 Dancer under the Frozen Ground Rule at this time . The Cattail and the sawmill

Generally speaking in to the future  things to remember 

Polk County snowmobile trails cannot open before the end of the weekend deer hunt at the beginning of December.  Polk County will make the official trail opening announcement. This also applies to the Stower Trail. Riding the snowmobile trails before they are open is trespassing.

Please be aware that this will be the first season the Stower is available to snowmobilers. Appropriate signage is in place. Pay particular attention to the speed limit signs. Polk County law enforcement will be available to assist those riders who do not understand what speed limit signs mean.

You may observe snowmobile club volunteers on trails preparing for trail opening. That does not mean the trails are open.  Please be good ambassadors for our sport.

We encourage all snowmobilers to enjoy our trails. Obey the laws and stay off the trails until they are officially opened by Polk County.

 However With the recent cold temperatures, the Gandy Dancer is now open for FROZEN GROUND ATV/UTV use.  For more information on recreational opportunities in Polk County, please visit the PARKS & TRAILS page or the RECREATIONAL VIEWER.
