Your Online Trail and Travel Guide for Snowmobiling the U.S. & Canada

Trail Report – : Bayfield County, Wisconsin – January 12, 2022

Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 4-12 inches
Date of Report: January 12, 2022
Area Report:


No new fresh snow this week, but we did have cold temps which helped us hold onto the snow we have. There’s some good riding to be had out there.  Just a reminder to all to please respect private landowners and stay on the trail. Stay on the trail or stay home!


Some trouble spots to note:

  • The Wally Polk Trail/Trail 40 near Port Wing and Herbster is closed. Flag road is a suitable re-route.
  • Trail 1 to Red Cliff/the Casino is temporarily closed due to a landowner issue. We have a solution, just need more to get it ready.


Namakagon Trail Groomers: All trails were groomed 1/10. We have a 2-4″ base. Some trails are good condition. Some are fair.


Barnes Barnestormers: The Barnes trails held up well despite the heavy traffic we had last weekend. I would rate them as good to excellent, there are some bare spots and icy corners. We will be grooming all week and all should be ready for the upcoming weekend.


Drummond SnoJacks: All Drummond trails are in good shape. All caught up and Trail 4 to Sanborn are looking good.


Iron River: Trails around Iron River have all been groomed and in good shape.


Washburn Valhallers: The Washburn groomer will be out just about every day this week.  Trails look to be in excellent condition for the weekend.  We still have a few rocks coming up on the Moquah Spur; we will catch this section again just before the weekend. Trails around Valhalla area and north are in excellent running condition. Trail one to the Legendary Waters casino is still not open we are currently working on a reroute. 


South Shore– South Shore trails are groomed and in good shape also. Trails 3, 43 and 66 are groomed and in very good shape! Still need more snow by the lake but definitely better than last week.
