In addition, some clubs and landowners have closed trails for the season now that hunting season has started. Please check before riding to make sure the trail you are planning to ride is still open for use. Respect all trail closures. The state rail trails remain open for riding until they are snow covered or we announce their closure for the season. Some may close before others so please check ahead.
