Trail Report: Ashland County
Reported By: Ashland Area Chamber of Commerce
Date of Report: 03/01/2016
Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: 4-10 inches
Area Report: The snowmobile trails throughout Ashland County are OPEN, groomed and in fair condition.
Grooming operations continue with groomers reporting that the trails are in fair shape. The snow cover in some areas is thin, but all trails are still rideable.
Snowmobilers are urged to be extremely careful and exercise due caution as the trails are 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 decent 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.
