Marinette County Trail Report week of December 11, 2018
PEMENEE RIVER RIDERS: Pembine/Niagara-Beecher: Our trails to the west toward Dunbar are being groomed. We need some more snow before we groom to the east. We are working on opening gates yet on our trail to Norway. I would rate our trails as poor for snowmobiling due to lack of snow.
DUN-GOOD RIDERS: Dunbar/Goodman: No new snow. Poor conditions for snowmobiles. Open for ATV's & UTV's.
RANGER CITY RIDERS Amberg/Wausaukee: Our trails are still closed due to lack of snow and a few spots with open water. We were out this weekend preparing for opening and need another decent snowfall and a few more days of cold temps to freeze a few more wet areas.
NEAR NORTH Athelstane: 12/11/18---NEAR NORTH TRAIL RIDERS OF ATHELSTANE: (Snowmobile & ATV-UTV Trails) Snowmobiling is not recommended. Base is thin, some sections are closed due to wet conditions in the swamps, no grooming at this time. Our atv-utv trails are open all year round except for the one month in the Spring when the county closes them. The trails are not yet panned or groomed. The tracks were installed on the tractor Saturday after our meeting. With this is done, we are good to go.
RIVER ROAD RIDERS Marinette/Wausaukee: Trails are closed.
KUMALONG SNO-RIDERS Coleman/Crivitz/Peshtigo: Kumalong's trails remain closed because lack of snow
IRON SNOW SHOE RECREATIONAL TRAILS High Falls Flowage/Peshtigo River/Silver Cliff: Trails are still closed-- except north of Hwy C where they are open for ATV's & UTV's ONLY. The cold weather has helped with our base and also freezing up the lakes. It is still not enough. We need snow and more cold weather. There will be a new trail along Cty X between Wildwood Lane and the bridge. This should be done by the end of this week. More maintenance is being done. There is so much work done long before the snow even comes. The brushing crews have already been out in an effort to get rid of any fallen trees. We also have a brusher hooked on to one of the tractors that has been out to clear away the smaller stuff. There will be a new trail along Cty X between Wildwood Lane and the bridge. This should be done by the end of this week. We all need to do the snow dance!!!
