Snowmobile Trail Reports:
Red Arrow Snowmobile Trails (Townsend) – It’s 19 degrees in beautiful downtown Townsend this morning. We have received 5″ of fresh snow so far, with another 3″-5″ possible before the storm is over. The trails are in excellent riding condition. The groomers will most certainly be out working their magic on the trails throughout the rest of the week.
Paul Bunyan (Lakewood) – The groomers are having trouble getting through over a foot of snow that fell. This will take a while to get the trails in shape. Watch for the groomers during the day till we can get the entire system done. Trails are in excellent riding condition.
Chute Pond Snowmobile Trails (Suring/Mountain) – Chute Pond trails are open, being groomed, and are in very good condition. There may be some low hanging branches from the recent heavy snow (10-14″ in the past several days), so please use extra caution. Grooming will be ongoing- so please watch for them on the trail any time of day or night- and always yield the right of way to the groomers. Stay to the right, and enjoy your ride!
Bagley and Brazeau Joyriders Snowmobile Trails – B &B Joyriders trails received 16”of new snow this week and it’s only Tuesday. The groomers went out Monday and will be out all day Wednesday and Wednesday night. They are also going out all day Friday and Friday night. So be careful for the groomers which will be out there. The trails are in excellent condition. Some of the open fields are drifting so watch for drifting snow, ride safe. If you ride to Suring, the old trail is closed through the golf course, but the trail does go around it and back into town.
Gillett – Trails are open and groomed earlier today and in good shape.
Oconto Falls Sno-Jokers – Trails are open and in good condition. We will be grooming today and tomorrow as our volunteer groomer drivers schedules allow.

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.
