Winter Snowmobile and All-Season Trails (As of 3/16/2020)
All snowmobile and Winter ATV trails under the management of the Douglas County Forestry Department are officially closed for the season.
It is critical that we respect the landowners who allow us to utilize their property.
In addition, all-year-round recreational trails are temporarily closed at this time except for the following trail segments:
Gandy Dancer – MN/WI Stateline to Patzau.
Saunders Grade – MN/WI Stateline to Schallameir Road Parking Lot
Wild Rivers Trail – Douglas Co./Washburn Co. line to a point 500 feet north of County Highway Y
Wild Rivers Trail – North Trailhead parking lot (County Highway A) to the Harroun Road.
Cross Country Ski Trails (As of 3/16/2020)
Douglas County Ski Trails – The trails are packed hard and the groomer was unable to cut new tracks in the packed snow. Grooming is suspended until further notice.
Superior Municipal Forest – Update 3/13: Due to the rain, conditions are poor but skiable in most of the system. Grooming is limited due to the ice. Skiers should watch for flowing water and multiple ice spots on the trails. At this time groomers will need to hold off on future grooming operations unless we get snow.
Pattison State Park – No new updates are available.
Brule River After Hours Trail – Update on 3/13: Skate lanes have been groomed. Tracks are in poor condition except for Sally’s Classic Trail which still is decent. There is some debris on the trails.
