Trails in Eagle River & All of Vilas County CLOSED

Good morning. Trails are still closed in the Eagle River area & all of Vilas County. Temps still bouncing up & down. 24 overnight with a high of 43. A schiff of SNOW on the ground, which is finally freezing up. So you know what you need to do…….THINK COLD. Getting COLD over night but still getting too warm during the day. Then we can start doing the SNOW DANCE.

Vilas County Forestry, Recreation & Land department trail inspections continue. Don continues his inspections everyday It will take this week & part of next week to complete inspections for all 11 clubs.

Swamps & wet areas are beginning to freeze up but we sure could use some frigid cold weather. Then SNOW!  Right now Vilas county we are still in deer hunts. So the trails cannot open until all hunts are done & SNOW & TRAIL CONDITION PERMIT. The 9 day season is done.  The 10 muzzleloader season ends at dusk today.  Then one more hunt.  The 4 day antlerless hunt which ends on Sunday, December 12. 

Trail 13 that heads west of Eagle River has a re route in the section that comes out on Oak Lane by the Pine Gables Restaurant.  There is new construction going on so the club has done a temporary move over of the trail.  The club is working with the Vilas Forestry, Recreation and Land department to complete the permanent re route which will be in place for the 2021-2022 season.  If you are familiar with that trail rather than the 2 corners at the west end by Oak Lane it will go straight ahead.

Also the lake spur off of the Eagle Lake Trail that take you to Eagle Waters Resort is back open!!!  The own Laura Koranda & adjacent landowners worked hard to have this happen!

It won’t be long now!  Can’t wait to see ya all out on the trails!
