Trail Conditions: Early Season
Snow Cover: A couple of inches
Date of Report: January 25, 2021
Oneida County Trails will open on Tuesday, January 26th. The couple of inches of fresh powder that was received over the weekend has given the county enough to open the trails. Nothing to sugar coat here….They are rideable, but they are early season conditions (hard to believe being the last week in January). As long as folks fully understand that, we can do the best we can with the conditions.
All of the groomers are out, trying to get everything panned out and set up prior to the opening. Will the trails hold up to a pounding of sleds this weekend, of course not. Can you go out and ride and find a mixed bag of conditions – definitely.
Early season conditions can mean: the forest roads and some fields will be the best. The swamps, and new trails, will be bumpy and have grass showing through.
Let’s be safe, and hope what is in the forecast for this weekend, happens.
