Alarm: Snowmobile trail proposed at Blue Mound State Park
Snowmobilers currently use the Military Ridge Trail, which is close to part of the ski trail, already causing noise and exhaust problems in that area. Otherwise, the park has been quiet for the last 30 or so years that I’ve skied there. However, last winter, snowmobilers groomed a trail along Mounds Park Road, which runs through the park. This brought noise and extra activity into the park proper, destroying the skiing and the nature experience.
