GTS Trails app shows groomers out in the last 24 hours
Trail Groomers were out again last night. ALL trails were groomed except Club Trail Uncle Kent’s which is a deadend spur off of Trail 10W
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.
The traffic on all trails has been very very heavy. So as you riding be sure to Ride Right – Stay Right. Rode again just a short about 30 ride here what we saw.
Heading out from our house on 10E toward Eagle River. Trail 10E was very rough. Rode 4 miles to the 10E/1 intersection. Took 1 toward Chanticleer Inn & south entrance to Eagle Lake trail. It too was very rough with moguls. Both were groomed over night so should be in better shape. Eagle Lake drifted over early in the season & is bumpy. Trail 1N was snirty with blow out in the corners. 1 to the 17N intersection heading north & west to Hwy 45N crossing. 17N was snow covered, but both 1N & 17N were also rough & bumpy. These trails were also groomed overnight so should be better. From there headed south on 17 toward town. Lunch at Buckshots. Then to town. Trail 17 to town was much better. In town trail 10/13 was in VERY GOOD shape with plenty of SNOW. The grade heading south (alt13/3S) was SNOW filled & VERY GOOD a little bumpy due to heavy traffic. 10E between Loon Lake Rd to Bloom Rd was rough. It is also thin & grainy for most of that section. From Pine Ln & Taylor Lk intersection went right & took the Catfish Lk Loop road trail to Catfish Lake Trail. Lake trail had drifted SNOW so it was rough. Came out at 12 Pines & back onto 10E going east. 10E from there was very rough & bumpy. Groomed overnight & should be better.
Please stay on the trails to keep them trails open. Lots of off trail riding is causing a lot of problems. Trails will close if riders keep this up. Done preaching.
Catfish & Eagle Lake trails are marked with orange reflective barrels. The lakes are marked by the businesses on the lake so stop in & thank them when you’re out riding.
