**NOTE:Trails are Closed. Trails will remain closed until the trails get put back in order after the 20" crude oil pipeline is finished being constructed. I am sorry; really, but there was nothing we could do to stop this company and from this happening. If this upsets you just imagine how you'd feel if you had been the one who worked all the hours creating the trails, and it was your land. I feel obligated to close the trails for safety concerns. I've already noticed the construction workers being careless by placing flagging stakes in the middle of the trail just after a curve. I would love your thoughts on this event. Post your thoughts on the trail Facebook page.
Note: If we get a large amount (2-3 inches) of rain within a 24 hour period give trails a day to drain after it stops. During the thaw/freeze cycle ride when trails are frozen.
NOTE: The first part of short orange section is currently closed.

The trails are located on the private family-owned BJ Ranch. This is a working cattle ranch so all livestock has the right of way. Please click About Us for a bit more history.
