Trails were in great shape yesterday.  Took a short 50 miles ride starting about 6 miles east of Eagle River heading west on the one way trail into toward Eagle River. 

  • 10E Trail is on the north side of Hwy 70 going west.  There were 2 areas of burn through under the pines near Catfish Lake Rd otherwise rest was GOOD condition. 
  • 10E/13 intersection headed to town on “the grade”. The 1 mile to town was VERY GOOD. 
  • Headed west on combo trail 70W/17/7/13 which was GOOD. 
  • Rode all the way to the 17/7/13 intersection near the Honey Bear. GOOD  Left & crossed Hwy 70. 
  • The entire trail to the Sugar Camp connect was in GOOD to VERY GOOD shape with some chop. 
  • Rode back up to 7 & headed west.  This section was GOOD with some chop. 
  • After crossing Hwy H turned right on Sugar Camp trail that runs in woods to “highline trails” it was VERY GOOD to EXCELLENT. 
  • Picked up Sugar Camp 70AE that comes out by the Kathan Inn.  It was SNOW loaded & smooth. Back toward Eagle River on 7 to 17/7/13 intersection.  Left toward town. 
  • At intersection took 70W to the St. Germain BoBoen connect.  Trail had all conditions from FAIR to GOOD.  Some burn through on the 2 high plateaus high up across hwy from WI River.  Back to town
  • 10E on south side of hwy 70 was in GOOD shape all the way home

Please stay on the trails. 

Catfish & Eagle Lake trails are marked with orange reflective barrels.  Deep surface slush on both lakes. Plus some ice fishing holes near the trail.

Eagle River has long held the distinction of SNOWMOBILE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD, and it’s a matter of pride that causes local clubs and businesses to work so diligently to maintain that title. Snowmobile fever becomes a way of life in our Eagle River winters, and the talk often turns to “picks”, “carbides” and performance. In fact, these snow machines seem to outnumber cars during the winter months.

Over 500 MILES OF GROOMED TRAILS connect the communities of the area, including access to major county and state routes. Trails wind throughout the area’s scenic forests, but frequently pass close to service businesses which can provide you with fuel and sustenance, shelter and refreshment. If you don’t have your own snowmobile, several dealerships will be happy to provide you with equipment during your visit.
