Trail Report For: Minocqua
Reported By: Tom Bird
Date of Report: 03/03/2016
Trail Conditions: Poor
Snow Cover: 6″
Area Report: Cross Country Cruisers trails are in poor condition. Last weekend’s warm weather and rain did plenty of damage to our trails. Even though it has been below freezing this week we have not received any significant new snow to rebuild the trails. The trails in the woods are ridable but are very icy and you will encounter some bar spots. There is some utility construction taking place on trail 11 so use extra caution when in that area. There is some light snow in the forecast for Friday night that may help the conditions some, but we will not resume our grooming operations unless we receive some measurable snow. We will keep an eye on the weather and keep you posted if there are any significant changes.
News & Events:
The Magic of Winter – Sled the Vast, White Northland
Thanks to the hard work of our many snowmobile clubs and volunteers, an extensive network of professionally groomed trails – more than 1600 miles – are maintained. A magnificent natural environment with 1300 glacial lakes and 233,000 acres of public forest lands provide a perfect setting for snowmobilers in the Minocqua – Arbor Vitae – Woodruff Area. Take off in any direction to sled on the spacious and well marked routes throughout the forests. The locale features a number of trail side pit stops – step inside, enjoy the atmosphere, but please be responsible. Don’t drink and drive !
