Storm Damage 6/19/24

Biwabik to Giants closed indefinitely. Three sections washed away. It would be a total build.


Darwin Myers at Palo Tia Rd completely under water, entire trail. Not sure how fast it will recede.

Kelly Lake few sections under water, but I am sure they will dry out faster there.

Lake Mine Road is flooded, see how fast it recedes.

Narrows Bridge in Giants Ridge is flooded, I am sure it will recede but will take some time.


Please do not go through the water and slow down on trail. We dont know what is under the water and we dont want anyone hurt. We have 162 miles of trail to oversee and try and work on getting everything cleaned up again. There is more rain in the forecast this weekend.

Ride safe, steady and with extreme caution.
