Red Dot / Moose Walk Trails

8 posts in this topic

Hi All,

Weather permitting, I'm hoping to get a few hours of trail riding in this weekend. Does anyone know if any of the Red Dot or Moose Walk/Run trails are closed for archery season, weather or any other reason?

I've checked several places including the DNR and it doesn't look like any of the trails or Finland State Forest are closed, but I just wanted to check and see if this great group had any info to the contrary.

Thanks!

Thanks. Hoping for some decent weather to enjoy lunch on the trail and the sights.

Thanks again!

Trails are open till November up there.

It will be more than a few hours riding also, unless you go out and come back the same trail before getting anywhere. Great trails, beautiful country, and the weather sounds like it will be good for you. If it rains though, be prepared. The trails are all clay and it gets slippery. The trails don't rut or anything, but the water sits on the trail for quite a while.

Just got back today from Beaver Bay. The colors are really popping up there now, nobody was on the trails on Friday but ran into quite a few on Saturday.

Just a follow up -

We had a great ride this past weekend. It was just a day ride, but we did the entire Red Dot system and had a great time. We had a lot of rain Friday night, so there was no dust, and plenty of mud. Brought the grill/cooler and had lunch on the trail. The colors are beautiful - Great time to go up if you can. Not too busy - We saw maybe 5 other groups the whole time we were out.

Got up to Beaver Bay and realized we forgot the camera, otherwise I'd post some pics. Next time.

    • Good luck Anyfish2. Saw quite a few out in the rain driving home today    
    • Well, i will try my hand at picking up another bird for the team starting tomorrow.  Weather looks to be challenging at best over the next 7 days.  I will give my best effort when i can get out.   Birds are still hanging around the area well,  hopefully i can get a tom to break from the Hens.  
    • and this?   
    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
    • They talked today about the D inability to find shooting lanes....I like Reilly's ability to walk the blueline with the puck and shoot quickly...maybe he could help...but he is not physical by any means... BB stated he wants a big physical Dman for starters.
    •   Good stuff...the main diff between Chicago and Mn was the way the Bowman took ownwership of the problem and Fletch did as expected today and blamed a hot goaltender, danced around pointed questions...he did however admit we are in a tough position with the Cap and few draft choices but steered clear of ownership to that problem....did you listen in by chance...it was almost laughable
    • BB, I cant say I disagree with any of those observations. They didn't produce when it counts. That is what really matters, but it isn't the first time that teams excel in the regular season and flop come playoff time and it certainly isn't something that is isolated to the Wild. The Hawks get some slack because they have won 3 cups in the last 7 years, but fact is they have been bounced in the last 2 1st rounds too. By that, they are no better than us. We will see what happens to the Caps. They have a tough draw with the Pens this round, but its not a stretch to say they will get bounced 2 years in a row and be the Presidents Cup winner. Lots of teams have that issue. Anaheim has had that tendency too. Playoffs are a whole different animal. The team makeup that works in the regular season usually doesn't translate well in the playoffs. I agree the Wild need more beef. Staal certainly helped, but they are far from a heavy team especially on the back end with our D. Early on I thought we had one of the deepest D corps in the league. Looking at them in this playoff series they looked weak. We needed a guy like Folin to step in and play some minutes and make a difference, but he was shell-shocked in his first playoff game. I don't think we have much help in that area in Iowa either. The heaviest guy we have Seeler, is a liability big time and I don't know if he will ever make it up to the big club.
    • You can pre-order on a Japanese web site ... i almost did but got spooked out with all the Japanese language and had no idea how to translate and know what shipping and price was LOL     i want one but will wait!!!  so many lures and not enough time
