21 – 02_18 Trail Report

We’ve had extremely great riding conditions the past week or so during the polar vortex. Even though there’s not as much snow on the trails as we’re use to, the riding experience has been superb.

Trails:  All Minocqua Forest Rider Trails: Good to Very Good Condition. You may even find a few stretches of trail that’s in Excellent Condition.

Trail Issues:

There’s a logging operation on Trail 9/10A between Lower Kaubashine Road (TIN-671) and Cedar Falls Drive (TIN-670). Recommend Detour:

–  Heading South – Follow Trail K west at TIN-671 to the Snowmobile Route on Cedar Falls Drive and turn left (first road intersection). You’ll eventually merge onto the trail.

–  Heading North – Continue north on the Cedar Falls Drive Snowmobile Route past where the trail enters the woods. Turn right onto Trail K (Lower Kaubashine Road) and head east to TIN-671.

Trail J, east of Bo-Di-Lac Drive (TIN 611) has exposed stumps and logs in the swampy area where the trail comes off of Squirrel Lake. Even with last weeks new snow, this is still an issue. Ride with caution on this section of trail.

Grooming:  All trails will be groomed and ready to go by tomorrow morning for the weekend.

Weekend Weather Outlook (as reported by AccuWeather):

Warmer temperatures are moving into the area as we approach the weekend. The predicted high temperature on Friday will be 18 degrees, Saturday 23 degrees and Sunday 30 degrees. It’s going to be mostly cloudy on Friday and Sunday, but Saturday we’ll be blessed with bright sunny skies. Friday night’s low of a -5 degrees will end this miserable streak of sub zero temperatures. The expected average low temperatures will stabilize in the mid teens heading into next week. In general, winds will be light and variable.

Looking Ahead: Monday through Thursday the temperatures are expected to be above average and creeping into the low to mid 30 degree range, topping out at near 40 degrees on Tuesday. Unfortunately, there’s little to snow predicted in the near future.
