Take a break at Mile Marker #8 and see one of the biggest white pine trees on the B-B Connection Trail!
Trail Conditions and Alerts: Bigfork – Balsam Connection Trail is busy!
Trail Conditions: Overall the B-B trail is in good condition. We continue to provide maintenance on the trail such as grading and mowing. We try to do these during weekdays but occasionally we have emergency repairs that need to happen on a weekend. Watch for these types of activities as you are riding so as not to be surprised!
The Governor's COVID-19 recommendations are in place. Gas, food and lodging are available. Please remember to follow social distancing when stops are made. Our trail toilets remain open but we are not able to disinfect them on a regular basis. Please bring your own supplies to disinfect door handles and other areas that you touch.
Special notes: CAUTION! Logging is taking place north of Cty Hwy 7 between Mile Marker 7 and 8. Logging trucks are also hauling between Mile Marker 10 and Mile Marker 12.
Wildlife Sightings: Watch for deer, especially the fawns. There are a lot of them out. Some trail riders have been lucky enough to spot gray wolves and black bears on the trail. Many hawks are being observed as well.
Wild Berries: Stop and enjoy the tasty wild raspberries!
Reminder: While riding on township and county roads the law requires us to stay to the right hand side of the roadway while using these corridors and obey all other traffic regulations. On paved county roads please stay on the blacktop to prevent erosion of the unpaved road shoulders. We also ask you to avoid ditch riding on this trail as we have to fix any damage caused by ATV use along our Bigfork to Balsam Trail corridor. Stay on the Trail!
Please check back regularly for current riding conditions throughout the riding season. Updated: 8/1/2020
