South Shore Trails Club

All South Shore trails are being groomed and are in great shape, with the exception of Trail 1 from Campbell Rd to Swedlund Rd. There is still some small brush on the sides of some trails.


Washburn Valhellers     

Washburn Area trails, including trail #13 South from Washburn to the tri-county corridor as well as 33/31/63 from Valhalla south (Moquah Spur) are in great shape with a lot of snow.  We will resume grooming on Thursday around the Valhalla area and will groom Trail #13 on Friday into Washburn and from Washburn to the Tri-County Corridor.  We are planning to re-groom 33/31/63 later Saturday evening. 


All the trails in the Valhalla/Bayfield area remain in excellent shape. Exception: trail 1 from Mountain Road to the trail 31 intersection. One pass was made from 31 to Mountain Road yesterday, Tuesday, with the drag. We need cold weather to freeze it up. We will not be grooming until Thursday evening to allow the snow to settle the water out so we don’t turn the hills to ice. Then we will be grooming two shifts through the weekend. Trail 1 could also use some light hand brushing through the swampy area on snowmobiles.

White River Ramblers    All trails are open and groomed. Trails are in great condition.
