Lake Gogebic Groomer’s Report:
All trails are improving with the exception of trail 102. Please avoid this trail there is quite a bit of water back in this area. Drivers will be installing a culvert on this trail to help with our water problem. Groomers are doing the best that they can with what they have to work with so please be patient.
The Watersmeet Groomer’s report:
Groomers are running daily and the trails are in very good condition. Not much more to say than that! Ride right, ride safe!!
Please follow the orange barrels and stay on trail going across Cisco Chain.
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.
