Important trail cautions:
CLOSURE – Trl 17N closed from Trl 1 intersection to Columbus Rd. Use Trl 1
Heading south detoured to Hwy 17. Cross Hwy & take Trl 1 back to Eagle River

Trl 10W/13N heading north has a section between the “grade” & Adams Rd that has water & is very mushy/muddy.  Heading north recommend using Trail 17.  Heading south toward town recommend from 13 cutting across(left) Manske Swamp aka 3.

Wisconsin River Trail aka 10W/13N – frozen but shiny slippery ice – approaches not groomed & very rough

Loon Lk & Bloom Rds section of 10E (use City/Trig’s Trl to Bloom Rd) – not groomed very rough

Trail 17S from Trail 7 aka Paintball Field heading south to the Sugar Camp trails – not groomed very rough.  Midway down icy open spot. Room to go around.

Catfish & Eagle Lake Trails are NOT MARKED.  Good to stay off.  Sure there’s surface slush on top of the snow.

Riding today. Will have report of our ride tomorrow morning.

You did a great but…keep THINKING COLD & DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE!
