All conditions -Best Riding North & East

The temp roller coaster ride continues.  Best news is it is going below freezing overnight & will throughout this week.  Next SNOW Monday night into Tuesday.  An inch or 2.

Best Riding is North & East.  The work done in December paid off.   The ice base is holding on most of the trails.  Still SNOW cover especially North & East. Trail 10/13 heading out of Eagle River is a good ride.   After crossing the Wisconsin River Bridge trail section the 2 trails split.   Trail 13 heading aka the Bauers is a good choice.  Trail 17N that splits off of Trail 10/13 & head north on the east side of Hwy 45N is another choice.  A bit thin in a short section just before the Trail 3N aka Manske Swamp. 

As for east it Trail 10E.  Heading south to split of 10E & Trail Alt 13S.  10E & heading to  Three Lakes OR Alt 13S to Three Lakes. 

As for west if not bad either.

Very early this morning(3am ish) groomers out .  Trail 10/13 south heading to Trail Alt13S to Loon Lk Rd.  Trail 10/13 north to Conover connect.

Eagle & Catfish Lake trails are open & marked & still safe.  Expect slippery riding & some surface slush from melted SNOW.  Always stay by the orange reflective barrels to be safe.

Please no off trail riding.  If you see orange fencing please follow the trail.

Day 3 of the Vintage World Championship Race!  Trail 10/13 goes right by!!
