Snow Cover: 7-10"
Date of Report: December 19, 2016
Three lakes trails will be opening their Oneida county portion of trails Tuesday December 20th at noon. Trails will be early season conditions with some not groomed yet due to wet swamps. Lakes are not safe yet therefore will not be marked. Once we have a date and time for Forest County trails we will announce that.
The Three Lakes – Brule River Trails are the destination that is sure to satisfy the most discerning snowmobiler. Our trail system encompasses 132 miles of state funded trails, plus 54 additional miles of locally funded trails.
The trail system traverses the most scenic country that Wisconsin has to offer. The Kimball Trail (upper and lower) will take you through the pristine Nicolet National Forest and provides your connection to Vilas and Forest County destinations. Our southern trails will lead you to the Rhinelander, Monico and Pelican Lake areas. Trails to the West and North will give you access to our neighbors in Sugar Camp, St. Germain and Eagle River.
Every day is sure to bring you a new and different snowmobiling experience!
Don’t forget to include downtown Three Lakes on your trail riding agenda. Our trail system will give you easy access to the many amenities that our downtown area has to offer. Once there, you’ll experience the old-fashioned charm of the Northwoods. Our main street is lit by antique lampposts and lined with very unique gift shops, restaurants, taverns and other small businesses.
The community’s greatest natural resource is the largest Chain of Lakes in the world, 28 interconnected lakes stretching northward to Eagle River, Wisconsin. Stay on the marked trails and you will be rewarded by the scenic beauty of the Three Lakes Chain.
Then, venture to the Northeast and discover the remote beauty of the Brule River Trails. Be sure to stop and sample the warmth and hospitality to be found at the local taverns and eating establishments.
Our trail system is professionally maintained and groomed by Three Lakes – Brule River Trails, primarily a volunteer organization. Grooming and trail maintenance is performed utilizing 2012 and 2010 New Holland Tracked Tractors, a 2004 Tucker Snowcat, a 2006 Fendt Tractor and a 2011 Polaris Tracked Ranger Utility Vehicle for light grooming and maintenance.
