Latest Trail Report

Trail System Closure – Oneida County PSA

Trail Report 03-16-2023

Up until yesterday, our groomer operators were reporting that the trails were in very good to excellent condition. Because of the warming temperatures, our trails haven’t been groomed since Sunday/Monday.

With the addition of rain this afternoon, the trails are in the process of deteriorating, but should still be in Good Spring Riding Condition this weekend, especially if we get a significant amount of snow this evening and tomorrow. For the first time this season, there are a few bare spots being reported in some of the corners.

Please! While you’re enjoying our trails, always Ride Right and Be Safe

Trail Issues:

•    On Corridor 12 from Willow Road east on the trail for 4 miles, be aware of trucks using Flowage Road to access a logging site. Slow down and ride with caution!

•    There’s logging activity on Trail 5 between TIN-513 and TIN-515. There is a very shallow base on this section of trail. You may want to consider an alternate route.

•   Trail 5A is PERMANENTLY closed between TIN-651 (the intersection of Trail 5 & Trail 5A) and TIN-653 (the intersection of Trail 5A & Price County Road). Follow the detour.

Weekend Forecast (as predicted by AccuWeather):

A high temperature of 24 degrees and a low temperature of 11 degrees. Expect NNW winds at 13 mph with wind gusts of 23 mph. There will be lingering snow showers throughout the day with an additional accumulation of 1 to 2 inches. Expect considerable cloudiness during the nighttime hours.
