Taylor Fork access closed
The Forest Service has permanently closed snowmobile access to Carrot Basin from the Wapati parking lot.  A new trail was built this summer to provide access from the Taylor Fork area.  The Sage Creek parking lot (along the highway, just south of the Taylor Fork turnoff) has been enlarged and improved.  The groomed trail will go out the north end of the parking lot and will parallel Taylor Creek road for about 2 miles before turning south. The new trail meets up with the existing trail after several miles.
There is still access to the Wapati cabin and the horse trail but you will need to backtrack 1-2 miles down the old trail.
As this is a brand new trail, please be conscious of potential hazards.

New trail use permit required
A new trail pass will be required to use groomed trails this year.  Click here for a detailed explanation of the new trail pass.  In summary:
* The pass costs $18
* It is good for 3 years
* It does not replace the (permanent) state registration sticker
* The pass applies to snowmobiles, snow bikes, fat tire bikes and any other mechanized equipment using the groomed trail
* Revenue generated by this pass goes directly to the Montana State Parks Snowmobiling Program which funds the trail grooming programs throughout the state

A list of local vendors selling the pass will be posted here soon.
