Trail Conditions and Alerts: Bigfork – Balsam Connection Trail will open for the season Saturday May 15, 2021!
Trail Conditions: With the early spring melt this year the Bigfork - Balsam trail is in good riding condition. Please ride with caution early in the season while we place gravel and grade the trail to prepare for a busy summer season.
Announcement! Wilderness Wheelers is pleased to announce that we were the recipient of a $10,000 Polaris T.R.A.I.L.S grant this past fall. A special thanks to our former trail coordinator, Jim Deeg for applying for this grant. The grant monies were used to purchase a 10,000 lb. GVW tandem axle dump trailer for use in areas we can not get big equipment to, and a ATV pull behind flail mower to enhance site lines for safety. Look for this equipment on the trail this summer!
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: 5/8/2021
