Not a lot of change in the system thanks to the cold weather. Namakagon Trails are holding up well considering the traffic. Trails have a good base of 4-6 in. Trails are fair in areas to very good in others. The heaviest used areas have some brown mixed in however are grooming well. Riders can expect some icy corners.
With the warmer weather Wednesday and again approaching 30’s this weekend, trails can expect to soften some. PLEASE ride with this in mind to help maintain trail conditions with this being one of our busiest weekends. 
Areas of concern are trail 90 east between old grade and federal Rd! Follow reroute signs and watch for logging TRUCKS! Another area is Trail 15 between Rock Lake Rd and Camp Eight Rd at the Great Divide. Heavy ICE over the Trail due to a spring that continues to spread water across the trail!
