EAGLE RIVER TRAILS
GOOD – Need SNOW
February 27, 2022 – 7:38am 15 degrees – High today 25 – Low tonight 7
Evil sun was out yesterday with the pop up of the temps. That along with traffic has broken down some areas. The trails running along highways on the north side took the biggest hit. Trails like 10E on the one way trail heading back to Eagle River has snirt in several sections. Especially under the big pines that line areas on the trail. Compared to the one way section that head east. It is SNOW covered & GOOD. Same for Trail 70 heading west toward St. Germain. In the woods fine but up on the hills there is burn through. Through town trail is soft & yesterday road crossing were sandy which gets dragged onto the trails causing snirt. Today partly sunny in the morning & then clouding over this afternoon. SNOW in the forecast tomorrow. About an inch. Also Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. No totals yet. Nights will stay COLD.
Groomer Tracking Systems (GTS) shows groomers back out grooming last night. Another long night of grooming for the drivers. Only trail not groomed was a trail we locally call Granpa Grahm. It is a spur off of Trail 10E about 5 miles out east. It is one of several Trail 1’s & takes you to the Eagle Water Resort.
To be safe please Ride Right even in the corners & expect conditions to change quickly. Please no off trail riding. The Clubs of Vilas County work very hard to secure easements from private landowners & folks we are losing many due to off trail riding. So PLEASE NO OFF TRAIL RIDING.
Catfish & Eagle lake trails marked & OPEN. Stay by the orange reflective barrels. Surface slush with the sun is possible. DO NOT think the entire lake is safe. Several sleds have gone in the water this season far from the barrels.
Please KEEP DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE! And THINK COLD would be good too! We’re going to make it into March!
Sleds still in the shop so “See ya on the Trails” real soon!
