Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Was able to park just after the 5 mile post on N Road, where 2 very large skidders and a mechanics truck are. You could feasibly go up another half mile at most (immediate left after mechanics truck, its not moving anytime soon). However it should be noted the bridge had some holes in it. Also of note, this road would benefit from more snow, as its slicker then snot on a doorknob, aka icy. I have new 3 seasons and AWD, anything above 12 mph I'd start to fishtail.

Comments: A FINE day in the woods was had. This was tracked out so navigation was easy to follow. Snowmachines have tracked up to about 3100, including the footpath corridor. Apparently the hundreds if not thousands of miles of trails isn't sufficient enough for them. The snowmo trail hooks left in one spot (is flagged) and an easy bypass was tracked out as well. Screaming quick work in the 45 degree temps and rain - good times! Snow was soft down low but not much damage was done. Despite the warm temps up high snow was still great. Thankfully not enough heat for not long enough. The worst winter ever continues...
