Red Arrow Townsend – Wednesday, February 7th
It’s 1 degrees this morning in beautiful downtown Townsend. A little warmer than the last couple. The groomers were out last night and tell me the trails are in “GOOD TO VERY GOOD” condition. Good west of 32, where the potholes need more snow but all else is fine. And Very Good east of 32 where it can’t get much better. All areas have icy spots to be aware of, especially in the corners, so beware.
Paul Bunyan Riders – Wednesday, February 7th
The groomers are back in and the trails are in good to very good shape. With the cold weather they are holding up very well. This weekend should be a good one with temps in the low 20’s.
Chute Pond Snowmobile Club – Sunday, February 4th
Our trails are OPEN and in good condition. We got 5-7″ of fresh snow Saturday, and all trails were groomed last night.
Our groomers will continue to work all week long to make the trails the best they can be. Please be aware the groomers may be out at any time- day or night. Please watch for- and yield to the groomers when you see them.
Bagley & Brazeau – Thursday, February 1, 2018
We received 2 plus ” of snow Wednesday. The groomers went out after the snow stopped and also will be going out Thursday. The drivers think the trails will be in good condition for the weekend.

When the snow begins to fall, snowmobile excitement quickly rises in Oconto County. Well marked and meticulously maintained trails meander through this region providing a true Northwoods riding experience. Perhaps one of the most well known trails in the state is the Nicolet State Recreational Trail, marked as State Corridor 7.
This 89 mile long former railroad grade offers a north-south route from Gillett thru the towns of Suring, Mountain, Lakewood and Townsend all the way north to the Michigan border and to the UP trail systems.
From this main route, riders can choose from unlimited destinations such as a very scenic ride on the Chute Pond Trail System near Mountain.
Just north, the Paul Bunyan trails in the Lakewood area, and the Red Arrow trails around Townsend lead to interconnecting trails that head in every direction. These include westbound connections to Langlade County and the Wolf River State Recreational trail.
You can also go northeast toward Waubee and Wheeler Lakes
or east to Marinette County where trails around the Caldron Falls and High Falls Reservoirs and the scenic Peshtigo River are maintained by the Iron Snowshoe club.
North of Crivitz, local trails connect with State Corridor 3 for a journey north to the Dunbar, Goodman and Pembine areas. From this point riders have the option of taking a trek into Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, or traveling west back towards the Nicolet State Recreational Trail.
Throughout this region riders will find warm welcoming resorts to call home for their weeklong or weekend excursions. Plenty of trailside stops offer gas and excellent food ranging from delicious steaks to juicy chicken and hamburgers.
