EAGLE RIVER TRAILS
Trails Good but still very icy underneath
Trails are a mixed bag as the evil sun was out yesterday. The end of February into March brings days where the sun is out longer. Going to SNOW today cloudy most of the day. Forecast is for 2-4 inches.
Wasn’t able to ride yesterday. Spoke to a couple that did ride yesterday. Took Trail 10/13 south out of town riding Alt 13S to Three Lakes. In Three Lakes took TL 11 to TL 5 north which connects to the 9Mile trail that intersects with Eagle River 10 that heads west into Eagle River. Reported Alt 13S was in “great shape”. 10 had some burn through from the sun. That section is on the north side of the road. Then rode through town on 10/13 heading north & picked up 17N to Phelps which they said was “in fabulous shape”!
Touch up grooming last night with the groomer leaving the barn on Trail 10W/13N heading north to the Trail 17N intersection. Heading northeast on Trail 17N to Trail 1 that runs to Eagle Lake trail.
When you come upon a group of sleds in front of you on the trail. Passing them can get you in trouble. Last time out I saw several groups ride up to other groups. The entire group passed the group they come upon. Not a good idea. By the time the last sled passes a sled could be coming from the other direction.
Remember as you ride & meet a groomer the equipment is NOT able to leave the trail due to it’s weight. Pull over & stop. Wait for direction from the driver. Give ’em a thumbs up. They groom so we can ride!
Eagle & Catfish Lake trails are still marked. With the sun surface slush will form on the deep SNOW.
