December 27, 2022 5:53am – 8 – High of 19 today


Not a lot of traffic on the trails.   Expect to find branches down on the woods trails.  Didn’t find any trees when I rode.  Wide open trails like on Trail 10 north & west of town there was drifting from the wind.  Some of the driveway crossings were plowed shut so watch for that. Trail 3 aka Manske Swamp is freezing up.  Trail 17S heading to the Sugar Camp trails connect still has mushy spots, but safe to ride. 

As for weather. This Wednesday the temps are going to pop up to the 30’s during the day & low 20’s at night.  Weather guys are forecasting mostly cloudy.  There is SNOW & sleet forecast.  This will last through the New Year.  Stay tuned.  THINK COLD

Grooming in full force.  The past nights during the high winds drivers have been focusing on trails in the wide open area to keep the drifting cleared & breaking through driveways to clear. With wind dying down, last night trails heading north, south & east were groomed.   Here’s what was groomed:

Trail 10W/13N to the Conover connect
Trail 10W/13N aka Wisconsin River Trail
Trail 13N aka Bauers Dam ALL were groomed
Trail 3N aka Manske Swamp
Trail 17N from 13/17 intersection to Trail 3N intersection
Trail 10/13 from groomer barn through town to Trail 10E
Trail 10E to include ALL the spurs – trail to Chanticleer, Granpa Grahm to Eagle Waters & 9 mile

As to the 2 lake trails Catfish & Eagle.  Lots of SNOW drifting with slush pockets.  Not marked.  Not safe.  NOT OPEN.

Two last reminders. Please no off trail riding.  Also as you ride you might meet a groomer.   They are big & can’t pull over for us.  So pull over & let the groomer driver direct you.  And oh ya give ’em a thumbs up.  They groom so we can ride!!!


See ya on the trails again real soon!
