Connection to Kingsbury from Wind towers remains closed for safe harvesting and trucking activities. Please follow signage and stay on marked trails only.

Special thank you to Weyerhaeuser for working with us to find a safe viable connection so we can ride and thank you to all the club members who helped accomplish the work.
Also thank you to MDOT for accommodating ATVs at the Barrows Falls bridge project allowing trail system to remain open. Don't be a weak link join a club and respect the landowners because without them we have no trail system.
