Trail Conditions: Early Season
Snow Cover: 16" - 24"
Date of Report: December 4, 2019
Snowfalls from the past week have left our area with up to 24″ of snow in many places, however, many trails remain CLOSED to snowmobile traffic at this time until the clubs can get out there and properly groom and prepare the trails for use. The clubs and the Douglas County Forestry Department are actively working on preparing and inspecting trails for safe frozen conditions in wet areas, removal of any deadfalls, and proper signing before opening. PLEASE do not use the trails and do not trespass on private property. It just takes one owner to deny the use of their land for a trail to be permanently shut down, so please be courteous and wait for the trails to officially open.
The following all-season trails are currently open to ATV, UTV, and Snowmobiles:
Saunders Grade Trail*
Gandy Dancer Trail
Tri-County Corridor Trail
Wild Rivers Trail
* Please note – The Saunders is still closed from County Road C to the Minnesota state line. The Douglas County Forestry Department is working to get these sections repaired and opened as soon as possible.
Cross Country Trails (As of 12/4/2019)
All trails under Douglas County Forestry management, City of Superior management, State Parks, and Brule River State Forest are closed at this time. Crews are currently working on packing, grooming and tracking trails after the major snow event. We will let you know as soon as the trails begin opening.
