Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: Minimal
Date of Report: January 26, 2021
We’ve got some good news to report! The Oneida county trail system is opening at noon today (1/26/2021). Their lake routes remain closed until they are clearly marked and trails are considered to be in rough, early season condition. Please get out and support all of those establishments that have been waiting so long for this opening.
The Barnstormers have been grooming on a regular basis and I’m happy to report that the majority of our system is in good condition. There are still a few select areas that remain rough due to lack of snow, especially near logging operations, but overall we’re in pretty good shape. Reports from riders we’ve talked with have been very positive.
- Logging operations are continuing throughout the northwoods and in many areas where snowmobile trails are located. Loggers have first priority! PLEASE be respectful of them and make every attempt to stay out of their way. DO NOT engage with them. Loggers have a legal right to close any snowmobile trail where they are working. They are being cooperative with the clubs and working with us the best they can. PLEASE do not give them reason to close the trails.
- The trail base remains thin. Be prepared for some scraping, rocks, and ruts.
- Hintz’s North Star Lodge is currently closed. Therefore, we have closed the trail leading to their establishment. If and when they are open for business, we will reopen that trail. Please respect them by not riding across their property.
Thank you for your patience and support while we await more snow. Ride Right and Stay Safe!
