Northwoods Hi-Riders- Solberg Lake Area 1/14/2019
We need snow, but the trails around the Solberg Lake area are rideable and in Fair condition. The Groomers have been out “panning” the trails, but there is not a lot of snow to work with for the full groomer drag. There tends to be more snow in the wooded areas and more going north and east. Solberg Lake was marked with barrels over the week end. The lake has good ice, but it is always best to stay on the marked trail. The Hi-Riders are having their annual Radar Fun Run and Vintage Sled Show this Saturday at Roll In Point on Solberg Lake, so even if trail riding isn’t the best, come out and join us for some fun.
Prentice Bush Benders trail report- 01/11/2019
All of our trails have been groomed once. They are in fair to poor condition with minimal snow cover in the open areas and in the village of Prentice. Trails in the woods are in better shape but are still in early season riding condition with some rough spots. Trails to the South and East of Prentice have more snow cover. All the creeks and swamp areas are frozen. There is logging on trails 181 East of Prentice and 116 East of County Road K. If we get snow the trails will improve quickly with the base we have down. We will be going out Monday and Tuesday to groom all of the trails one more time, after that we will not be grooming until we get more snow. Ride safe and have fun.

Fifield Sno Drovers
The Sno Drovers’ trails in the Pike Lake area are in better shape than the thin snow cover would suggest. I would rate them as fair to good. We have been grooming and the trails are generally smooth and hard. That being said, RIDE CAUTIOUSLY! There are rocks, dips and other hazards that normally would be covered with snow on the trails. I suspect the snow will not hold up well to heavy traffic so there is no telling how they will be after the weekend. We will continue grooming as we’re making the trails better, but at some point , if we don’t get snow, we’re better off not grooming since we’ll be pulling up rocks and shaving off what snow there is.
Logging continues on trail 120 south of the big swamp and Fould’s Creek Rd and on Trail 108 between Trail 101 and highway 70. Take these slowly and expect icy conditions and logging equipment. There is a small creek running across Trail 101 west of Northernaire/FR144. It is marked with a barrel and will not be a problem as long as you take it slow. We hear there is open water in Iron County on corridor 19 just off our Trail 106.
