EAGLE RIVERS TRAILS
VERY GOOD with some EXCELLENT
March 2 2019 7:00am – 13 – High 20
3-4 inches of new SNOW over night. High of 20 today but then moving into colder daytime highs & below zero zero every night until Wednesday or Thursday. Not much sunshine which is great for the trails.
Grooming continued with all trails groomed except Trail 1 that goes to the Eagle Lake boat launch over night. Trails are Very Good & even Excellent. With the deep SNOW no blow out in the corners but there is a lot of loose SNOW. Slow down. The deep SNOW has many deer are laying along side the trails for cover & they are walking down the trails for easier travel. Again slow down as they just pop up & run across the trail.
Here are other important updates:
Trail 10W/13N aka Wisconsin River Bridge Trail has reopened. Please use caution.
There is 1 logging operations going on where there is a need to use parts of the trails. Trail 13N by Deep Lake Rd. Plus utility work on 7 near Sugar Camp on the high line.
The snowbanks at driveway crossing & road crossings are very very high. Road crews are still out winging road banks. With clean up continuing & expect some blocked road & driveway crossings. Please stop & cross with caution.
Still seeing some signs buried in the deep SNOW mostly at the crossing where the snowbank are very high.
EAGLE LAKE TRAIL & CATFISH LAKE TRAIL ARE MARKED & OPEN. Lakes are drifted & lots & lots of slush under the SNOW. Drifting on Eagle Lake it much worse than on Catfish Lake.
The 2 one-way trail areas are 10E from the ERRA Sports Arena all the way out to Nicolet Mini Mart. The other is the 13’s up near Buckatabon Bridge & Bauer’s Dam area. Please be aware that for now signs will be buried in many locations. PLEASE BE SURE TO CHECK A MAP SO YOU KNOW THE LOCATION OF THESE TRAILS.
See ya on the trails. Give the groomers 2 thumbs up!
