    Ahhhhhhh, that explains what I saw. I was rather confused about it.


    For what its worth, there did seem to be a half dozen or so fresh tracks on it so over the weekend somebody was trying it out...

    Well, I would hope so. I ran it the Sunday after we put it in, and noticed a couple of bikes had gone down it. If I get some time this weekend, I will try to make it over to check it out.

    Where does this new section begin and end? How long is it?

    Thanks for all the hard work!

    It starts (or ends?) right across the street from the side entrance into Louie's gas station on the south side of St Helen. It follows existing two-tracks south across Romancky Rd, the turns SE then E back over to M76. It crosses M76 and continues over to the existing trail system on the SW corner of the St Helen Motorsport area.

    Map attached, not official yet until the State approves it but they gave it to us in the first place so I do not expect any changes.

    The section that is complete is part of the St. Helen ORV Route. It's east of Dunham Lake Road. It's hard to miss, looks like a new section of trail through the woods, and you HAVE to take it, to stay on the route. It's just shy of 3/4th's of a mile.


    The section Paul just posted about, with a map, is a "Gas Connector" trail. It will basically allow you to get from the Scramble Area, to the gas station, without driving on the road. It already exists as a fire road, but will now be a legal marked Route!

    I have a real knack for answering the wrong questions lately

    Here is the old route in blue, with the new section in red. Everything east of the new section is now no longer a part of the ORV system
