The landowner for years had been building a wood pile after the season in two locations in hopes of others respecting the” No Trespassing” signs that they had to install after the end of each snowmobile season. With over 80% of all trails in the state being private property access can be denied and has been before Statewide for these type issues.
We packed up the needed items this weekend and headed out to resolve the issue and help prevent the closure of this vital section of our trails. We were pleasing surprised when we meet with the landowner to find their willingness to help us with the task at hand. So without wasting any time we ALL got started on the work to be done. After removing a few downed trees and also the wood piles they had been installing over the years we were able to get started.
As we all know without volunteers to do trail work, we would not have a trail system at all. We are blessed that we have several likeminded club member that always find the time do complete what must be done. Another blessing on this beautiful sunny late summer day was the landowner worked right along with us to complete the task, for trails on their land they do not use in the winter. Not only did they share the work load they also made us a wonderful lunch as well. A special thanks to Mike & Ray for always being available when needed, I so enjoy working with you both. But a very special thanks must go out to Nancy & Mike the landowners not only for your help but the use of your land for all to enjoy in the winter...EZ
