Trail Conditions Report

  • Please review “Trail Info and Map” on the side menu for information regarding trail changes. Please remember that trail conditions can rapidly change from the time a Trail Report has been posted, and that you ride at your own risk.
  • Safe trails are the responsibility of every rider, so if you see a hazard, please remove it. If you are unable to address it immediately, please notify the Trailbuster Club, by phone, email, text, or  , as soon as possible.
  • Click here to go immediately to our Trail Reports, below our Trail Map. Refresh this page using Ctrl-F5 to be sure you're looking at the current map. Click anywhere on the map to view it in higher resolution (and use Ctrl-F5 again on the hi-res map).
  • Please Note: Please be aware of trail changes and stay on the trails. We are so grateful to our landowners who give us permission to have a trail on their land, so please RESPECT them. You are also reminded to yield the right of way to a groomer. When meeting a groomer in tight places, move off the trail as far as possible and stay there until the groomer and drag passes by you to avoid sliding down into the equipment. The groomer cannot move off the trail nor back up. When following a groomer, stay back 100 feet until you can safely pass or are given the signal by the operator to pass. Always dim your headlights when meeting or following a groomer as the high beams blind the driver.

Note: As a point of reference, the groomer barn is considered the mid-point of our trail system for north/south Trail Report descriptions. The groomer barn is located on Sly Hill, as shown on our online trail map.

  • Saturday/16 Feb 2019 – Trails C7/C4/C4A from groomer barn to West Leyden were groomed tonight. Trails C7/C4H/S73B from groomer barn to Lee Center/Sleepy Hollow Golf Course and the Beeches were also groomed. Trails are in good shape; weather is good; lots of traffic this weekend. Ride safely; ride right and between the stakes. Don’t be tempted by new snow off the trail. Landowners give us permission to ride between stakes, not elsewhere. Save your trail by being respectful of our landowners! Have a great day!

  • Thursday/14 Feb 2019 – Tonight, Trails C7/C4/C4A/C4I from groomer barn to West Leyden and Point Rock were groomed. Also, Trails C7/C7D and C7P from groomer barn to Camroden Road and Delta Lake State Park were groomed. Conditions are good.

  • Wednesday/13 Feb 2019 – Tonight Trails C7/C4/C4A from groomer barn to West Leyden were groomed.

Trails C7/C4H/C7D/S72B and S73B from the groomer barn to Lee Center, Sleepy Hollow Golf Course, the Beeches and Chestnut Street were also groomed. Since there was a lot of ice before this week’s snowfall, exercise caution.

  • Saturday/9 Feb 2019 – Trails are open. We have not been out yet to survey them. High winds/blowing snow/hard ice base and possible water holes. Until we get out with the groomer, please ride with extreme caution. We will advise when we are going out. Please stay on trail and report any hazards to the club. Thank you and ride safely.

Another fatality in the state this weekend brings the total to 10 for this short season.

  • Friday/1 Feb 2019 – Trails C7/C7D from groomer barn to Chestnut Street/Rome and up to Camroden Road were groomed tonight. All the trails on our system are in great shape. Ride before the forecasted warm weather and rain arrives again ☔ ☹.

  • Monday/28 Jan 2019 – Trail C7/C4/C4I from the groomer barn to Point Rock was groomed today. Besides grooming, our two operators completed a lot of trail maintenance that needed attention, like cutting felled tree on trail, including one in a creek near a bridge which was causing a potential ice jam, filled major water holes, cut branches, cut down stumps. Trail is in good shape. The two were out there from 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. This is what I call dedication to the club. Next time you see volunteers putting in time for their club, give them a thumbs up. BTW, what have you done for your club lately?

  • Saturday/26 January 2019 – Trail C7/C4/C4A from groomer barn to West Leyden and back was groomed tonight. Wet holes were filled in. Stay away from Trail C4I as water came up to bridge level, then made another stream with a flooded area. Will assess this situation on Monday.

  • Monday/21 Jan 2019 – Trail C4/C4A/C7 from West Leyden to groomer barn groomed late this afternoon. Groomer had broke down last night in West Leyden. Today, three volunteers worked the problem and groomer returned to groomer barn. Also this afternoon, trail C7/C4H to Lee Center and new trail to Sleepy Hollow Golf Course was groomed. These trails were reported in good shape. Tomorrow, trail C7 from groomer barn to Beeches/Chestnut Street and C7D to Camroden Road will be groomed.

  • Sunday/20 Jan 2019 – Groomer went north from groomer barn on C7 to West Leyden. However, the machine encountered a mechanical problem in West Leyden and did not make the return to the groomer barn. Grooming will resume after problem is taken care of. Grooming of the south trail to Lee Center, state park and over to Camroden Road is planned for Tuesday.
