GTS Trails app shows groomers out in the last 24 hours
Trail Groomers were out again last night. ALL trails were groomed except Trail 70W which connects to St. Germain trails; Trail 17S which connects to Sugar Camp; Trail 7 aka Paintball field which is a spur off of Trail 17S; 17N & 1 from Hwy 45N crossing to the Eagle Lake boat launch.
Best way to learn the trails is to buy a Sno-Eagles trail map. It also had the entire Vilas county trails on the backside. Plus download the GTS trails app It is available at the App Store.
Not a lot to report except there is a lot of traffic on the trails. Many large groups out riding. So as you riding be sure to Ride Right – Stay Right. With the high volume of traffic there are trails with low level snirt. Ice base with SNOW on top. A good ride is taking 10E heading east all the way to the Three Lakes Trails connect. Continuing to what we call the Kimball Creek Trail. It takes you to east to Three Lakes & west to Alvin/Nelma area & Phelps. Plenty of woods riding. Riding more today & will have a full report tomorrow.
A schiff of SNOW overnight. Just enough to cover the vehicles & deck. Next SNOW Sunday with weather guys giving a 60% chance. START DANCIN’
Please stay on the trails to keep them trails open. Lots of off trail riding is causing a lot of problems. Trails will close if riders keep this up. Done preaching.
Catfish & Eagle Lake trails are marked with orange reflective barrels. Please stay by the barrels to be safe. Both are still bumpy so might want to slow down. The lakes are marked by the businesses on the lake so stop in & thank them when you’re out riding.
SEE YA ON THE TRAILS!
