It’s Thursday & the Sno-Eagles Guided Trail Ride. All are welcome to ride. Meet at 9am at the Historic Railroad Depot trail 10/13 in town. Across from Friendship House.
Yesterday was day 2 of the Sno-Eagles Weekday Away in Florence. We left The Doll House Bed & Breakfast at 9:30 am heading through the town of Florence making our way to the Blue Ox Snowmobile Club trail F2. Took F2 south to F5 which heads west & then south to where it connects to trail F4. Riding that all the way into Long Lake for lunch at the Roadhouse which is along Hwy 139. The trails were EXCELLENT & very smooth except 1 section of what appeared to have been a swamp. Mile at most. All of the trails were covered with SNOW. Some sections were icy underneath causing a little darting. Met 2 Blue Ox groomers.
After lunch we head north on corridor 7 aka the Nicolet ATV/Snowobile trail to corridor 6 which heads east of corridor 7. 7 is a heavily ridden trail & some minor chop. Corridor 6 was ExCELLENT with the exception of one swamp section that frozen & rough. Rode that all the way back to Florence.
Today we head back to Eagle River led by our leader, Iron man Ron.
THINK COLD & KEEP DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE!!! P.S. No evil sun either!!
See you on the trails!
