Trails are on average FAIR. With that said there are all conditions out on the trails & the conditions change quickly. Whether riding north, south, east or west sections are GOOD particularly in the undercover areas & south side of road trails. POOR in the wide open area due to the evil sun. FAIR in the rest. Early morning & late evening there are icy conditions in corners. Corners also have blow outs. I call it ADVENTURE SLEDDING.
Groomer Tracking Systems (GTS) shows groomers back out grooming last night.
One Heading SOUTH through town past the Ice Castle grooming Trail Alt 13 south to the Three Lakes Trail connect.
Another groomer headed NORTH on Trails 10/13, these 2 trails run on the same section together all the way to the Conover Trail connect. Then headed west on 10/13 across the section that crosses the Wisconsin River bridge heading west. After crossing the bridge & at the Trail 10/13 intersection grooming Trail 10W & the Uncle Kent club trail.
On the way back from grooming the NORTH section trails groomers turned onto Trail 3 aka Manske that head east & connects to Trail 17N & Trail 1. Trail 1 takes you to the Eagle Lake Boat launch on the northside of Eagle Lake. Turned around & head back on Trail 1 to the 17N connect & back to the to the Groomer Barn.
To help you out the the location of these trail pick up a paper trail map or use the GTS tracker or the MapIt Vilas County app. A link to the download either is below.
The Clubs of Vilas County work very hard to secure easements from private landowners & folks we are losing many due to off trail riding. So PLEASE NO OFF TRAIL RIDING.
Catfish & Eagle lake trails marked & OPEN. Stay by the orange reflective barrels. Surface slush with the sun is possible. DO NOT think the entire lake is safe.
Please KEEP DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE! And THINK COLD would be good too!
See ya on the Trails!
