35th Annual Poosey Fall Driving Tour
Preparations are underway for the 35th annual Poosey Fall Driving Tour on Sunday, October 17th. The tour will once again include the brochure and stops at points of interest along the route. Samantha Anderson from the MDC Forestry office says this year they will have a portable sawmill demonstration.
A vehicle (or other modes of transport) with high clearance is recommended, as shallow creeks will be crossed. Each year, the tour draws families and community groups riding on towed trailers or on wagons drawn by pickups or horses. Couples in horse-drawn buggies are common, as are riders on horses. Cars and the occasional bicyclist also take the tour on the gravel roads.
The tour begins at Pike’s Lake. The entrance to the lake is reached off Route W and County Road 502. Gates open at noon and the last vehicle will be allowed to begin at 4 p.m.
