Caution Area

17S from 17/7aka Paintball Field intersection to the Sugar Camp connect.  This area is improving as Club has been packing snow into the wet mushy areas to firm up. Several rough & mushy sections.  Was groomed in last 24 hours.

Section of 10/13 from Hwy G to Adams Rd – this area had water & mushy/muddy areas.  The Club is also working on this area packing snow in to firm up. Rough sections. Was groomed in last 24 hours.

Wisconsin River Bridge aka 10W/13N – frozen but very icy under snow.  No regular grooming from the eastside trail & across bridge due to conditions so expect rough & potential for soft spots.  West side section of trail much on Deep Lk Rd was recently groomed but is pretty rough.

Catfish & Eagle Lake Trails are NOT MARKED.  Please stay off.  A group is checking periodically for ice depth & slush.  Stay tuned. 


Bus week with no riding.  Riding tomorrow! See you on this trails!
