We have received notice of a few close calls out there between snowmobilers and Logging trucks. These incidents involved snowmobiles crossing roads without looking or driving on active haul roads without radios. Please remember that while you are in a hurry to get to the great snow others have a job to do. We do not want anyone to get hurt.
Forestry Roads are used for industrial use as well as recreational use
Recreation users need to use extreme caution when using Forestry Roads, especially if they do not have radios
Drive and ride defensively, always expect the unexpected
