PLEASE - RIDE SAFE and SANE.  If you can't stay on the trails on private property - STAY HOME!

We need to re-route the trail that went through Rose Manor Trailer Court.  They had to revoke everyone's access because A FEW JERKS last season rode through the residences there going much too fast and when they were stopped they argued with the home owner about their RIGHTS?!  IF YOU THINK YOU OWN THE MOUNTAIN - YOU DON"T!!  All lower trails and trail between the store and Jubilee Lake road are private property.

AND we need to re-route the trail by Summer Cabins across from Sprout Springs Ski Area.  This trail was closed by the forest service last summer because A FEW JERKS rode ATVs through the mud over and over on the trail running parallel to the highway.  If your goal is to tear up trails DO NOT COME TO TOLLGATE to ATV!

Bone Springs - Chapman Shelter

The re-dedication of the Bone Springs - Chapman Shelter was a big success.  Our 20 year old shelter now has a new name to honor the work that Bernie Chapman and his family have done over the years. About 50 people were there to hear presentations given by the US Forest service.

Congratulations to Chappy and Mary Louise!
