Attention riders:

On trail 18 south between the Chippewa Flowage and trail 21 there is a gate on the tribal owned campsite. Attempts to get it open have not been successful at this time, the club is currently still working on but do not have authority to open. Until then the trail is closed so please reroute if traveling south past the dam on trail 18 to 12 south. Or if coming north on trail 6 from the Tuscobia stay on 6 up the river towards Deer Run and stay on 18 on the Flowage or if going north towards Moose Lake stay on 6 to 12.

First pass on 8w to Washburn County, and 31N to Bayfield County is groomed. 31 north of Seeley Fire Lane is passable but not ideal as it has been rutted from logging trucks.

5 south to Rusk County line has been groomed.

Trail 9 is groomed as of this morning to the Oasis. The Tuscobia is groomed from the 9 mile loop to Winter.

If you are riding in the Winter area please ride with caution on trail 5 both from Hwy 70 to Blaisdell Lake Rd. The swamp is not strong enough to hold a groomer quite yet so this portion has not been groomed. The trail from Blaisdell Lake Rd to Trap n Fish and Hwy 70 north to the swamp area has been groomed. The temps are cold today will hold there through the weekend so the swamp should freeze more to withstand the groomer over the weekend.

A reminder for the upcoming weekend:  The annual “Tuscobia Winter Ultra” non motorized marathon is this coming weekend. Starting at 6am Friday, December 31 and ending at 6pm January 2nd, hikers, skiers and fat tire bicyclists will be on the Tuscobia 24/7 from Rice Lake to Park Falls. They will be departing at different times. If anyone is using the Tuscobia with their snowmobile please be courteous and slow down when meeting or passing anyone.
