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.

    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
    • Just drove down from the Brainerd area. Lots of snow up there but going fast. Saw 4 young guys in a ditch south of there with not much snow and one sled with hood up smoking bad. Their still learning you need snow to cool your liquid sleds!
