Trail Report: Bayfield County
Reported By: Sue
Date of Report: 01/25/2016
Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 6-20 inches
Area Report: The trails in and around Barnes have an excellent base. Use caution on Trail #31 N. Trail #31S has been groomed to Mulligan Creek / Ounce River Crossing, but from there to the Sawyer county line is still ungroomed due to the wet land crossing conditions. The signs for the re-route due to logging will be corrected to mark the correct trail to use. Downed trees and brush will be removed. Use caution in these areas.
In the Iron River area the only issue is logging on trail #40 at Lenawee Rd south of Herbster.
The Washburn / Bayfield area still has some low hanging brush on Trail #1 from Mountain Rd. to Henkens Rd. The trail to Legendary Waters Casino is open.
In the South Shore area, Trail #1 from the Highway 13 bridge west of Port Wing to Touve Rd. east of Port Wing is groomed but is less than “good” due to the lack of snow. Rough ground and frozen ruts are good reasons to exercise caution.
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.
