Carey Lake XC Ski Trails

Ok, since most everyone checks here..... I'll post this info here.
Updated fatbike info......
For the winter of 2014/15 fatbikes are ***ONLY*** allowed on the north loop of the trails.

In the next few weeks myself, a skier and members of the park board and the parks and rec.  Will all sit down and come up with a plan/rules that will work for all trail users...... with talk of dedicated fatbike/snowshoe/walking trails being talked about for the future. 
This is all part of the big picture, so you fatbikers out there....... be smart, follow IMBA'S best practice for Nordic ski trails. Be respectful and smile!!!! This is where we "the new users" can really make our mark for our future!!!!
Let's show everyone involved that we're up for this!!!!!!!
Pedal On!!

Carey Lake XC Ski Trails

*******
Please Stay OFF The Trails Until Further Notice!!!!!
*******
THANK YOU!!!

I'm meeting soon with the Hibbing parks and recreation heads about fatbike access for 2014/15.
It seems some skiers were upset at the end of last year with a biker/s tire tread on the trails.
They took pictures and what not, so PLEASE STAY OFF until you've heard from me!!!!
That's all I know right now, until I meet with Pete H. and Kraig S.

This is something I've already thought through after I got the go ahead for fatbikes on the city trails, and doesn't surprise me at all, that at the end of a long winter this would happen.
So, again I ask for your respect and patience. 
Peace

Let's try a photo!!!!! Lol

GRIMBA'S 2014 "Naughty Ride"

I know I have a problem with my photos not showing, I'm working on fixing this problem.

Anyway, today was GRIMBA'S annual ride.
It was great meeting some new people and watching our children enjoy pedaling through what little snow we have right now.
I'm working on my photo problem.

Pie Burner Scouting Ride #2

Things are firming up nicely.
The route does have some pretty good wet spots. With that said we were able to ride 95% of it with out dismounting; around the edges of said wet areas are firm and very rideable.  
If the cooler weather shows itself, we'll be able to play on frozen ponds and mining pits "lakes."
With pit decents we'll be right around the 25-30 mile mark. 
There'll be plenty of opportunities for picture taking and BSing,  so plan accordingly.  Lol
