Trail Report

January 2, 2020

Trails are in great condition, we have been getting colder temps at night which is helping to firm up the trails very nice. We have been having the groomers out nonstop and they are reporting perfect conditions. Trails that are still closed include corridor 8, trail 12 from 12B intersection to Swamp Creek rd, we are hoping to have progress on that trail in the very near future. Fisher Lake to Island View Lodge is marked and the Turtle-Flambeau Flowage is marked from THE GATEWAY LODGE to Donner’s Bay Resort. Please stay on the marked trails on our lakes. Stay safe, ride right, use hand signals, and have fun.

It’s getting cold and we are getting snow! Trails are starting to harden up, we have people out checking the trails all day today, and we will be out grooming later tonight! We are getting a lot of questions about trail conditions so pass this around.

Trail Report

December 29, 2019
We did receive rain throughout the night but due to the amount of snow we had the trails aren’t as bad as we were predicting. As of right now the trails are rough and slushy due to us not being able to groom them, some corners are bare and there are wet spots in some swamps.

We do have good news ahead, we have a winter storm watch Monday morning into Monday evening calling for 9-15 inches of snow along with colder temperatures.

Our trails are fair right now and will remain open.

We will update on any conditions change.

Trail Report

December 25, 2019

Trails remain in great condition despite some warmer temperatures. We have groomed through most of our swamps which means we are pretty much on a normal grooming schedule. These are the best conditions this time of year in recent memory so get up here and ride. Trails 19B, 12 from 12B to Swamp Creek Rd, and 182 from the Frontier to Price County still remain closed at this time. We should have news on our lakes shortly so stay tuned. Merry Christmas everybody!

Trail Report 12/11/2019

Early season conditions still apply, we are still grooming around all swamps and hoping this cold weather yesterday and today helps freeze down our lakes and swamps. We received another 8-10″ of snow on Monday so we have been working to get everything all groomed. The trails are in great condition minus the wet spots in some of the swamps. Riders from last week reported excellent conditions. Trail 13, 51E to Vilas County, and 182 to Price County still remain closed until further notice. Remember early season conditions still apply.

Trail report 12-04-2019

Iron county trail system opens Thursday, December 5th at 8am.

Please expect early season riding, the Flowage and Lake of the Falls are not marked and currently not safe to ride on, we strongly advise to not ride the Flowage or Lake of Falls until it has been marked. Lake traffic is not advised. We have been through a good portion of our swamps with either sleds or our alltrack and they are passable, you will find wet areas so use caution. 17N is groomed and in great condition, we had groomers out on 12A&B, 10, 20, and 19 and they report great conditions but there are still wet areas. Please keep in mind that these are early season conditions. As conditions change through-out this opening weekend we will be posting frequent trail reports.

Trails that are closed

51E-Vilas county
17S-Vilas county
182-Price county
11-Ashland county
