Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: 8 to 10 inches average (in the woods)
Date of Report: January 8, 2018
Our trails continue to be in the fair to good range. There is not a lot of base, but continued grooming at least has everything flat. Of course, the trails in the woods are better. The Sayner town trail is very snirty. We need snow is the bottom line.
Its bad news / good news that we are going to have a short warmup. The bad part is that we cannot afford to lose any snow. The good part is that hopefully the warm up will bring some snow in. Thursday looks to be our best chance with 3 to 5 inches in the forecast. Hopefully we’ll get it and hopefully its heavy/wet snow that we can finally build a better base with.
Continue to use caution on all lakes. Slushy spots can come and go.

(TIN = Trail Intersection Numbers)
Please watch out for these logging areas. Slow down and stay out of the way of the loggers. DO NOT hassle the loggers. They have the right to close down sections of any trail they are logging near or using. If they get hassled too much, that is exactly what they will do – shut that trail down. The logging operations can run at anytime of the day or night. Loggers use some of the trails to drive in and out. So please be watchful in logging areas for trucks on the trail.
