Horrendous ATV Damage to Trails - 2016
The damage done to the Grand Island Snowmobile Club trails by illegal ATV type vehicles is astounding. The snowmobile club spends money on grooming and insurance, plenty of volunteer time for trail work by a small portion of members, and have procured the consent of numerous private property owners. Rogue ATV riders contribute nothing and do the damage shown above. Gates have been locked behind Tim Horton's and the MOG properties. Bridges on the Powerline and near the Stony Point Extension have been blocked, all to prevent any additional damage to the trail. The ATV people always seem to find a way to get around the obstacles and cause further damage. See that mess as you come over the South Bridge? Thank your friends on ATV's for that!
