Local clubs are out grooming trails the best they can! Caution is advised throughout the trail system as some lake ice may still not be safe at this time. Please note that swamps and wet areas on the trail system are likely to have standing water and/or rough ice crossings in places. Some wet areas will not have been groomed with heavy equipment yet. Please be aware that some trail segments have been rerouted, to avoid wet areas.

Groomer Notes: 

1/14/20 – Trail 4-6 was groomed today. All swamps were groomed for the first time. The trails are in very good shape other than part that was groomed for the first time which is still rather bumpy. (Submitted by Rolling Hills Snowmobile & ATV Club)

1/11/20 – Long Lake was staked as of Monday, January 6th with ice depths coming in anywhere from 6″ to 10.5″ on the marked trail. (Off the trail ice depths ranged anywhere from 4″ to 10.5″) The Lake Trail was groomed for the 1st time ever on Wednesday, January 8th. Please note there is a large ice heave that cuts across the trail just North of The Pioneer. As always use caution on ice! Additionally, Spider Lake & Chetac lakes are now also marked.
