Trail Conditions

All CAMBA Trails are now OPEN.  Approximately 60 miles of trail will be regularly groomed for winter riding this season.

February 21 – We received another 8 inches of snow in Hayward on Wednesday.   Grooming last week’s foot of dry snow required several days.  Many of our groomers are busy with Birkie weekend activities, so most trails will not be rideable until sometime next week.  See below for current updates.

Other Winter Riding

The Wildcat Trails 4 miles east of Spooner on Highway 70 were groomed Monday 1/28.  [ed. note — check them out.  They are great fun, and meander through some beautiful terrain.]  Also, the Up North Guided Tours’ trails (Tortoise and Heaven) are groomed.  They can be found on the west side of Randysek Road, south of Cable.  Plowed gravel roads are also good riding.  The Ashland Farm Trails are in very good riding condition now.

The Town of Hayward Recreational Forest is open to fat bikes on the groomed ski trails every Wednesday evening from sunset to closing (10:00 p.m.). The trail head is on County Hill Road 1.6 miles west of Greenwood Lane.

General Considerations (not applicable to winter riding)

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.



Makwa: Please use caution riding from Gravel Pit Trailhead north as the water level is very high at the boardwalk crossing of the wetland.
