Trail Snow Report

Taconite/David Dill State Trail - St Louis County

Trail conditions:

As of March 18, grooming on the Taconite State Trail has been suspended. With the ongoing warm weather, sun, and rain over the last week, we have rapidly lost our trail base, creating large stretches of exposed ground and rocks on the trails. Swamps are also starting to open up in places. The spur trail leading from the Taconite to the Oasis Bar and Grill in Britt has been rerouted due to landowner issues. The reroute goes from the Taconite east of Hwy 53 (opposite side from the Oasis) to Peppard Rd, crosses Hwy 53 at the Peppard Rd Jct, and follows the ditch south to Peel Rd and to the Oasis.No motorized vehicles other than snowmobiles are allowed on the Taconite State Trail or on Grant-in-Aid snowmobile trails.
