had today off so I thought I'd take the 450 out
Went to cc Andrews got within 20 miles of it the temperature dropped from 60 to 35 all trails were 99% covered in snow...

Good to know. We were just thinking of this.

Thanks for the update. I was considering Andrews, Cheng, or Appleton for Sundays riding pleasure. Looks like I have one less option.

Meadow Valley has been teasing that they have been drying out quickly and might open early. Keep an eye on their facebook page for announcements.

Meadow Valley's trails will be pretty nutty this early I'd bet.

When I went with Slopoke it was nutty down there and was only mildly wet.

If they do open early, I'd bet it would be track only. Although they do plan on having the trails open every weekend this season.

yeah a 450 in the mud/clay at meadow valley is a challenge. that place needs to do some trail maintenance for 2016. it was rutted to fuck last time i was there in November, at the least switch the direction.

Anyone seen any trends in recent years for when the trails start opening back up? I'm sure it's weather dependent, etc, but I'm curious if they are usually open by early or end of May, or what. Andrews is better than nothing, but I almost got ran down by UTVs this weekend as they flew around corners coming the other way. No thank you

I went to meadow valley last weekend and rode for a few hours, alone, it was really dry fast and dusty. for me its worth paying to ride there since there is only one way traffic and hardly ever any quads there. one of my riding buddies was hit head on by a quad last year at namaji and broke a whole lot of his leg in the woods, and i've been really turned off by the dnr trails since. meadow should be open tomorrow and probally with this rain pretty good. I might go alone again.

I was at namadji yesterday. most of its closed, whats open is really soil soaked. over the winter quads and logging equipment have done a number on whats open. lots of trees down as well. I plan on hitting huntersville saturday if i can get out of work. on the positive report I think I saw the biggest porcupine ever. MF was like a sharp dog

I didn't think the madj was open at all yet, aside from Gandy. I was thinking of killing a couple hours at Cheng but I'm guessing it's a mess as well.

How is Meadow Valley for kids?

23 miles of trails sounds nice and I have never been there before.

My son and I are new to dirt bikes and I am looking for a mellow place to bring him to ride. Ideally, I would like to find a place where we would be able to run our own pace (slow-ish); limiting the possibility of getting run over. My thought is that pay to play would limit the number of people on the trails.

Plus, he has dreams of MX (not that the TTR is up for that most likely) so he could check that out.

I've seen kids there rippin hard but I think its pretty advanced for new riders. if its wet at all its slick. try pine city that's pretty kid friendly. I'd just fear some no shirt drunk on a 4x4 plowing into my kid in the state trails.
