GTS Trails app shows groomers out in the last 24 hours
Partial grooming overnight
Groomers were out last night grooming. The “grade” through town, alt13/3S to Three Lakes, 70W to St. Germain and 17S to Sugar Camp were groomed. Suggest buying a Sno-Eagles trail map to help with location of trails.
All in all trails are in pretty good shape. Ranking them Fair to Good. There was a fair amount of traffic this weekend so that impacts them. 10E is snow covered but has a lot of traffic. The section between Bloom Rd & Loon Lk Rd that is tree covered is thin. South to Three Lake is pretty good. West to St. Germain connect on trail 70W & south to Sugar Camp connect on 17S should be better as it was groomed last night. Heading north 10/13N is Fair. Was groomed several times this past week & has improved. 10W & both 7’s are Fair to Good.
Been writing this all season but off trail riding continues to be a problem throughout Vilas county. What this is doing is jeopardizing trail easements & will cause trail section closures. Please once again stay on marked trails.
Catfish & Eagle Lake trails are marked with orange reflective barrels. Please stay by the barrels to be safe. The lakes are marked by the businesses on the lake so stop in & thank them when you’re out riding.
ONEIDA COUNTY trails are now OPEN. Report is that all lakes are marked. Be sure to stay be the markers & do not cross an unmarked lake trail.
Three Lakes Trails club was able to get the trails in Forest County they groom open. REST OF FOREST COUNTY IS NOT OPEN
KEEP THINKING COLD & DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE!
