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

Trail Report – : Bayfield County, Wisconsin – March 9, 2022

Trail Conditions: Excellent
Snow Cover: 6-12
Date of Report: March 9, 2022
Area Report:


Our trails survived the ice storm and trails are still in really good condition. Clubs have gotten out and cleaned up the trails but be alert for low hanging branches and brush on the trail. The sun is getting strong and the 10 day forecast shows warming temperatures so the end of the season is on the horizon but not here yet. So come and ride while you can! 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.
  • A portion of Trail 17 in Sawyer, Douglas and Bayfield County is closed due to a stream opening up across the trail.


Namakagon Trail Groomers: After the ice storm we have about 85% of the trails opened and 60% groomed. Working on the rest this week. Trails are in good condition with 5-7″ base. Ride with caution! And watch for Low hanging branches.


Barnes Barnestormers: Started grooming yesterday did the town and 31 north, both are in great condition. To warm today going to do Moore road tomorrow and 31 south Thursday. The trails should be in good shape for one more weekend.


Drummond Sno-Jacks: Hell hit the trails with that ice storm. Today, Tuesday, March 8, 2022 we are chain sawing our way to Mason and Trail 4…with trails to 63 south opened up and trails 6 & 7 going to Barnes opened up, tonight grooming operations will get back on track…should be in good shape by Thursday throughout Drummond area.


Iron River: Trail 1 north to Port Wing is in excellent shape and was groomed yesterday.


Washburn Valhallers: Washburn area trails remain in excellent condition.  Everything is being groomed up for a nice weekend.  It’s supposed to get colder all week so we expect the base to remain solid with possibly a few icy spots.  Riders should use caution in low spots and corners where water may have developed and then froze. Trails in the north are still in excellent shape. We are still grooming two shifts a day. 


South Shore: The groomer out of Herbster is back up running and all south shore trails will be groomed by Wednesday and are in very good shape for the weekend!
