Fall colors are coming to an end! October 18, 2019
Trail Conditions and Alerts: Bigfork – Balsam Connection Trail is Open - The B-B trail closes for the season on November 1st and will reopen next spring when conditions allow.
Trail Conditions: CAUTION! Logging operations are currently underway north of Cty Rd 348 on the Cameron Lake Access Road near B-B mile marker 20. Watch for equipment and trucks on the trail. With the consistent rains there are areas of the trail that are covered with water. Please drive through these areas slowly so as not to displace the trail bed underneath the water. Except for these wet areas the B-B trail overall is in good condition. Thank you for all of the positive comments on the trail! Our volunteers are out there every week making improvements to the B-B. Take your time and enjoy the scenery. Slower driving, especially on corners and narrow parts of the trail will make for more enjoyable riding for all users. Recommended maximum speeds for all gravel roads is 35mph and for OHV trail sections 25mph.
Maintenance work continues on the trail during normal weekdays. Grading, mowing, boardwalk maintenance and gravel restoration will continue throughout the ATV season. Please watch for these activities as you ride the trail.
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: 10/18/2019
