News Update

Trail Report: Tuesday, March 13, 2018

Last weekend, snowmobilers were out enjoying the 8 to 12 inches of new snow the area received on Monday, March 5!  A huge thank you to our dedicated groomers who do a great job making our trail system outstanding!

Groomers are out this week doing spot grooming in Itasca State Park, Trails #11, #18, #21, #22, the Scout Trail, and trails from Lake George to Emmaville.

PLEASE NOTE:  Trail #32 from Holiday Corner (located at the intersection of trails #31 and #32 on the Pine Forest Road) going west for about a mile has been plowed to the gravel for logging purposes.  Snowmobilers are driving on the plowed sides of the trail.  After this part of the trail, the Pine Forest Road, Coon Lake, and Spider Lake trails going to Itasca State Park are great riding.

Due to the warm weather forecasted for the coming weekend, it may be the last good sledding weekend for the season.  Get out and enjoy the fantastic scenery of the Forest Riders snowmobile trail system!

Snow, snow, and more snow!  The Park Rapids-Two Inlets-Itasca State Park area has received 10-12 inches of snow since Sunday, February 18!  The groomers hit the trails yesterday and are having fun making the trails great for your riding this weekend.  We finally have great snow and the temperatures will be perfect for hitting the trails.  Please note, the Hubbard County Sheriff's office has issued a winter weather advisory from 3pm Thursday until 6am Friday.  More snow in the forecast. Travel safe...

The area received 3 inches of snow last Saturday so the groomers are out this week getting the trails ready.  It should be a good week to ride the trails and temperatures look great for the weekend!

Trail Report: Friday, February 2, 2018

Trails:
Groomers did not go out this week, but riding has not changed seeing the weather has been colder.  Forest trails are still good.  The club ride for Hospice last weekend started in Two Inlets heading north to Spike's, Backwoods Bar & Grill, Laporte, and Walker and returned on the Heartland Trail.  County Highway 4 was icy and Trail #32 (Coon Lake Trail) was icy due to logging.  Beside these two areas, it was a great ride.  Ride safe!

Gas Stations:
Akeley Cenex, Becida Bar & Grill, Casey's General Store, Clancy's at Vacationaire, Elbow Lake Store, Emmaville Inn, Huntersville Outpost, Ice Cracking Lodge, Northern Convenience, Northwoods Grocery & Cafe, OBT (Osage Bait & Tackle), Pinehurst Resort, Rock Creek General Store, Shell Sport & Bait, T&M Express, Two Inlets Country Store, and Woodland Store.  Please note, gas is no longer available at Itasca Junction (closed) and Spike's.
