The groomers plan on grooming all of the FRSC trail system this week. They will groom up to, or around, but not across swamps (some sleds are crossing swamps). Lakes are still very unpredictable. The forecast shows NO snow for a week.
Grooming Schedule - Week of December 16:
Monday - Two Inlets to Spikes (Trail #21 and parts of Trail #11) and Hungry Man to Island Lake (Trail #22)
Tuesday - County Roads 89 and 4 (Trails #25, #24, #31); Two Inlets to Park Rapids (Trails #11, #19, #35), Portage Lake (Trail #17)
Wednesday - Two Inlets to Ice Cracking (Trails #18 and #14)
Thursday - Two Inlets to Osage and Wolf Lake (Trails #13 and #5)
The rest of the routes TBD and updates will be posted on Facebook and this website.
Please remember to stay on groomed trails! Private property owners have given their permission for the trail to go across their property. The club doesn't want to lose any part of our wonderful trail system.
Caution: Trail #22 (Hungry Man) has been revised and rerouted north of the lake to Trails #21 and #11. Please follow new trail markers.
Be safe and have fun riding the trails!

There is a fresh 2-3 inches of snow on the trails and still coming down Friday morning!
Lakes are not entirely ready. If we can get some help to let us know when they are safe, it would be great. It’s early season ride…BE SAFE!
Caution! There is a big tree down on Alligator trail between Emmaville and Vacationaire.

The area received another 6 inches of snow this weekend, and the groomers are out again this week rolling and packing the trails! The frigid temperatures are helping set up the packed snow too. Even though this week's temperatures will help with ice formation on the area lakes, please be aware that the amount of snow received the last week or so has slowed down the freezing process. Lakes and swamps are still not ideal! Use extreme caution and be safe!
It looks like the forecasted temperatures will be ideal for a weekend of fun on the trails...enjoy!!
Snow has arrived! The area received from 7 to 12 inches of snow. The trail gates are open and the groomers are rolling the trails this week.
The Forest Riders Snowmobile Club members were busy this fall working on clearing trees and putting up reassurance markers and new signs on the trails.
There have been some changes where trails have been realigned in a few locations. As you use the trails, please pay attention to signage that show trail reroutes. Refer to the club's new trail map for trail revisions. The 2019-2022 trail maps are available at our sponsoring businesses.
Enjoy our trails and be safe!
