A decent yr with 42 grooming runs made on this trail. we were grooming about every other day, even midweek

This trail sees a ton of traffic and has some tough spots on the hill by the cemetery but was in good shape most of the time I used it.
Great job by the grooming team.

Maybe from Moffit's Beach and across Sacandaga Lake to the Oxbow trail. Someone should know if Fawn Lake up to Perkins Clearing is still rideable, and that would give you a few miles.

Awesome, Spike! You guys up the bar every year with a terrific attitude.

I remember when that trail was always garbage, even with 3 feet of snow on the ground...

We've come along way, for sure. :dance:

I agree with fogexp
Park on Rt 10 and head towards Morehouse. There was a lot of snow still left in the woods and you probably can still get a good ride all the way to Haskells. They're the only place open. Ohio Hotel is closed for 2 weeks and the Oxbow is closing tomorrow nite.
Or you could get a good ride down to the Arietta Hotel off the Powley Rd.

Lots of snow in Morehouse. Snowing with new snow actually sticking on the road when I drove through Friday at 7:30 PM.

Rode across Sacandaga this morning snow/ice witha little slush but no problem. Frozen solid tonight at 8 PM.

Fawn, Big Brook, Willis were good last Monday/Tuesday. Probably still good.
