Trail Conditions: Poor
Snow Cover: Less than half a foot.
Date of Report: March 11, 2021
Effective Midnight on Friday, March 5, 2021, the majority of the Trails under the management of Douglas County Forestry will be closing for the winter season. Operating on closed trails is both illegal and may jeopardize our ability to use those lands for future seasons. Due to the recent warm temperatures, the trail base has eroded and the thawing snowpack has resulted in reduced quality of trails. Ride at your own risk.
The following Douglas County managed trails will remain open after March 5:
Wild Rivers Trail (There is a temporary closure between Harroun Road and County Road A due to flooding).
Gandy Dancer State Trail
Saunders State Trail
When leaving Douglas County or operating on trails managed by others within Douglas County, please contact the neighboring county, state, or trail operator to its regulations or status for ATV operation before entering the property.
Thank you to all of the members of the Northwest Trails Association for the tremendous amount of work it takes to open and maintain the trail network.
