Long Lake is now marked and they will groom that area tomorrow!
Just a quick update before the weekend. Nothing has changed since our Monday night update other than a few groomers went out and did what they can. We have not received any new snow but have not lost any either. The groomers were out from Nelson Lake to the Seeley Hills, the Moose Lake area and the Round Lake to Lost Land Lake area. South of the Flowage there are awaiting more snow before sending groomers out. The groomers that lead to LCO and Whitefish will not be out until those two lakes can be staked. There is no ETA on those at this point. We will update as soon as there is any insight.
We had a long time groomer/avid rider out yesterday checking trails in these areas of mention and they were pleasantly surprised, they rated most of those trails as good and rideable. We certainly need more snow and it will come, although doesn’t look until next week sometime but you can most certainly ride this weekend. Those riders put on about 125 miles and rode in the Round Lake area to the north through the Seeley Hills towards Lake Namakagon to Moose Lake to the Flowage and back down towards Round Lake. They rated Bayfield County as being good as well.
Perhaps take this weekend as an easy, relaxed ride opportunity and enjoy the sights! Our northwoods has been encased in frost and the views have been breathtaking! What a perfect way to get out of the house, away from current events and reconnect with the outdoors!
New bridge on trail 18 from Callahan lake to Tiger Cat Flowage is complete and trail is open. PLEASE RIDE WITH CAUTION. There are stumps that are off trail so please stay on trail and SLOW DOWN. We need more snow before this trail can be groomed. A special thanks to those that put in many man hours to build and install the bridge.
