Snowmobiles Are NOT allowed Inside 70 West Park (Minocqua Sports Complex)

Today, Mark Pertile – Director of Public Works sent a message to Police Chief Jaeger letting him know that snowmobiles are riding inside 70 west park and causing damage.  He asked that if anyone is seen riding snowmobiles within the park property to please enforce appropriately.

As a reminder, snowmobile and trailer parking is allowed in lot Q only, with direct access to the trail that runs along Camp Pinemere Road.  This is when trails are officially open.

The snowmobile clubs have been notified that they are having issues.

Please pass the word along!!

Thank you,

Trail Brushing Thank You Note

We want to recognize and thank the following club members who took the time on Tuesday, 1/12 to brush trail 5 from tin 513 to Ruth Rd. They also signed the culvert at the beaver dam.  They had 4 pickup trucks, 3 with trailers to transport 4 ATV’s and a UTV, chainsaws, brush cutters and hand cutters .  They cut all the trees that were growing in and along the sides of the trail.  Gordon Murray (Area 6 Willow Region Leader) is very pleased with what was accomplished and said he couldn’t have asked for a better crew!

166 Miles of Groomed Trails

Help Support Our Trails

The Minocqua Forest Riders maintain over 166 miles of snowmobile trails in the area. We have members throughout Oneida and Vilas Counties, as well as from many other areas all over Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, and Michigan. These  Legendary Northwood Trails are groomed several times a week with a priority for weekend traffic.  Our trail system connects Minocqua to Price County (Pike Lake Area) on the west, north to Lac Du Flambeau (Lake of The Torches Casino and Resort), East to Minocqua, Woodruff, and Lake Tomahawk, and south to the Willow Flowage Area!!!

In support of our motto, “GROOMING FOR YOU IS WHAT WE DO”, the Minocqua Forest Riders remain committed to manage and maintain our scenic trails. To this end, there is a variety of equipment necessary to accomplish this annual responsibility. Current club equipment values $800,000. Maintaining this investment is important to ensure annual trail preparation and continued maintenance throughout the season.
