Trail Report: Superior – Douglas County
Reported By: Superior-Douglas County Visitors Bureau
Date of Report: 02/02/2016
Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: 6-8″
Area Report: As is typical for this time of year, certain trail segments can be opened and others are not ready yet due to wetland crossings and/or have restrictions due to private land easements. It is critical that we respect the landowners who allow us to use their property… please review the information below carefully before trail riding and confirm that you are using open trails. Please note that on certain trails only segments of that trail may be open at this time. We anticipate frequent updates as the clubs report in with trails they have checked. In all areas where the winter recreational trails are closed the clubs are actively working on the getting the trails open.

Snow levels are a little skimpier in the NW portion of our area.

Most BRR trails took a bit of a beating again last weekend with the high traffic, and warm weather. All trails except 35, 235 and 635 have been groomed since the weekend.
Trail 35 and the south/western portion of 235 are scheduled to be groomed Wednesday.
