Trail Report: Manitowish Waters
Reported By: Barry Hopkins
Date of Report: 12/29/2014
Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 12″ – 18″ +
Area Report: IT FINALLY FEELS LIKE WINTER!!! Temps fell to -10 last night and the high for the next 3 days is only going to be 9, with lows in the -10 range. What does this mean? The wet swampy areas will be freezing solid this week!!! The Sno Skeeters with cooperation from the Town of MW and Vilas County, rerouted a short section of trail 6 to access trail #2 on Sat. This is clearly marked. Trail 2 & 8 to Booulder Jct are in great shape. Great riding from MW is still to Boulder, Arbor VItae areas. You can get north to Mercer by using Trail 19-A to trail 19 to trail 10 past Beaver Lodge. Stop in an area business and grab a trail map and get some advice before you ride if you have any questions. I would avoid riding to Mercer on trail #8, you will encounter wet areas just past the 2nd highway crossing in the Mercer System. This should all be good by Wednesday. Keep posted as I will update as things change.
