Your Online Trail and Travel Guide for Snowmobiling the U.S. & Canada

Trail Report: Oconto County, Wisconsin – January 6, 2017

Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 3-4
Date of Report: January 6, 2017
Area Report:

Townsend – Red Arrow Snowmobile – ATV Club – It’s -12° F as I prepare this report. If you were wondering if the trails are froze down hard, the answer is yes. The groomers were out on Tuesday night and did a fantastic job. Right now I would rate our trails as GOOD to VERY GOOD riding condition. They were rode hard over the weekend, but cleaned up nicely with the fresh wet snow that fell on Monday night. That added to the base that was already set in place. So bundle up and come riding with us

Lakewood – Paul Bunyan Snowmobile Club – All trails were groomed today and groomed out very good. We rate them as good. Ride safe and stay warm!!!!

Bagley and Brazeau – Joyriders Trails – The trails are getting better, we have a good base and the snow we received Friday night and Monday night helped. The marshes still need time to freeze up, before we can groom them. Club member reported in this weekend and said the trails were fair to good condition in many areas.  Snow is light on the east portion of the trail system, from Klondike north to White Potato Lake.  Pipeline is in fair condition due to lack of grooming.  Forest trails are fair to good.

Gillett Sno ATV Riders – Trails are CLOSED.

Chute Pond Snowmobile Club – Chute Pond trails are open and in “early season” condition, with possible icy areas, occasional exposed rocks, and some thin or rutted areas. There are some wet low spots that have not frozen up yet- or that have frozen up and have not been groomed smooth yet.

We got 2″ of packy snow last night, and it’s just what we needed to make our trails rideable again. Most of our trails have a solid ice base with 2-4″ of snow cover on top of that base. We are grooming when possible. After this week’s deep freeze we should be able to groom all low and swampy areas.

Areas we recommend you avoid or use extreme caution in until they freeze up completely and can be groomed properly: pipeline trail- rough with broken water holes, trail from Junction to pipeline- rough with broken water holes, Twin Pine road trail- rutted from vehicle tracks, 18 Corridor from Neligan Rd to Crooked Lake- rough swampy area. These areas have substantial wet & muddy areas which may or may not have frozen yet- either way they could possibly cause issues for you and your sled.

Our trails are ride-able, but they are still in early season condition- please use extra caution, especially in the areas listed above.

Oconto Falls – Sno Jokers Trails –  Trails are CLOSED.

Lena Snow Drifters – Trails are CLOSED.
Chase Sno-Chasers – Trails are CLOSED.
