Trails are open for a few days. Ground is frozen and snow is thin, especially in fields. We may have to close sometime Saturday, but definitely will be closed Sunday because of warming temps and rain in the forecast. Because of the low snow we won't be grooming during this brief period.

Chautauqua Lake trails will be closed due to warm temps and rain in the forecast beginning Sunday 2/3 and will not reopen until conditions improve.

Trails are open with good/marginal conditions in areas. The water has started to go down in most areas and freeze and snow is on top of a hard ice base. Use caution around corners, stay right and stay safe.

Chautauqua Lake trails will open at 9:00 AM Saturday with the exception of French Creek and Clymer that have low snow. Westfield and Brocton are both open. Be aware of some stubborn water holes and ice in places. Ride safe !

CLSC trails are closed at this time, we are getting warm temps and lots of rain at the moment. After the rain has passed and the cold weather returns we will reevaluate conditions and post an update. Stay tuned...
