Rode yesterday on the way to a 3 day sledding trip to eastern Wisconsin. Headed from our house on trail 10 east of Eagle River into town. While not groomed the trail was GOOD. This includes Bloom Rd to Loon Lake Rd. Too “the grade” to town. It has traffic type bumps. Met the rest of the group on 10/13 by the historic railroad depot. From there headed north on 10/13 all the way to the connect with Conover trail 3N. Trails were GOOD. Conover trail 3N was EXCELLENT. 3N to 8 to 6 all were EXCELLENT. Phelps trail 6 heading east was GOOD to VERY GOOD for the first half. Closer to town trails were GOOD to FAIR. Entered Three Lakes/Brule Trails which were fantastic & EXCELLENT all the way to the connect to the Blue Ox trails in Florence county. 6 to the White Tail Inn was GOOD. Best I’ve seen in a while for that section. From White Tail Inn to Florence trails were a mixed bag. Mostly GOOD but there was one swamp section that was POOR and a few sections with riding chop. Coming into Florence roads & street were nearly bare of SNOW. Headquarters are the Doll House Bed & Breakfast. More tomorrow on day 2 of our 13 sled adventure.
THINK COLD & KEEP DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE!!! P.S. No evil sun either!!
See you on the trails!
