EAGLE RIVER TRAILS
Good to Excellent
Trails in Eagle River & ALL of Vilas county are in fantastic riding condition! 5-6+ inches of new SNOW! Plenty of moisture so trails will lay down really good after grooming. On top of that it is only getting to 23 today & down to 5 tonight! SNOWS not going anywhere! Time to ride it when we got it!
Took a short 68 mile ride yesterday. Heading out from our home on Trail 10E. West on 10 to intersect with 13 “the grade”. Fantastic with a few sections of chop under the new SNOW. “The grade” to town was filled with a ton of SNOW with some minor chop. Left on to 70W/7S/13S. Heading all the way out to the St. Germain connect. Again ton of SNOW & Very Good. St. Germain 70W to 10N was Excellent. 10N into to 7N through St. Germain, Sayner & Conover trails making our way north. All Excellent. All the way up to 8 which is Sayner into Conover trails. Good to Excellent! 13 in Conover into Eagle River to 10/13 & headed to Wisconsin River bridge crossing. It was tight, smooth which a little minor mush in the first corner on the west side. Otherwise Very Good. 10/13 all the way to town. Very Good to Excellent. Through town to “the grade” to 10 all the way home. ALL roads were covered with a ton of SNOW. It was fantastic.
If you’re riding today, pretty sure crews will be out plowing & clearing roads. Expect snowbanks at road crossing. Stop to be sure you can see both ways.
Nearly a full grooming last night. Here are trails the were not groomed:
70W to St. Germain turn around
7 aka Paint Ball Field to Cty H & Sugar Camp trails connect
13S along Hwy 17S to Sugar Camp trails connect
10W from TIN 105 – at the intersection where trail goes west on Deep Lk Rd & heads south toward Croker Rd
With the number of accidents & fatalities this season will keep reminding you:
When you come upon a group of sleds in front of you on the trail. Passing them can get you in trouble. Have been seeing this all winter. When an entire group passes, 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!
Please ride on the right side, slow down, limit alcohol & no off trail riding.
Eagle & Catfish Lake trails are still marked. With the new SNOW & wind expect drifting. If a lake is not marked it probably is not safe.
