Snow Depth and Groomed Trail Conditions

Arrowhead/David Dill State Trail

Trail conditions:

The Arrowhead is groomed and in good condition. There remains a 1-2 mile stretch of ungroomed trail south of the Buyck/VRT GIA trail, this due to a couple beaver ponds with that has remained too thin for grooming equipment to cross. There also remain two spots on the northern end of the trail that have caused some trouble for groomers and are signed and flagged. Any other especially caution-worthy spots will be flagged or signed as needed. Please use caution on the trails and stay to the right. There is active logging happening on a number of spots throughout the Grant-in-Aid and State Trail system. In those areas, slow down and give trucks and logging equipment space. No Motorized Vehicles other than snowmobiles are allowed on State Trails or Grant-in-Aid snowmobile trails. Continue to monitor conditions online at
