Trail Report: Ashland County
Reported By: Ashland Area Chamber of Commerce
Date of Report: 02/19/2016
Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 3-12 inches
Area Report: The snowmobile trails throughout Ashland County are OPEN, groomed and in good condition.
Despite warm weather the last two days, groomers report the trails still have decent snow cover with no bare spots at this time. They will hold off on grooming for the moment so as to preserve trail integrity as much as possible.
As long as the area doesn’t receive very much rain, the trails should remain rideable for the coming weekend. However, snowmobilers are urged to be extremely careful and exercise due caution as the trails will be very slick.
The Tri-County Recreational Corridor from Ashland west to Superior is being groomed at least three times a week and is also in good shape for riding.
NOTE: A temporary detour route has been posted on Trail 9 from Ashland to Sanborn.
The Tri-County Recreational Corridor, a 62-mile stretch of abandoned railroad right-of-way running from Ashland to Superior, is always OPEN in the winter.
Reminder: There is NO snowmobiling allowed from Ashland to Bad River/Odanah as snowmobiling is not permitted on reservation land. However, snowmobiling is allowed from Bad River east to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
