Caution Areas

17S from 17/7aka Paintball Field intersection to the Sugar Camp connect.  This area is improving as Club has been packing snow into the wet mushy areas to firm up. Rough sections

Section of 10/13 from Hwy G to Adams Rd – this area had water & mushy/muddy areas.  The Club is also working on this area packing snow in to firm up. Rough sections

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