Reported By: Ken Jackson – Jackson’s Lakeside Cottages
Date of Report: 03/13/2014
Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: Ice Base of Several Inches
Area Report: The trails near roads and in town have taken a big beating and there are areas of exposed ground. The good news is that there are many miles of good trails in the woods that have been protected from the sun and can be used. Some locals are still riding and this coming weekend still offers opportunities for those who want to take one last blast in our area.

St. Germain, Wisconsin… the NUMBER ONE vacation spot in the North and the NUMBER ONE spot for snowmobiling fun. The unique little village of St. Germain is well known for its fine network of snowmobile trails. The local snowmobile club, the St.Germain Bo-Boen Tribe, has developed a trail marking system and engineered grooming equipment that is copied nationally and internationally. The Club owns three grooming machines, drags, and has built and maintains nearly 100 miles of well-marked trails that connect with their neighboring communities in Vilas and Oneida Counties. They are opened in early December depending on snow conditions.
