Wilderness Wheelers received a generous $2,000 donation from Scot Hanson and Kati Kanne, owners of Golf On The Edge through Community Charities. This donation will go towards a new tractor for the club. You can access Golf On The Edge with your ATV by taking Golf Course LN, Co Rd 77 east in Bigfork. You can enjoy food and drinks all year 'round. Scot and Kati are business members of Wilderness Wheelers. Accepting the donation is Wilderness Wheelers Trail Coordinator, Ron Danielson
Trail Conditions and Alerts: The end of the 2021 riding season is coming fast! October 31st is the last day the Bigfork & Balsam Connection Trail will be open for general use. Thank you for making this a great season for our club.
Trail Conditions: The Bigfork & Balsam Connection Trail is in fair condition. With recent rains, and lots of riders, we have gotten a bit behind on our grading as we focused on other maintenance tasks. We will be grading and filling holes these next couple of weeks. Take a look at our new kiosks when riding the B&B. You can take a picture of the map section with your phone and always have a map of the trail with you on the B&B!
New Tractor: We are in the process of purchasing a tractor for the club. We are seeking grants and donations to support this purchase. You may send your donations to: Wilderness Wheelers ATV Club, Box 319, Bigfork MN 56628 or electronically by clicking on our Membership page and selecting the donation button. Any help you can give us is greatly appreciated!
Special notes: Watch for our new parking lot that will be developed in time for our planned spring opening of May 15, 2022. It will be located right off Hwy 7 about 3/4 miles south of Co Hwy 52. It will accommodate large rigs and trailers. On our trail maps it will be located between MM 5 & 6.
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 joining 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: 10/10/21
