Your Online Trail and Travel Guide for Snowmobiling the U.S. & Canada

Trail Report – : Bayfield County, Wisconsin – February 2, 2022

Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 4 - 10 inches
Date of Report: February 2, 2022
Area Report:


Conditions across the county are varied. Not much for fresh snow so the best riding remains in the North Central part of the county. Those trails are in excellent condition. The rest of the county needs some fresh snow so our groomers can work their magic and get the trails in tip top shape. The trail to the casino is officially open which is great news. 


Some trouble spots to note: 

  • The Wally Polk Trail/Trail 40 near Port Wing and Herbster is closed. Flag road is a suitable re-route. 


Namakagon Trail Groomers: Our trails are holding steady with a 2-4″ base but a lot of them are ‘snirt” (snow & dirt). We’ve had very heavy traffic and haven’t received any new snow. We need snow!! Trails are mostly fair condition ~ some fair to good. And still having rocks exposed due to low snow conditions. 


Barnes Barnestormers: Barnes trails are still holding up, would rate as fair. Thin base, snirt and bare spots. We are still grooming, the cold weather has helped. 


Iron River: Iron River area trails 3 and 31 north of highway 2 are in very good shape. Trails 22, 24 and 31 south of Highway 2 are in nfairly good shape but are lacking snow. Trail 4 from tri-county corridor to Delta is ok shape but mocha colored with lots of dirt and leaves. Trail 4 from Delta to Mason in nice shape but lacks snow in the field portions 


Washburn Valhallers: Trails in the Vahalla area and north continue to be in excellent condition. We continue to groom two shifts a day six days a week. Trails out of Washburn are being groomed all week.  Trail 13, 33, 31 and 63 near the Valhalla area are holding up good with no bare spots.  Snow is thinning so some larger holes are not filling as easily.  Trail 13 into Washburn and Ashland is a bit thinner but still very ridable.  Warmer temps for the weekend should make another great riding weekend. 


South Shore: All south shore trails will be groomed by Wednesday and are fair to very 
good condition. Snow is thin by the lake.
