Chequamegon Area Mountain Bike Trails Opening Dates Clarification
With temperatures in the 70s folks are getting itchy to ride their fat tire bikes. Patience is advised, however, as the trails are not yet ready nor legally open.
Policies vary from area to area within the region and regardless of how warm and dry it might seem, we must comply with the opening dates set forth by the land managers with which we work.
If conditions continue as they have, we may be able to appeal for earlier openings, as we have in the past. But until notified otherwise, please observe the following trail closure/opening dates as set forth by the respective agencies. If you have any questions, please contact CAMBA.
Thanks for your understanding and cooperation. These closures have been established to protect the trails - and that is something we should all support.
