Manske Swamp aka 3 – has rough chunky areas

Wisconsin River Bridge aka 10W/13N – frozen but very icy under snow.  No regular grooming from the eastside trail & across bride due to conditions so expect rough & potential for soft spots.  West side section of trail much on Deep Lk Rd was recently groomed but is pretty rough.
