Trails are open for hiking

The trails from the Little Turtle Flowage Trailhead have great hikes.  You can go right from the parking lot towards Voss Lake or go left across the flowage towards the cabin on the Little Turtle River.  If you hike from the chalet, you’ll get wet feet.  You can hike on the snowshoe trails as well.  The chalet is closed for the summer.  The toilets are open and inspected weekly.

Grooming Operations Suspended

Warm weather this week and rain on Wednesday have softened the trails so grooming has been suspended for the season.  No new snow predicted in weather forecast.  Skiing conditions poor with fast icy conditions when temps fall below freezing at night and soft wet conditions when temps rise during the day.  Ski and snowshoe trails will continue to deteriorate. Thank you for coming to MECCA Trails this winter!
