Trail Report: Bayfield County
Reported By: Sue
Date of Report: 01/20/2016
Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 6-18 inches
Area Report: With cold and new snow this is the first time an actual base has been established so trails are best so far this season.
The trails in and around Barnes are being groomed and are in fair to good condition. Use caution Trail #31 N. Trail #31S beyond the Ounce River bridge to the Sawyer county line has not been groomed due to unfrozen wetlands.
In Drummond, all trails are open and will be freshly groomed by Friday except for #63 across the Bibon Swamp. That section is passable by sled but not groomer.
In the Cable area, all of the trails are being groomed and are in fair to good condition, flat with a few thin spots.
In the Mason area, Trail #4 is closed from Horstman Road to Mason, and Trail #63 is closed from Bibon Road to the Tri-County Corridor. Coming from the south, you can take the new Trail #4 EAST of Mason to connect to Trail #9 in Ashland County which will bring you to the Tri-County Corridor. From Grand View, take Trail #63 north to Bibon Road. Cross over Bibon Road onto Wilson Road. Take Wilson Road north to Highway 63. Cross Highway 63 onto Brown Road and then follow the trail signs to Trail #9 in Ashland County. Take Trail #9 north to the Tri-County Corridor.
In the Iron River area, all trails around Iron River are being groomed including the Tri County Corridor.
In the Herbster area, grooming is ongoing. Trail #1 between Highway 13 and Lenawee Road is open but will be plowed for the rest of the season. West of Herbster, trail #1 will be groomed from Port Wing to the Iron River bridge on Highway 13 west of Port Wing. The portion of trail #1 from Port Wing east towards Herbster will be open but mostly UNGROOMED due to ice and high water in the Flag River bottoms. Grooming east of Port Wing in that area will begin as soon as ice conditions permit.
In the Bayfield area, Trail #1 is open to Legendary Waters.
