Trails Update: the Sakatah Trail has NOT been groomed! An attempt to groom was made but was not successful due to low hanging branches that caused minor damage to the grooming tractor. The DNR has been made aware of this issue; please contact them directly regarding when grooming will resume.
1/19/20: Started grooming.
1/20/20: Groomer got stuck; after 4 hours being shut down, a generous farmer used their tractor to pull us out. By midafternoon we started grooming the Sakatah Trail but had to stop due to low branches. In the early evening the groomer was stuck in a ditch South of Lake Washington. It took two hours of shoveling and two donated trucks to pull the groomer out. The groomer then continued running through the evening.
1/21/20: We continued grooming without issues.
Everyone please be patient! There are a lot of drifts and unfrozen areas making it very challenging. There is not that much base to the snow and a lot of areas are showing dirt. The operators are rating the trails at best 5 out of 10. If you are reading this and currently do not belong to a club please join one, there are many opportunities to help.
Caution at intersections some signs maybe buried or missing
We are currently working on( leveling ) Grooming trail System. 180 PLUS MILES Our operators are doing the best they can. They are up against high drifting of snow and multiple stucks. We have removed the drag to knock down drifting and after that we will resume normal grooming procedures. We are also trying to make you aware that many signs may be buried at intersections and road crossings. Please use extreme caution when using the trail system.
