Trails Good to Fair
January 23 2019 6:15am – 13 degrees – High of 20
Total SNOW on the east side of Eagle River is 3 inches. A little less in town. All trails covered with fresh SNOW. Really improving conditions. Most trails are in Good shape this morning. Over night grooming.
The freezer door is closed so the temps did come up & it’s overcast. Great time to ride!! 20’s yesterday with continue today. Thursday looks to be in the low teens. Then the deep freeze returns on Friday with a high of 3 below & double digit below at night for the next week.
Little or no problem areas to report. “The grade” Trail 13/3 in town is in good shape and so are other open areas. Little or no sun is a good thing. West could still use more SNOW but still not bad with the new cover. Expect the high hill trail on 70W across from the Wisconsin River to thin out as the traffic increases. Trail 10E between Loon Lk Rd. & Bloom Lk Rd could use more SNOW. After that section 10E really improves all the way out. Same with heading north & west.
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. 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.
Are you DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE?
See ya on the trails!
