Trail Conditions: Closed
Snow Cover: 24 to 36 inches
Date of Report: December 10, 2019
Bayfield County Trails are currently closed. We have received a lot of snow which is going to make for a great season but has created challenges for opening the trails. There are a lot of downed trees from the heavy snow and it’s been slow going for clubs to get to all the trails. The snow has also insulated swamps and wet spots creating some dangerous conditions, we’re hoping that some packing of the trails by clubs and the cold temperatures this week will fix many of those. Additionally, the anterless deer season goes until December 15th and we want to be sure to honor the rights of our private property owners that allow the trails to go through their land. With all that we anticipate our trails will open on December 16th. In the meantime, the Tri-County Corridor is open as are the many miles of Forest Roads.
