Comments Off on Trail Report: Sunday, January 8, 2017
The snowmobiling season for 2017 is starting out great! Since the first of December, we have received multiple days of snowfall, and it is snowing as I post this update! The groomers have been out each week making the trails great! Cold temperatures are thickening the ice on lakes and swamps, but please be careful.
Come enjoy our fantastic trail system and support the local businesses in our area!
The Forest Riders Snowmobile Club trail system is open and very rideable! Trails were compacted with the groomer's roller during the last two weeks, making for a good base. Several riders have been out and commented on how nice the trails are even though they have not been fully groomed yet. With the snow received on Sunday and Monday, the groomers are hitting the trails today! Come to the Park Rapids area and enjoy snowmobiling in the great up north!

Comments Off on 2016 Forest Riders Snowmobile Club Ride for Hospice
On January 23 and 24, the Forest Riders Snowmobile Club held the 2nd Annual Forest Riders Snowmobile Club Ride for Hospice. Riders left the Two Inlets Country Store on Saturday at noon on their snowmobiles riding the groomed trails to the Shooting Star Casino & Hotel in Mahnomen. The club had hoped to raise more than last year’s $1,000 to benefit CHI St. Joseph’s Health Hospice Care. At the end of the ride, the club received over $3,000!
These donations make a difference to patients, families of loved ones facing this difficult stage of life. Community support ensures specialized quality hospice care close to home with an emphasis on comfort and dignity.
The club would like to thank everyone that rode either by snowmobile or drove support vehicles, and most importantly the parties that donated to this great cause! We are looking forward to the 3rd Annual Ride for Hospice in 2017!
The groomers are out and all the Forest Rider's trails should be done by Thursday. The grooming of the trails in Itasca State Park was done on Tuesday. The trails will be in great shape by the weekend, and the weather looks to be very favorable for riding!
Note: There is logging going on south of Lake George. Ride with caution.
