Trail Report: Eagle River

Reported By: hollyt

Date of Report: 01/13/2016

Trail Conditions: Early Season

Snow Cover: 6 at best

Area Report:

VILAS COUNTY SNOWMOBILE TRAILS OPEN
TRAILS REMAIN IN VERY EARLY RIDING CONDITION
RATING FROM FAIR TO POOR

Trail conditions are still in Early Riding.  On average FAIR condition.  Trail 3 heading north out of Eagle River; Alternate Trail 13S leaving Eagle River; Trail 10E from the turn off of Trail 13S to the one ways & then again past Nobbe’s North and Trail 1S that connects to 10E are trails in GOOD shape.  Found very little not snow covered trails.  With the cold it has become icy.  2 inches of snow by the end of the day yesterday will make them slippery.

We are not grooming the Sno-Eagles section of Alternate Trail 13S so as to not break anything up until it is frozen tight. Also not grooming Trail 10/13 aka Wisconsin River Bridge for the same reason.  Do not want to break anything up with the weight of the groomer. Plus 1N is not groomed as it is technically not open as it leads to Eagle Lake & the lake is not open.

Wednesday & Thursday are Sno-Eagles Trail Rides.  Meet at 9am on Trail 13 in town by the Railroad Depot & Friendship House. Lunch on your own.

As you ride if you find a problem please call Trail Boss Tom at 715.617.0917 OR 715.617.4708 to report.

Here are some tips for riding on our trails:

  • Both Lakes Trails are stilled CLOSED & NOT MARKED. We are checking ice depths.  The cold weather should help with the ice making.

    Eagle Lake – Trail 1N is gated at Town Hall Rd.  We are not grooming 1N because the Lake is not open.

    Catfish Lake proper is closed.  The trail leading to Braywood coming from the west is open.  The trail leading to 12 Pines coming from the east is open. Bloom Rd to Spruce Rd-the spur off of Trail 10 is also open to Lumpy’s.  The roads are snow covered.

These are conditions in Sno-Eagles Country not all of Vilas County.
