    Here’s your latest Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike Trails Report for the weekend of June 14: All trails except Cruser’s Kettle are open and riding great! Wednesday night’s tornado passed just north of Crosby and continued a southeasterly track. The Cuyuna Connector trail was on the fringe of that damage. Our Crew Chainsaw Volunteers were out early on Thursday cutting approximately 40-50 trees that had fallen across the trail. Later, a half dozen Crew volunteers, along with the MN DNR, cleared the debris and the Cuyuna Connector is now open! Cruser’s Kettle, located just east of the city of Cuyuna and in the heart of the storm’s path, remains closed. We really don’t know how bad the damage is on the 7 mile long Kettle because we are not able to access the emergency entry points and maintenance access roads due to downed trees. Crow Wing County maintenance crews will work to clear the emergency access roads over the next couple weeks and then the Crew will begin clearing trails in the Kettle. Until then, our Crew volunteers continue to work on weed mitigation along open trails. If you come upon a volunteer along the trail, give them some space and be sure they see you and motion for you to continue. We feel fortunate that storm damage was relatively limited to the far eastern portion of our trails and visitors can continue to enjoy the remaining 63 miles of trails. As always be sure to support the local businesses who support trails www.CuyunaLakesMTB.com/sponsors And you can support trail maintenance yourself by becoming a financially supporting member and/or trail maintenance volunteer at www.CuyunaLakesMTB.com
