TRAIL CONDITION REPORT
Temperatures will be in the low 30’s today and tomorrow and then back down in the teens and 20’s through the weekend.
The Gogebic Range Trail Authority Groomers Report:
All three groomers are down but they hope to have them up and running Thursday and Friday. The trails are in poor to fair condition now and they anticipate getting them in better shape for the weekend.
Lake Gogebic Groomer’s Report:
Temps will be a little warmer until Wednesday, and then cold sets in for the weekend. With the few inches of new snow and all trails groomed in the last 24 hours, the trails are in good condition. VERY IMPORTANT: Watch for the reroute where trails 1, 102 and 8 West meet, north of Merriweather going west for about 5 miles. Watch for changes and new signing. There will be many pipeline workers plus a lot of heavy equipment in the area. This reroute will continue to the end of the season. You may also want to top off your gas if headed north through this area as the reroute will add an extra ten miles (there and back) to your trip with no gas stops between Lake Gogebic and Silver City.
The Watersmeet Groomer’s report:
The warm weather will leave some rough trails, but temps will be back in the teens and twenties and will improve them. The groomers are out nightly. The trails are good and there is plenty of good riding left.
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.
