Had a terrific ride of 90 miles yesterday with AWSC Miss Snowflake, Erica Keehn, her dad & husband Tom. Here is were we rode:
Headed to town from our house on Trail 10E. Plenty of snow even on all the road trails. At Bloom Rd headed right taking the road to the Trig’s Shell Station to Tamarack St to “the grade” in town.
Straight ahead on 13 to the Eagle River Inn to meet Miss Snowflake & her dad. Then right back toward town on 13 to “the grade”. Snow covered but thin & snirty. Frozen slush behind the model homes.
Trail 13, “the grade” through Eagle River. Snow covered. Snirt at the road crossings. Thin out in the area I call the petrified forest (power poles). Pretty bumpy.
Took 13 to Trail 3 all the way to Conover. Made some great time was pretty smooth & snow covered. Crossed Hwy 45 picking up Corridor Trail 8.
Headed west on Trail 8 all the way to Stillwaters which wasn’t open yet so we turned around & headed to Trail 7. As we rode farther west there was much more snow. Good riding but bumpy.
Trail 7 was also loaded with snow as we head toward Vinchi’s. A couple of frozen hard slush spots. Some chop, but all in all good. Yep Vinchi’s was closed to so off toward Sayner & the Pub.
Headed back out of Sayner on Trail 7 to Trail 15 which was yes, wait for it…Excellent & groomed. Came into St. Germain on the east side & not through town. Along Hwy 155. Eventually picking up 70 heading toward Eagle River.
St. Germain part of Trail 70 that is road was snow covered & smooth. Connecting to Eagle River’s portion of Trail 70. It got thinner there with snirt in spots. After getting over the hill part & back into the wooded section along Hwy 70 much better. Past Eagle River Inn heading east was thin under the pine trees on the south side of the road. Section from Oak Rd into town was snirty & thin too. Real icy corners.
Back to town & east using Tamarack St. to the Trig’s Spur to Bloom Rd to Pine Rd to 10E & home.
For safety here are some important notices about the trails
TRAIL SECTION 10W/13N aka Wisconsin River Bridge is closed due high water conditions. DO NOT ENTER THIS AREA
High water/slush is also present on Trail 3 aka the Manske Swamp. Use extreme caution.
Section of Trail 10E from Bloom Rd to Loon Lake Rd has slush. Recommend taking City Trail on Tamarack St to Trigs Shell Trail to Bloom Rd.
The barrels have been pulled from both Catfish Lake Loop & Eagle Lake Trail. Advise not to ride. If you do it is at your own risk.
See Ya On The Trails!
