Your Online Trail and Travel Guide for Snowmobiling the U.S. & Canada

Trail Report: Oconto County, Wisconsin – January 19, 2017

Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 5-9
Date of Report: January 19, 2017
Area Report:

Townsend – Red Arrow Snowmobile – ATV Club – It’s 41 degrees as I type this report for you and the trails are turning to mush. The forecast is for temps in the upper 30’s into the 40’s for the next 7 days with the possibility of some rain or freezing rain later in the week. Riding on the trails now will only destroy our wonderful base that’s been established over the last couple of snow storms! Rule of thumb again is: If your yard is sloppy and mushy, the trails will be too!! We won’t be able to groom until the temps settle down once more.

Lakewood – Paul Bunyan Snowmobile Club – The Lakewood trails as well as all other area trails are very soft and slushy. We are asking riders to please stay of the trails until the temperatures drop below freezing. We will be in the upper 30’s into the 40’s for the weekend. I know this is the last thing you wanted to hear after a great weekend of riding last weekend. We will not be grooming until further notice.

Bagley and Brazeau – Joyriders Trails -We will be CLOSING the trails Wednesday 1/18/2017 7:00AM. We are trying to save the trails and get colder weather to open them back up.

Gillett Sno ATV Riders – Gillett Trails remain open with good to excellent riding conditions. We are out grooming several times a week. Just a reminder the Gillett Shell Station to the Chuck Wagon is closed. There is a marked trail along Highway 32 to get to the Wildfire Hotel and Bar that is it. Please stay on marked trails.

Chute Pond Snowmobile Club – Chute Pond trails are open, but riding is discouraged at this time. With forecasted temperatures approaching 40 with possible rain, we are asking that you use common sense- and stay off the trails until the temperatures drop back down. We believe the trails will withstand this January thaw- your cooperation will help make this happen.

Oconto Falls – Sno Jokers Trails – Trails are CLOSED.

Lena Snow Drifters – Trails are CLOSED.

Chase Sno-Chasers – Trails are CLOSED.
