Spearhead Trails – Temporarily Closed: Effective end of Business 4/5/2020 to June 10, 2020.

After much consideration, we have decided that all Spearhead Trails will be closed end of day April 5th, 2020. The closure will be in effect until June 10, 2020 and will be re-evaluated at that time. Understand that this closure is being done with the best interest and well-being of our Riders, Employees, Retailers and Communities at heart. We ask that you comply with our request in order to help lessen the spread of the COVID-19 virus in our region. This temporary closure is essential to help keep safeguard the health of our communities and promote the Governor's recommendation to limit non-essential travel within our area. During this time, our trails will be patrolled by our employees. We are going to make the most of this time by maintaining and expanding our trail systems to make them bigger and better for our riders once they are re-opened. Everyone stay safe and practice social distancing!! Spearhead Trails

Our trails are open for our riders but we are challenging you to double the standards set by our Governor.  We are asking riders to stay at least 12 feet away from other riders.

We have approximately 600 miles of trails that allow riders to have some time away and be free. Be sure and remain mindful of other riders in areas such as Trailheads, Overlooks & Play Areas.

-If you come upon a rider out exploring one of these areas,
remain in your unit until the rider leaves the area.
-If you have a full face helmet, keep your faced covered at all
time in the presence of others.
-Wear gloves
