Trail Report – : Bayfield County, Wisconsin – January 6, 2022

Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: 6-12 inches
Date of Report: January 6, 2022
Area Report:


The whole county received some fresh snow yesterday, and some lake effect was still falling this morning in the northern part of the county. The north and central parts of the county received the most snow. Our groomers are out getting the trails ready for some great riding this weekend. Trails in places are still early season so as always, be aware of the trail conditions in the area you are riding.  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 a few more days to get it rideable.
  • Trail 1 outside Cornucopia off Klemik road, at last pass the trail had been plowed down to dirt but hopefully the new snow covered it nicely.


Namakagon Trail Groomers: NTG Trail Report: 12″+ of lighter fluffy snow. Both groomers were out panning on Tuesday and did all trails except 15 from Pioneer Bar to Grand View which was done this morning! (Wed). Snow is very light and didn’t amount to much on the trails after panning but definitely improved them. Once we get out on snowmobiles, I’ll send another report as to how they are!


Barnes Barnestormers: Barnes received around 5 inches of snow. Our trails are in excellent condition and all will be groomed by Friday morning. The south end of trail 31, towards Sawyer county, didn’t receive as much snow, so is only in fair condition 

Drummond SnoJacks: 8-12” of new snow yesterday before noon and it was still snowing. Groomer was out yesterday packing trails.


Washburn Valhallers: Trails in the northern part of the county are in excellent shape. 14+ inches of snow in the north central part of the county. The groomer out of Washburn is grooming Thurs morning but with 8-10 inches of fresh snow, I have to believe trails will be in good shape for the weekend.  We will have all our sections groomed by Friday evening.  Trail 63 (Moquah Spur) was still kicking up rocks on last groom so riders should use caution.  


South Shore– Port Wing, Herbster & Cornucopia: Trail 40, 41, and 1 into Corny were groomed Tuesday before the snow. Snow was thin near the lake, but the fresh snow should help that. The groomer is out today, Thursday.
