BIG WOODS. ENDLESS TRAILS.

Trail Conditions

All CAMBA Trails are now closed during the spring breakup.. Trails are very susceptible to damage during the spring thaw.  Please honor the trails and state off of them during this vulnerable time.  Thank you!

(Tentative opening day is May 15, but is likely to be delayed due to the weather.)

 

General Considerations
In general, the CAMBA trails are well-drained and are rideable within 12 hours or less of an average rainfall. If you encounter a trail that is consistently wet and you leave any more than a dimple of a tread impression from your tire, you should not be on the trail.

Please exercise good judgement when deciding to ride during wet periods. The damage inflicted on the trails can be extensive and cause a considerable amount of work for our volunteers and trail crew.

Trails are particularly vulnerable during the spring break-up period when the frost is leaving the ground and even more so in the fall, during the freeze/thaw cycle that occurs as we transition from fall to winter.

Trail Closures and Special Notices
Patsy Lake Trail: The beavers have been very active near N14 – near where the northern and southern loops of the Patsy Lake Trail meet. Water is over the trail in several areas and there is no way to get around it.  We are assessing the situation and trying to come up with a solution.

HASTA Ski Trails: We have been informed that some fat bikers have been riding on the HASTA Ski Trails from the Hospital Road Trailhead.  Please spread the word that bikes are not allowed on any of the HASTA Ski Trails at the hospital. We are grooming the new Hospital Gateway CAMBA Trail for fat bikes. Please use that trail instead of the ski trails. The trail is currently about 1-1/4 mile long and is accessible only from the northwest corner of the Essentia Clinic parking lot. Unfortunately, the trailhead is partially obscured by a big pile of snow, but the trail is indeed accessible. CAMBA will be expanding the trail over the next few years. The tentative plan is to connect it to the Olson Road Trailhead.
