TRAIL CONDITION REPORT
Looks like we will be dealing with temps in the low 30’s until Friday. After Friday, temps will drop to the teens during the day and single digits at night. With these temps the weekend will be a bit more promising for riding. We will keep you updated.
The Gogebic Range Trail Authority Report:
Trail 2 between Marenisco and Korpela Road has a two mile detour TFN due to a bridge washout. The rest of Trail 2 was groomed today and is in fair condition. Trail 8 to Tuula was groomed Tuesday and is in good condition. Trail 160 is Fair with many wet spots and be alert for logging operations. Trail 11 South is closed for the season due to logging.
Lake Gogebic Groomer’s Report:
Conditions are once again too warm for grooming, at least during the daytime hours. We did get a few more inches of new snow and more is in the forecast along with colder temps for the weekend. Watch for a change on trail 1 South from Rd. 8800 to Marenisco soon. We’ve been encountering more water problems in this area and hope to reroute…just watch for signs.
The Watersmeet Groomer’s report:
Groomers report conditions are good with a few fair areas where there are wet spots on Trail 2 West and 13 South, but you are able to get around these problem areas. Please ride with caution..
Please remember groomers are out both day and night, so watch for them, Please pull over or at least slow down and wait for the operator to signal you by whenever you see them. Groomers have the right of way.
JUST ONE MORE REMINDER: PLEASE STAY ON MARKED TRAILS. RIDING ON UNMARKED TRAILS CAN RESULT IN THE CLUBS LOSING EASEMENT FOR THAT TRAIL AND IT CAN ALSO RESULT IN A POSSIBLE TICKET FOR YOU.
