Dun-Good Riders: Snowmobile and ATV/UTV trails in the Dunbar and Goodman areas of Northwestern Marinette County are open, groomed and in excellent condition. The trails were freshened up thanks to 4-5 inches of snow on Monday night and the trails have been continuing to be groomed throughout the week. Winter ATV/UTV use is allowed. The Club Ride is on Saturday and that goes to the Pemenee River Riders 3rd annual Brat Fry in Pembine.
NOTE: Riding ATV/UTV’s on Highway 8 is illegal. The trail that connects to Armstrong Creek is not accessible for ATV/UTV use because the trail is on the highway right-of-way.
