EAGLE RIVER TRAILS
Trails Good on average
March riding can be the best but you have to ride it when we have the SNOW. Today & tomorrow’s warm up will cause the SNOW to soften up. Riding along roads & open areas will burn down. Woods riding has more SNOW & should be Good.
Forecast has SNOW Sunday evening & Monday. 3-4 inches is forecast. 40 today & tomorrow and 30’s rest of the week during the day. 20’s or teens at night. It’s March. Again ride it when we got it.
Groomers headed out last night heading north and west:
10W/13N to 17N intersection. 17N to 3N aka Manske Swamp. 3N west to 10W/13N connect. North to al eft/west turn heading to Wisconsin River bridge all the way to the west intersection of 10W/13N. North/right on 13N to the Bauers/Buckatabon area connect with Conover.
10/13 heading south through town to 70W/7/13 intersection located just beyond the Dairy Queen. Grooming 70W to St. Germain connect. Grooming 13S to Sugar Camp connect. Midway down 13S is the intersection with 7. 7 groomed west to Cty Hwy H where it connects to the western Sugar Camp trails.
Once again please remember:
When you come upon a group of sleds in front of you on the trail. Passing them can get you in trouble. Have been seeing this all winter. When an entire group passes, by the time the last sled passes, a sled could be coming from the other direction.
Remember as you ride & meet a groomer the equipment is NOT able to leave the trail due to it’s weight. Pull over & stop. Wait for direction from the driver. Give ’em a thumbs up. They groom so we can ride!
Eagle & Catfish Lake trails are still marked. With the sun there is surface slush on the SNOW. If a lake is not marked it probably is not safe.
