Prospectors Trail OPEN WITH SOME SEGMENTS REMAINING CLOSED: Due to river crossings and dangerous wash outs, TRAIL #11 AND TRAIL #12 will not be ready to open for some time yet and definitely NOT for this coming memorial day weekend. This means travel to/from the Trestle Inn to/from the Tomahawk road is not possible in the near term. Also TRAIL #8 from the Tomahawk Rd to the Mattila will be closed until further notice and definitely not for this weekend as there are some significant mud/ muck holes where rigs can not pass and will get stuck. Other parts of the trail system look more possible and trail postings and barricaders will be removed today (THURSDAY) and tomorrow (FRIDAY). Stay tuned for another trail update on Friday but we are optimistic about TRAILS 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and TRAIL 8 from Ely to the Mattila shelter, will be opened for this weekend.
