Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: 6-12
Date of Report: March 16, 2022
Spring has sprung and our trails are deteriorating quickly. There is still a lot of snow on the ground, especially in the northern part of the county, but with the temperatures in the forecast snow won’t last long. There’s probably time to get in one last ride but temper your expectations.
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.
Namakagon Trail Groomers: We are done grooming. There’s still snow on trails but will probably diminish quickly this week. It’s saying 50 for Wed!!
Barnes Barnestormers: Barnes is done as of last Thursday 3/10/22.
Iron River: Trail 1 north is pretty solid yet. But the roads are bad. Jeff groomed on Friday, 3/11/22 for the last time.
Washburn Valhellers: All of the Washburn Valhellers trails were freshly groomed prior to the warm up. They will provide great evening rides for anyone wanting to get a ride or two in before putting their sleds away. But Mother Nature is unpredictable, so who knows! Grooming will be in a holding pattern until further notice. Out of Valhalla we’re pretty much done with the warm temperatures. Possibly Groom on Friday night and Saturday night. But still lots of snow on the trails.
South Shore Trail Club: Went grooming Monday and Tuesday, most trails are still great however access into all 3 South Shores towns is not very good. Port Wing is ok from the south. Herbster is all pavement or gravel and Corny has logging on both sides of town, I had to turn around yesterday due to mud.
