Trail User Policy

Trail User Policy A goal of the NTN is to give every non-motorized user of our trails the best possible outdoor experience.  To this end we believe that different types of users should be separated wherever possible.  Accordingly, we as a Board have designated usage on various trails consistent with the terrain and member needs. At this time we are unable to completely separate snow bikes, skiers, snowshoes, dogs, and traditional skiers, so we need to share different portions of the trails.  Future trail segments to allow for separate users will be developed as money for construction and landowner permission

2012 Single Track Season “Thank you”

Dear Singletrack Supporter, With our first snowfall of the season in the books, our trail building season is nearing the end.  The singletrack committee is proud of what we were able to accomplish this year: ~We kept 2 crews in the woods building trail all summer; one on the south trails and one on the new north trail system.  Each crew was led by a volunteer who was typically putting in 30+ hours of week.   They also had paid trail workers putting in 20-50 hours per week.  The NTN has paid almost $20,000 in wages for our workers this year

NTN Forestville Trailhead Facility Gets a Facelift

While you’ve been hiking, biking, swimming and enjoying our beautiful UP summer, a lot of improvements have been underway at the Forestville Trailhead. The big news is a second bathroom has been installed. We now have a water fountain, a door that has a window to avoid inadvertent collisions and some other interior alterations. Our goal before opening for the ski season is to give the interior a fresh coat of paint and create some Nordic décor. We’re looking for donations to brighten up our building.
