Trail Closing for the Season: The Bigfork to Balsam Trail closes each year on November 1st with an anticipated spring opening of May 15th. The trail remains open for Deer Hunters and Trappers. This has been a phenomenal year for the Wilderness Wheelers ATV Club. Thank you for your support and positive comments throughout the 2020 summer season.
Trail Conditions: Closed November 1st - May 15th or later depending on spring conditions. Announcement! Wilderness Wheelers is pleased to announce that we are the recipient of a $10,000 Polaris T.R.A.I.L.S grant this fall. A special thanks to our former trail coordinator, Jim Deeg for applying for this grant. Ten nonprofit organizations received a Fall 2020 T.R.A.I.L.S Grant, with awards ranging from $8,000 to $10,000. The grant monies will be used to purchase a 10,000 lb. gvw tandem axle trailer for use in areas we can not get big equipment to, a pull behind flail mower to enhance site lines for safety and stronger sign posts to replace existing posts that are failing.
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: 11/01/2020
