Trails Good to Fair
January 22 2019 6:30am – 17 degrees & the forecast high for today.
The 1-4 inches of SNOW forecast turned into may 1-2 inches. So I guess those weather guys sort of got it right. Chance of a little more around lunch time. Are you DANCIN’?
Little change on the report. Not sure on grooming overnight. Best riding is still heading east, northeast, north, far northwest, south & southeast.
The trails heading west (70/7) are thin on SNOW so hard for the groomers to correct trail conditions. If you ride west try dropping down to the Trail 7 aka Paint Ball Field. Try the alternate 70’s as you get out farther. The section on the high hill across from the Wisconsin River is icy & very thin.
There is snirt at the road crossings. Plenty of sanding has been done on the roads due to the icy conditions. Same for many road trails. It is icy underneath everywhere so slow down.
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. 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.
Dusk to dawn speed limit of 55 MPH.
Continue DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE & THINK COLD!
See ya on the trails!
