Fundraising goal met! Fundraising to purchase a club owned tractor was completed December 15, 2021! We are excited to announce conclusion of our fund drive to purchase the John Deere 4044M tractor shown above. Thank you to all who contributed for your generous support! See it in action next spring on the Wilderness Wheelers trail systems.
Trail Conditions and Alerts: Thank you for making this a great season for our club. We met so many wonderful people riding the B&B Connection this summer. Almost everyone was smiling... except when the dusty conditions were at their worst! We had a great group of volunteers this summer that kept the trail in great shape, improved safety, trained young riders and greeted the visitors on our trails. Local businesses were especially happy to welcome all the visitors to our area.
Trail Conditions: With the trail closed for the season, club members will continue to make improvements to the trail when the weather cooperates. We recently created another bypass of a short section of trail that rode Hwy 7 to make it safer for our riders. Next spring we hope to have a new parking area right off the Hwy on the west side of that bypass. The parking area will accommodate many large rigs. It will be between mile markers 5 & 6 on the B&B Connection trail.
New Tractor: Our new tractor has arrived. Not only has it arrived, it is completely paid for! So many generous donors including: individuals, donations boxes, local businesses, charitable gambling proceeds at local businesses, and a large single grant from the Itasca County Trails Task Force made this possible. (See donation sources in the graphic above.)
Special notes: Next summer, Wilderness Wheelers will begin developing the Wilderness Trail. This tail will connect with the B&B trail and head west. Connections to the Timberwolf Inn, Marcell, Talmoon, and Riley's Junction will make this a popular trail. It will be a loop trail taking in a large area of the NE part of the Chippewa National Forest. Please consider joing our club and/or donating funds to help support the development of this new trail system. The more support we get the faster this project can happen!
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 as far right as is safely possible. 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: 11/16/21
