More light SNOW yesterday along with more Lake Effect Snow. This with cold days & nights is terrific! Building SNOW makes for great trail conditions. Most trails are in GOOD CONDITION. It’s Thursday & traffic is light. Good time to ride. New to the area? Contact Sno-Eagles President, Howard Wolf. Club has Wednesday & Thursday rides. 262.442.4876.
There is ice under the SNOW on the trails not just in the corners. At road crossings saw some areas with snirt. The roads are sanded & sleds carry that sand up onto the trail for a short distance. Have reports of a few bumpy areas. Groomers are working on those areas.
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. So heading out east you are on the south side of the road. Heading back into town heading west you are on the north side of the road. The other is the 13’s up near Buckatabon Bridge & Bauer’s Dam area. Clearly marked with DO NOT ENTER signs. This can be dangerous.
EAGLE LAKE TRAIL & CATFISH LAKE TRAIL ARE MARKED & OPEN. Stay by the reflective orange barrels. Do not drift away from the barrels as it is not safe to do so. Remember not all lakes have trails so if you don’t see marker do not ride on it to be safe. These are the only 2 lakes that are marked in Sno-Eagles Country. No other lake trails.
Also there is a dusk to dawn speed limit of 55 MPH.
***FOREST COUNTY TRAILS OPEN AT NOON TODAY.
