Groomers are running nightly, trails are in good shape. Groomers run once a day and typically at night, so towards the end of the day with lots of traffic the trails are going to be rough until the groomer goes out again. Trail #3 from the Wisconsin Border and Trail #2 east are both seeing over 250 sleds during a 6 hr period and this is making it very hard to hold the groom
Trail #3 from the Wisconsin border to Watersmeet good but lots of traffic very hard to hold a groom, Watersmeet to Paulding good. Both logging project on Trail #3 are done
Trail #2 west of Watersmeet out to Trail #1 south, very good
Trail #2 east of Watersmeet to Trail #107, good but lots of traffic hard to hold the groom
Trail #13 south to Cisco Chain, good
