Trackside Blazers Snowmobile Club Trail Issue:

Ok folks! We didn't even make it one week, before we lost a trail. The Trackside Blazers Snowmobile Club would like to thank the individual or individuals who decided that a KEEP OUT sign really didn't apply to them. As a result Trail 7E at the White Otter Fish and Gun Club is closed until further notice because of off the trail riding. This was a main corridor trail for traveling between Forestport & points north that kept snowmobile riders off the railroad track. So, it is quite simple at intersection marker OD31 trail 7E is closed going north. The gates will be closed on both ends of the White Otter Fish & Gun club. Going south on Trail 7E the gate to be closed is located where the trail crosses Hawkinsville Rd. You will now have to cross Rt 28 by the Woodgate Fire House, ride thru the BoyScout camp, over to Bear Creek Road & pick up the railroad tracks to go south. And to go north reverse the process.
No grooming or maintenance will take place on the portion of trail 7E which is closed. This may also impact our ability to groom trails north of the closed area such as the BoyScout camp area, Brandy Lake Trail 7C, the Round Pound Trail, and trail 7C that heads out towards Boonville.
The Trackside Blazer Club officers & the many volunteers that put in countless hours working on the trails and maintaining good landowner relations do not appreciate the utter STUPIDITY of some people who cannot follow simple instructions to stay on the trails & NOT GO OFF trail riding.
With the expected rain on Monday, the rails may be closed to riding, so no north south travel will be possible at that point!
So to put it simply, because of a few the majority of us are now punished!





 This sign & fence was just put in place last Saturday after individuals rode off trail onto the White Otter Fish & Gun Clubs private property.They destroyed the White Otter Fish & Gun clubs fence, this replacement was done with Trackside Blazers club money/time.









In the above picture the TRAIL is off the the right side of the trees on the right. The area straight ahead of the camera shot is OFF LIMITS to riding!

  6. Please be sure to report any of these morons that you become aware of. Just my opinion but things are changing in this sport sometimes for the worse. When I was a kid you were brought up to respect your sled, weather, the land, and of course your elders (what a concept). These days any moron with an 80k decked out pickup and a brand new 800 (that they have no idea how to ride) thinks that they own the world. Sometimes it makes me sick to sit in some of our establishments and listen to these punks talk about jumping over people fences and doing 100mph through fields their not supposed to. I have had quite a few arguments with these morons and the worst just laugh at you cause they don't care. Things need to change back to old school respect or we will have nothing to ride on.

  7. Time to take a look at the young and entitled and get in their face when they are confronted with bad decisions that affect the greater Snowmobiling population.. And demand they take off their Huggies and accept due process

  8. Well now trails are closed due to ignorance and possibly lack of reading skills. Just wanted to thank these young disrespectful children for ruining riding for people who use those trails. I however want to thank the club's and the town for making riding and old forge what it is. Now weed out the dumb throttle jockey disrespecting children and we will be in great shape.

  10. Just because they are 17 and 14 does that make it ok? Where the F--- are the parents who parked there butts on machines. They should replace the barriers and go to the land owners and apologize. The kids as well as the parents are responsable

    1. Hit the nail square on the head. SomeONE should be held accountable. It is something we are greatly lacking in today's society in general. Here is a chance to straighten out some youngsters (and maybe even a couple of parents).
