Forest County Snowmobile Trails will be partially opening at Noon on Friday, January 29, 2021 for the snowmobiling season. Forest County has about 405 miles of state funded trails maintained by five snowmobile clubs including the 100 Mile Snow Safari, Lumberjack Memorial Trails, Black Bear Sportsmen’s Club Trails, Three Lakes Trails and the Tombstone-Pickerel Trails. Only the northern trails will be open. Everything north of Goodman Park Rd to County Rd H to County Rd T to Hwy 32 and west along Hwy 8 w will be open. Everything south of that line will remained closed. Closed trails will be marked with ribbon and/or or “Trail closed” signs, please pay close attention when riding as the closed trails are in dangerous riding conditions.
Snowmobile clubs have been panning the trails and have all trails cleared and signed.
New snowmobile maps are also available for the New Year thanks to sizeable donations by the Sugarbush Snowmowheelers. The donations has resulted in an awesome snowmobile trail map to guide snowmobilers throughout Forest County.
Please remember that the Nicolet State Trail, the Wolf River State Trail, and the Valley Trail are the ONLY snowmobile trails in Forest County that are currently open for ATV and UTV use. The Forest County Snowmobile Trail Ordinance currently prohibits ATV, UTV use and motor vehicle use on all other snowmobile trails in Forest County. Snowmobile trails are “NOT” open for motor vehicle use or hunting. THOSE DRIVING TRUCKS ON TRAILS ARE SUBJECT TO FINES THROUGH THE COUNTY SNOWMOBILE TRAIL ORDINANCE.
