Trails still open at Naughton

There’s more good new at the Naughton trails. With the dry, warm forecast, the trails are still open to riding for another week, until Sun Nov 6. Make the best of it! Group rides are Tuesday night (if dry enough and with a headlamp) and Sunday morning.

The downside of fall riding is the leaves. All trails were blown off again this weekend (by Sunday noon). The lower trail should remain leaf free, as all the poplar and maples leaves have fallen. The upper trails have a lot of oak trees and these leaves are still falling, so the upper trails will need the blower treatment again. We are looking for volunteers. It can be done early morning or in the evening with a headlamp, so it does not creep into your riding hours.  Contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

One more week of Riding at Naughton

With the great fall weather, the Naughton Trails will be open to biking for another week, 'til Oct 30, two weeks later than normal. The leaves are creating slippery trail conditions, so the grooming crew has sparked up the leaf blower. The lower trails have been done. Depending on the size of the grooming crew on Sunday, a large part of the upper system will be blown off.

Naugton Trail Open an Extra Week

One benefit of a fall that is warmer and drier than normal is an extra week of riding at Naughton.  We've been able to work with our trail partners at the Ski Club and keep the trails open an extra week for riding.  They normally close Oct 15th-ish as the weather gets cooler and wetter.

Keep an eye on the Web to see when they will be closed to biking.  Please respect the Closed-To-Biking signs when they are posted.

Lost Keys

If anyone finds a keychain with a jeep and Ford key-fob, the owners are looking for them. It was lost last week somewhere on the trails. Email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you found them & we can get them back to the owners.
