EAGLE RIVER TRAILS
Expect ALL Conditions – Head into the woods trails
March 11, 2022 – 7:53am – 12 – High 14 – Low 7below
March weather continues. Teens for highs today & tomorrow. SNOW Saturday afternoon. 1-2 inches. Then the temps pop up on Monday with SNOW Monday night into Tuesday. No totals yet. From Wednesday forward temps pop way up.
Trails should hold their own today. Mostly cloudy with maybe a little sun. Only 14 for a high. Trails are crusty in most places from the ice storm last weekend, sunny days & then deep freeze night. Be aware that conditions this time of year change quickly & are very slippery. Trails that are on the south side of roads will be much better than those on north side. Trail 10E one way headed east pretty good. Trail 10E one way heading west back to town not so good. Trail 70W from Eagle River Inn west of Eagle River heading west is on the north side & not so good. Both north side trails have a lot of burn through. “The Grade” section of 13 heading into town pretty good. It has a limestone base so the burn through just doesn’t happen there. Through town really crusty. Crossing not so good. As for the rest let you know tomorrow. Going out.
Groomer Tracking (GTS) shows no grooming over night.
Biggest complaint I have been hearing all season is about off trail riding. Folks the Clubs of Vilas County work very hard to secure easements from private landowners & folks we are losing many due to off trail riding. There is NO LEGAL OFF TRAIL RIDING ANYWHERE IN VILAS COUNTY. So PLEASE NO OFF TRAIL RIDING.
Catfish & Eagle lake trails marked & OPEN. Stay by the orange reflective barrels. Surface slush. DO NOT think the entire lake is safe. Several sleds have gone in the water this season far from the barrels.
Get out & ride might be near the end. See the Fat Lady. Not singing but getting ready.
See ya on the Trails !
