Trails Good to Fair 

February 3 2019 8:45am – 30 – High 36

Heavy traffic, sunshine & temps in 30’s yesterday.  Trails were pretty well used.  Saw groomers out early 5:30pm ish heading north.  All trails except 1N & 17S toward Sugar Camp groomed.

On average still GOOD but could use more SNOW so there are FAIR conditions too.  Trails east & north of town have more SNOW than west & south of town. Here is a breakdown of trails:

  • 10E early morning was pretty GOOD as it had been groomed the night before but FAIR by early evening. Section from Bloom Rd to Loon Lake Rd heading west in the woods is snirty/rough.
  • 3/Alt13 was GOOD in the morning choppy later in the day.
  • 70/7 heading west out of town was choppy from the Town of Lincoln Hall to where the trail comes out by the model home.  Better from there all the way out.  Later in the day from the heavy traffic was FAIR.
  • 10/13/3 through town is SNOW covered but very snirty at the crossings. Stayed SNOW covered.
  • 10/13 heading north was FAIR to GOOD.
    All in all lots of traffic.

More riding today.  Let you know in the morning.

Weather guys are forecasting Wintry Mix tomorrow so THINK COLD to get the temps down & START DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE.  Next SNOW is forecast Tuesday night with 1-3 forecast.  Then maybe another inch on Wednesday.

Worth repeating is that:

Sno-Eagles Country has 2 areas that have one-way trails.  10E is a one-way trail from the ERRA Sports Arena all the way out to Nicolet Mini Mart.  The other is the 13’s up near Buckatabon Bridge & Bauer’s Dam area.  Clearly marked with DO NOT ENTER signs.  Plus trail signs are backwards if you are going the wrong way.

EAGLE LAKE TRAIL & CATFISH LAKE TRAIL ARE MARKED & OPEN. Stay by the reflective orange barrels.  


See ya on the trails!
