Winter Snowmobile and All-Season Trails (As of 1/28/2020)
Currently, ALL of Douglas County trails are open. Douglas County has received more snow in the last few days! Please note, deer have been reported on trails, so please keep an eye out while traveling.
PLEASE check the trail you intend to use is open and do not trespass on private property. It is critical that we respect the landowners who allow us to utilize their property. It just takes one owner to deny the use of their land for a trail to be permanently shut down, so please be courteous and wait for the trails to officially open.
