Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: rock hard base
Date of Report: March 7, 2022
Well folks, it is that time. ….Late season riding. Currently, the trails are fair, with some thin corners and exposed roadways will be bare. Dirty snow at trail roadway intersections. The trails came out of Saturday’s rain better than expected. We didn’t lose much base, and the trail bed became hard.
The trails are as flat as they have been all season – that is the “good” news. These are the following criteria that must be taken in accord when riding:
Road routes are thin in areas. There hasn’t been fresh snow in over a week. The sun can quickly melt roadways this time of the year
The trail bed / corners are icy – safety
Currently, the trails are rock solid, slide lubrication can be an issue.
If it wasn’t for those items, I would put them as “good”. But “fair” is the correct assessment in the big picture.
Now the good news….We are in March and still riding!! Hodags will be continuing to groom on a regular basis as long as temperature and conditions warrant.
The lakes are all marked with minor signs of slush. There are multiple roads across Boom Lake so use extreme caution when traveling on that route.
There is one trail closure on the Hodag Sno-Trails system: Trail H4 from Boom Lake to the intersection just north of River Rd. This is basically the “land” route to not running Boom Lake. The trail is closed at this point. We have been just notified that this is a permanent closure. Running the lake is the reroute.
Conditions will change quickly at this point. We will try to update as they change.
Oneida County trails could stay open until March 31st….conditions permitting. Time to ride!!
