Douglas County managed trails are 98% OPEN! The last significant snowfall was on 12/29/20 and we have received a lot of traffic since then.  There is more snow cover in the northern half of the county and varying cover across the rest.  Most trails are in early season riding conditions so please help preserve our snow base. 

It is critical that we respect our landowners who allow us to utilize their property for these trails. Please stay on the trail and ride safely.  We will provide updates as conditions change.
