*Alt 13/3S to Three Lakes trails connect
*10E – that includes 9mile trail
*Trail 1 aka Gramp Graham – located off 10E starting at West Carpenter Lk Rd by Catch 22
*Trail 10/13 heading north from town to include the section that crosses Wisconsin River snowmobile bridge
*Most of the 13N trails that head up to the Bauers Dam Buckatabon Lake area
*Trail 3N aka Manske Swamp that is the cut across between 13N & 17N
*Trail 17N

Best way to learn the trails is to buy a Sno-Eagles trail map. It also had the entire Vilas county trails on the backside.  Plus download the GTS trails app  It is available at the App Store.

Very little change in trail conditions due to the current very cold weather.  There is a very hard base of 3+ inches with loose SNOW on top.  Next best bets for SNOW is next week.  No totals yet.  It’s the end of February & the day time temperatures will pop up which should bring on the SNOW.  With the end of February into March comes that evil sun that stays out long.  So trail conditions will change & soften up.  Stay tuned.  Get out & ride.

Please stay on the trails to keep the trails open.

Catfish & Eagle Lake trails are marked with orange reflective barrels.  Please stay by the barrels to be safe. Both are bumpy so might want to slow down. The lakes are marked by the businesses on the lake so stop in & thank them when you’re out riding.
