The following trails have had minimal grooming or no grooming so far this season due to potential slush & rough conditions. Experienced riders only:
*Wisconsin River Trail aka 10W/13N – frozen but shiny slippery ice
*Manske Swamp aka Trail3N – groomers did a pass through Monday
*Loon Lk & Bloom Rds section of 10E(use City/Trig’s Trl to Bloom Rd) – not groomed
*Trail 17S from Trail 7 aka Paintball Field heading south to the Sugar Camp trails – not
Catfish & Eagle Lake Trails are NOT MARKED. So I’d wait before crossing
Husband Tom & friends from Plymouth rode from near Nobbe’s North heading south into town. 10E soft with road crossing burn throughs’. Bloom Rd to Loon Lk Rd trail section rough. “Grade” 3/alt 13 in good shape. Through town water at road crossings all the way through town until past Trackside. The trail was covered with soft wet SNOW. Headed north. Crossed Wisconsin River Bridge trail. Found it solid but with smooth slippery ice. West side of crossing not groomed. Took 13 north SNOW totals increased near the 1 way & trails improved to GOOD. Rode Manske Swamp/3 rough but improved over last Sunday. Right onto 17 off of Manske Swamp the first portion was rough. Improved halfway back to town. Through town. Back onto “grade” 3/alt 13 to 10E & home.
THINK COLD & start DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE!
