All lake trails in Oneida County remain closed and are considered unsafe until they have been
clearly marked by a local snowmobile club.
These trails will remain closed until conditions permit. Oneida County assumes no liability for the
safety of lake trails.
A few swampy areas around Rhinelander are impassable at this point. Club members have been busy packing the trails with sleds to help freeze up the soft /wet areas. Hopefully, with the colder temperatures in the forecast, the trails in the Rhinelander area can open soon.
Please join a local club. It takes a lot of time and effort to maintain the trail system.
