Front Cover "Destination: Avery, Idaho". Great article and photos of
the St. Joe riding area in Avery - Use Area 40-B. Come ride with us and
see for yourself. Lots of trail riding and lots of play areas. Fun for the
whole family. You won't be sorry.
March 19 - Fishhook (301) to the Sandhouse (9/12 mi), 201 past Rutledge Saddle Warming Hut to Bluff Saddle, Kelly Creek to the river. A couple of new inches since the weekend. Temperature was 22 degrees, good grooming weather. It is snowing lightly in Avery this morning (3/20).
This is our last grooming for the season. But, don't put your sleds away yet! There is still a lot of snow, you can ride from the river, and there is excellent spring riding left.
Thank you for your continued support of the Avery Groomer.

February 3 - Cleaned up the first 5 miles of FS 50 (St Joe River Road) above Avery. An over ambitious wood cutter decided he needed to chain up all 4 and plow up 5 miles to cut firewood. Hopefully a few citations will make him rethink that one next time! We are going to hold off grooming for a few days until the weather warms up slightly. -5 in Avery this morning. Plan to be out the first of the week. Don't forget our BBQ Feed on Saturday, February 15th at Rutledge Saddle Warming Hut. $10.00 all you can eat all day.
