubs before you ride to ensure the trail is open before you get there. Do not move barriers or signs announcing trail closures, and do not move gates or barricades to bypass. In addition, do not drive across fields or farmlands. Be safe and respect our landowners.
