There is now a plowed parking area at the beginning of trail #8 under the International Bridge, which has an all-season porta John. Make sure you lock your vehicles and trailers.
If you are staying in the Sault please look at our list of supporters on our web page and give them your business. Please do that in all the towns you visit. The grooming entities are all made up of volunteers who want you to support those who support us!!!!!!
Remember trail base is the amount of snow between your track and the ground below not the amount of fluff piled up in the woods. 10 inches of snow compresses to less than an inch on the trail.
