Trail Report: Hayward / Sawyer County
Reported By: Hayward Lakes Visitors & Convention Bureau
Date of Report: 12/23/2014
Trail Conditions: Unknown
Snow Cover: 3 to 5 inches of snow
Area Report: All Sawyer County Trails are officially open! However, their condition is poor as we need to build up our base again, but the good news is we’re moving in the right direction with the couple of inches of fresh snow we received in the last 2 days and the cold has returned to makes things solid again. Also good news is the Christmas forecast looks to be bringing us our Christmas wish of heavy snow! Sunday it rained in central part of Wisconsin, but Hayward Area was lucky and received 2 inches of wet snow.
Again, the cool temps are great for freezing our lakes and wetlands and our crews have been busy staking lakes. The following lakes have a good 12 inches or more of ice; Lost Land Lake, Tiger Cat Flowage, Round Lake, Little Round, Nelson, Ospry, Grindstone, Whitefish, Sand Lake and LCO. Several more lakes are scheduled to be staked soon and we will update as soon as those are completed. Remember to always use caution on the lakes and stay on the marked trails. Some lakes have ice heaves on them.
As many know September 4th brought quite a storm to our area and many trees were lost. Crews of volunteers have been working hard on cleaning up debris and down trees but have had some obstacles and delays accessing heavy damage due to soft trails. Please note the following trails that do have trees down; Trail #5 North of highway 70 to Wolfs Eagle Lodge, Trail #18 and #12 North of highway B to Trap and Fish and Trail #6 north of Polish Road to Dam Road. As mentioned the cold has returned and made things solid again and the crews are working hard to clear those trails. More updates to come. And a big thanks to the clubs and volunteers for their hard work so we can enjoy the beautiful trails! They are always looking for more help and volunteers, any questions about how to help and where to sign up give us a call!
Don’t forget ATV trails are also open and great for riding!
GET OUT THERE AND HAVE SOME FUN!!
