Conditions- Early Season
We continue to get out and work on trails, but as of today we are not able to open any additional trails. We had light traffic over the weekend which helped pack and freeze some trails. Trail 17 (the grade) remains in good condition and is still being groomed. Most riders headed north and found good riding around Hurley, but marginal riding to the west and east. We do expect the Flowage to be marked soon and we will update everyone as soon as that happens. At this point let’s all hope for more snow, but if you want to get out and do a little riding the opportunity is there.
An updated report this Thursday morning from Forestry regarding trails that are open today:
Mercer area: Trail 17 from Hwy 51 (Lazy Aces) north to Hurley.
Hurley area: Trail 17
Trail 8 from Cty G to West Branch Rd
Trail 2 & 2A
Trail 13 to Island Lake Rd
Trail 15 Hogsback to Island Lake Rd
The remaining trails are closed due to low snow and/or wet conditions. The Snowmobile Clubs will be assessing trail conditions on a daily basis and will open them on a trail by trail basis notifying the Forestry Department and Chambers of Commerce of the changes. Early riding conditions exist and water crossings are not considered safe. Please use caution!!
