The Dirt Season has concluded in CAMBA Country. Big snows have arrived in the Big Woods and we will shortly be transitioning to snow riding . With the large amount of snow on the ground and coming, it’s going to take some time to get the winter trails ready for riding. Watch for trail reports on Facebook and this website. We will let you know when something is ready to ride.
HOSPITAL GATEWAY TRAILS: Packed and groomed Monday (Dec. 2). The trail was soft for several days, but Thursday’s warm weather should have settled it down.
CABLE TOWN TRAILS: Packed on Monday (Dec. 2) and groomed on Wednesday (Dec. 4). They are reportedly in good riding condition as of Dec 5.
SEELEY PASS: The trail was packed Tuesday and groomed on Wednesday. No current reports but it should be ready for Global Fat Bike Day on Saturday December 7.
SEELEY HILLS: A logging operation is finishing up on the southwest corner of the trail system.
BIG FAT LOOP: Grooming will start next week.
HATCHERY CREEK: Not open.
WESTSIDE/BACKSIDE/DIRT CANDY: We hope to get to it with a snowmobile later this week.
BIG EASY: Packed and groomed on Thursday Dec 5 to nearly 6 feet wide and is reportedly in very good condition..
ASHWABAY: 31+ inches of snow means that snowshoeing will be needed before it can be groomed.
Many of the trails will need to be packed with snowshoes in order to get the groomers in. If you would like to volunteer to snowshoe, please contact Ron Bergin via his email: email@example.com
Several hunting seasons have opened. While there are generally no conflicts with trail use, we offer this information to make you aware that there may other forests users out there while you are riding.
SMALL GAME & DEER ARCHERY: Seasons open Sept. 14
DEER (FIREARM): Antlerless Season December 12-15

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.
