Trail riding is still out there but it may take some endurance to get there or might want to trailer to locations to find the SNOW.  Trails 10W/13N beyond the intersection west of the WI River crossing has SNOW.  Might consider trailering up to Bauer’s Dam & riding south & west on 10W/13N from there.  OR trailering to either the ERRA Sports Arena east of Eagle River on Hwy 70E.  Trail 10E is a one way trail on both sides of Hwy 70E.  The southside is in covered to beyond MJ’s Wayside.  Then heading toward Three Lakes. Road route sections are patched with ice or bare.  End of season riding.

No off trail riding please.

Catfish & Eagle Lake trails are marked with orange reflective barrels.  Deep surface slush on both lakes. Plus some ice fishing holes near the trail.

For me sledding is done for the season.

Eagle River has long held the distinction of SNOWMOBILE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD, and it’s a matter of pride that causes local clubs and businesses to work so diligently to maintain that title. Snowmobile fever becomes a way of life in our Eagle River winters, and the talk often turns to “picks”, “carbides” and performance. In fact, these snow machines seem to outnumber cars during the winter months.

Over 500 MILES OF GROOMED TRAILS connect the communities of the area, including access to major county and state routes. Trails wind throughout the area’s scenic forests, but frequently pass close to service businesses which can provide you with fuel and sustenance, shelter and refreshment. If you don’t have your own snowmobile, several dealerships will be happy to provide you with equipment during your visit.
