Area Report:

Well folks, don’t shoot the messenger!  This morning I shared Oneida County’s 1/7/2021 announcement that their trails would open on 1/9/2021.  Now, on 1/8/2021 they have issued a statement that they WILL NOT be opening their trails!  We’ll keep you posted as we get new updates, but it’s tough to stay current when they change their announcements!


  • Logging operations are continuing throughout the northwoods and in many areas where snowmobile trails are located.  Loggers have first priority!  PLEASE be respectful of them and make every attempt to stay out of their way.  DO NOT engage with them.  Loggers have a legal right to close any snowmobile trail where they are working.  They are being cooperative with the clubs and working with us the best they can.  PLEASE do not give them reason to close the trails.
  • There is absolute minimum base on the trail.  Be prepared to encounter many ruts, holes, rocks and little snow for hyfax lubrication.
  • Hintz’s North Star Lodge is currently closed.  Therefore, we have closed the trail leading to their establishment.  If and when they are open for business, we will reopen that trail.  Please respect them by not riding across their property.

Thank you for your patience and support while we await more snow.  Ride RIght and Stay Safe!
