Trail Conditions: Open
Snow Cover: 8" +
Date of Report: December 23, 2022
The Vilas and Oneida county trails officially opened this morning (Dec 23) at 8:00! All of the Barnstormer trails have been freshly panned and have since had sub zero temps to help them set up. Even with the good snow we got last week, it all panned down to just a 2″ base. So, we’ll be needing more wet snow to build this up more. The 6″ we got two nights ago was just dry fluff & not much help.
There are early season riding conditions. There has not been enough snow to fill some of the ruts, so be prepared for those bumps. Expected high winds over the next couple of days could bring down more trees. If you are so inclined, it wouldn’t hurt to bring a chain saw or some loppers along on your ride!
Ice conditions still vary, so please DO NOT cross any lake that isn’t marked!
TRAIL CLOSURE NOTICE: Due to ongoing logging operations, the Barnstormer’s trail #51 is CLOSED between TIN 344 and 353! DO NOT RIDE THIS SECTION OF TRAIL!
