Heads up, Nemadji is a heavy deer hunter area. Even during the weekdays. Just be mindful of that.

I sat on my ass the whole summer with a broken leg. 60's in November is a sign! Sitting in deer stand bad. Making up for lost riding time good!

Was there last weekend and it was perfect! The leaves made it hard to see some of the single track, but overall it was pretty nice.

Looking at the DNR website, it appears to be restricted for the next few weeks. I am not sure what this means for the single track, but it's too far of a drive for me to be turned away. Looking at riding elsewhere this weekend.

Nemadji is located in the 100 series.

Temporary off-highway vehicle trail closures begin in November

October 6, 2016

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will restrict recreational use of off-highway vehicles (OHVs) in some areas during the upcoming firearms deer hunting season. Vehicles affected by the restrictions include all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), off-highway motorcycles (OHMs) off-road vehicles (ORVs) and snowmobiles that are not being used in conjunction with deer hunting by a licensed deer hunter.

The restrictions, which apply to state forest trails and access routes but not to state forest roads, aim to protect recreational riders from potentially unsafe riding conditions and to minimize conflicts between deer hunters and recreational riders who may inadvertently disturb them.

Licensed deer hunters may only use an OHV or snowmobile in restricted areas during the legal hunting season:

Before legal shooting time.
From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
After legal shooting hours.

Effective dates of the recreational riding restrictions will be:

Nov. 5-Nov. 20 for the northeastern Minnesota 100 series deer season.
Nov. 5-Nov. 13 for the Minnesota 200 series deer season.

Because recreational OHV trails located in southeastern Minnesota close Nov. 1 each year, no additional OHV riding restrictions are necessary in that part of the state.

While many recreational OHV riders have voluntarily opted not to ride forest trails during deer hunting and small-game seasons, recreational OHV riding has become a year-round sport for many. DNR officials remind everyone who visits Minnesota’s state forests this fall to put safety first.

For more information, see the 2016 deer season map online at www.mndnr.gov or contact the DNR Information Center at info.dnr@state.mn.us or 651-296-6157 or 888-646-6367 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Almost all the riding areas up there are closed for Deer season. I had this happen last year.

I looked at the DNR site this morning. Couldn't quite find definite info. Called the DNR, the lady said the trails were open to OHV's without restrictions and hunting was starting. ??????????
Looked at the site again and found another part that said trails are under restriction for quad dragging deer back.

Well, shit.

Does Meadow Valley have much for singletrack? My knee still can't handle jumps, so the MX track isn't much use to me.

Sounds like Meadow Valley it is. If anyone shows up and sees a KX125 and a Yz250 with a white front fender and a black tail, stop over and say hi.

Right after I posted this Slopoke told me the trails were pretty washed out and rutted up.
How did it go for you guys?

I was at Meadow Valley yesterday. Awesome weather and a ton of riders everywhere.

The trails were strange. There were spots that were obviously groomed recently and others that had ruts 2 feet deep. Our group ended up doing 2 complete loops yesterday. The second loop was easier knowing what to expect. The single track was actually in really nice shape I thought but my expectations have been lowered this Fall with all of the wet weather.

My first time riding there this year was back in May; what a difference in trail conditions compared to May. I think I remember one or maybe two ruts back then. I am not sure how they would repair some of the ruts as it would be hard to get equipment back there.

Still, it was worth the trip!

Good to hear. Their SIngle track is tough when it's wet. but when the conditions are right it's a ton of fun.

I've been a few times and a couple have been a blast. and once when it was pretty wet was just a beating.

What he said. The trails at the beginning of the loop were beat to hell, but there was nice stuff to be had. I'm sure the owners have shortcuts to get to the beat parts, but yeah, it's gotta be limited to hand tools for repairing some of those ruts.
The big downhill on the single track is something I haven't seen since the Blackhills. Pretty cool that there's a place to get into something that rugged here.

Awesome weather. So much.
