Price County – Park Falls, Phillips & Prentice, Wisconsin

Reporter: Phillips Area Chamber of Commerce
Trail Conditions: Excellent
Snow Cover: 16-20
Date of Report: January 17, 2020
Area Report:

The Price County Trail system consist of over 500 miles of scenic trails, great places to stop to fill up on fuel, food and beverages. The trails are maintained by 9 clubs and reported by the two Chambers.

We invite you to take a trip and see all that Price County has to offer.

****There is a reroute on Trail 120 that will be in effect all season. The reroute is on the Northern section that eliminates the old 120 trail from FR 519 to the intersection of 120 and 121. Reroute takes you NW up FR519 to Sheep Ranch to FR522 then connects to 101. This eliminates a very bad part of the swamp.****

 trails are all being groomed twice a week and are in very good condition. There is an on going logging operation an trail 94 about 2 miles north of intersection 99. Ride Safe and stay on the marked trails.

Northwoods Hi-Riders 01/15/2020

Trails around Solberg Lake area are in Good to Excellent condition. We are now on a regular grooming schedule, however there are 2 sections of trail on 121 that still need to be groomed, but are very rideable. We expect they will be groomed this week. Continue to look for hanging branches in the trail, it’s OK to stop and get them out of the way if you can. We would really appreciate that. Logging operations continue on trail 112 and 121 north to Hick’s Landing Rd. Solberg Lake is marked. Please stay on the marked trail. Roll In Point is no longer open, so there is a reroute that is marked on the lake, look for the signing on the lake. Reminder, the Northwoods Hi-Riders are having a Radar Run, Brat Feed, and Vintage Snowmobile show this weekend, 1/18/20, at Polish Palace/Sunset Bay Resort on Solberg Lake. Trails are marked to that location. Have Fun, Stay Safe.

Prentice Bushbenders Trail Report 01/14/2020

We are on a full grooming schedule now and all groomed trails are in great condition. We were able to get through 3 areas with the groomer this week that have been avoided because they weren’t frozen including the trails leading to Timms Hill. There is a swamp just to the East of the 101 intersection on trail 181 that still hasn’t froze enough to get through but other clubs have helped us and groomed from the other directions to the intersection. Trail 120 North of Windy Lane remains ungroomed because of 2 wet areas. These areas are passable by snowmobile but not with the groomer. Ride safe and have fun.

We are seeing more and more people riding off of the trails. Our club members are all volunteers and work very hard to provide the best trails to ride on. Please stay on the trails as getting kicked of will result in riding roads in most cases.

Sno-Gypsies 1/12/2020

1/12/20 Trails 80 89 90 91 and the Tuscobia were groomed and are in great shape and all of our swamps are being groomed now. Please ride safely and enjoy the trails.

All the trails in the Pike Lake area are in great shape with the exception of areas we’re not grooming yet due to water under the snow/ice.   These areas are passible via snowmobile but may be a bit rough.  This is the stretch of trail 101/10 from where it turns off the long straight-a-way leading to Northernaire/144 to the bridge at Fould’s creek.  The trail 106/19 leading to Iron County remains closed until we get word that the Iron County club has been able to open their trail.  We understand trail 101/10 is closed just east of Sugarbush Road due to open water in the swamp.   The HOPE to reopen it on Thursday, 1/9 given the colder weather.  The lakes are still not marked at this point due to slush and questionable ice conditions.  While we’re hoping this cold snap improves the condition and we mark them soon, the best option is to stay off them until we’ve determined it is safe and mark them.

Our trails are being groomed twice a week and are in good to excellent condition.  We have a few bad spots that you need to take caution. First area is on Trail 80 going east and west.  There are open water areas.  We are hoping with cold temps that we can address these two areas.  Good news is that you are able to sneak around both areas.  Second area is on trail 90.  Power company is updating power line poles so please drive slow in case they are on the trail. 

Prentice Bushbenders 1/7/2020

We have started grooming operations again and hope to have all trails that we can get to done by Wednesday night. The trails that have been groomed are in great condition. Areas that cannot be groomed yet because the swamps/creeks have not yet frozen down enough to get the groomer through are as follows; Trails 181 and 102 West and North of intersection 108. Trail 116 between County Road K and intersection 97a. Trail 120 North of Windy Lane. Trail 120 South of intersection 108 to the first gate. Trail 189 between Trail 102 (the Pine Line trail) and the Prentice Ogema Road. All trails are passable by snowmobile but the worst area are the 2 creeks North of Windy Lane. We are working on these areas daily and hope to be able to groom them within a week. Please ride safe and have fun.

“Every year, some friends and I gather at my parents’ house on Long Lake to enjoy a weekend of snowmobiling. Even though it was a little cold Friday and Saturday, we enjoyed a great weekend on the trails. We hit northern, western, and central Price County. The trails were in wonderful condition…the best we have ever experienced in our five years and 150+ miles of riding each trip we take up here.”– M. Johnson

for the wonderful the trails and people we met. We travel around 3 hours a couple time a year to come to this area for the snowmobiling and we haven’t been disappointed yet with how great your trails are. Keep up the great work!!!!!!!!!!!” – J. Leeman
