Trails are closed
Warm weather and lack of snow have forced us to close trails. We have suspended all groomer operations for the season.
Our trails are closed at this time as they are very icy and not safe for travel. We recommend not riding until we announce otherwise. Corridor 11 from the intersection of P151 down to Walkers field is not passable at this time. See the map on our home page showing the impassible sections of Corridor 11
Corridor 11 from Berry Rd to Profile falls has areas with ice jams and there is a washout on the power lines. We are working to address these issues. Andover Snowmobile club has closed trail 345 in the area of Hill because of ice jams.
We will not resume groomer operations until we receive some substantial snow and conditions improve.
Just came back from assessing trails and the news is not good. We are recommending that you not ride any of our trails until we announce otherwise. In South Alexandria trail 11 remains closed from Berry Rd to Profile falls, ice jams and flooding. Andover Snowmobile club has also closed trail 345 in the area of Hill for the same reason. Trail 11 from Bog Rd up to Cass Mill road still remains closed. There is a lot of open water, mud and wash out area on the power lines which is impassible. Conditions are not safe or suitable to do any trail repairs at this time. Trail 11 from Cass Mill Rd up to Gale Rd is open, but very icy and with a lot of open water holes and riding is not recommended. Trail 151 up to Hebron is in the same condition. We will not be grooming any of our trails until we receive some substantial snow and things firm up.
Also, I've been asked by a number of people about the Hemp Hill trail between Bristol and Alexandria. This trail is closed and will not open this season. There are a number of issues with this trail, including a damaged bridge that is not safe.
After some significant delays with repairs on our groomer we made it out today and began the process of opening trails. The bad news is we found a section of trail on Corridor 11 in South Alexandria on the power lines with a major washout. We've temporarily closed Corridor 11 between the intersections of Cass Mill Rd and Bog Rd and we're trying to get the issue resolved as soon as we can. We're are planning to work on Primary Trail 151 tomorrow.
We have received several inches of snow over the past few days. Currently our groomer is down for repairs and hope to have it fixed for this weekend. Also we are working to resolve a remaining land owner issue. We hope to have it resolved soon. For the time being please stay off the trails and do not go around any locked gates until we post otherwise. Thanks for your patience.
We received about 12 inches of snow from the storm earlier this week. However, our trails are still closed at this time and will not be open for this weekend. We still have some additional work that needs to be done before before trails are safe enough to open. So please stay off the trails until we post otherwise. Check back later for updates
