Snow Cover: 6-8 inches in most places. Fair to good Condition.
Date of Report: January 31, 2017
As is typical for this time of year, certain trail segments can be opened and others are not ready yet due to wetland crossings and/or have restrictions due to private land easements. It is critical that we respect the landowners who allow us to use their property. Please review the information below carefully before trail riding and confirm that you are using open trails.
Please note, in scattered areas the trail base is ice. Please exercise caution and operate at reduced speeds.
Trail Report 1/24/2017
All winter recreational trails are open at this time except for:
Tri-County Corridor was groomed from Amnicon Falls to Brule. All other trails are scheduled for grooming before 2-4-17. Will update as grooming occurs.
All winter use trails in this quadrant are open at this time.
We have received 4-5 inches of snow and the groomer will go out on Wednesday, 2-1, and Thursday, 2-2. Please use caution on all trails as we have not experienced a complete refreeze from last week’s warm spell and rain. A crew was out over the weekend and reports that the trails are passable. There are some wet spots on Trail 4-41 just before the warming shack. Will update trail reports as conditions change.
We received approximately 4 inches of snow on January 29-30th. The forecast is calling for cooler weather in the coming days. Most trails that were open prior to the melt will reopen. Trails 5, 5A, 925, and 9 from the groomer shed north to Moose Road are safe. Riders should be aware there are still swamps not completely frozen and ride with caution.
All trails are open.
