Date of Report: 01/05/2015
Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: 0-8 inches
Area Report: Bayfield County Snowmobile trails are officially open; however, snow conditions are poor. Grooming operations are limited until we receive more snow and colder temperatures.
Trail #1 and #31 to Bayfield is closed until further notice. There is no access into or out of Bayfield at this time due to an unsafe water crossing. Signs have been posted at the intersection of Trail #1 and #31 (east of Echo Valley), Compton Road and Weidinger Road. Riders should obey all signs and use road routes when necessary.
Trail #63 is closed from County Highway E to Bibon Road. Trail closed signs will be posted. Riders should obey all signs and follow signed trails and road routes when necessary. County Highway E is NOT a signed road route and access to the Town of Mason from the west is limited.
Trail #1 is open to Cornucopia, but a portion is closed from Echo Valley Road to Henkens Road. Riders should follow re-route signs and use Echo Valley, Echo Valley Gravel Pit and Henkens Road as connection routes.
There will be logging activity on Trail #1 north of Mountain Road and on Trail #31 near the Sawyer County line. Riders should use extra caution while traveling in these areas.
Please stay on the designated trails and routes. Changes to the trail system are marked with signage on the trails, so when in doubt, follow the signs. There are new trail maps available. Please contact the Bayfield County Tourism Office at 715-373-6125 to get yourself a copy today.
