Iron Snowshoe: All trails in the High Falls/Peshtigo River and Parkway areas west of Crivitz are open in great condition, with the groomers being out on a regular basis. Fresh snow was received last weekend.
ATV/UTVs are not allowed in the Iron Snowshoe trails when temperatures are 32 degrees or above.
Near North: Trails in the Athelstane and Silver Cliff areas to the west and north are groomed, and trails to the south and east have been groomed throughout the week. Trails are in good riding condition considering the warmer temperatures. Riders should still be aware of areas with water, and the Amberg and Athelstane swamps will not be groomed this winter due to warm temperatures and standing water. The ATV/UTV trails are open year round, with the exception being when the county closed them for the spring thaw.
Kumalong Sno Riders: Snowmobile only trails in the Coleman/Pound/Peshtigo/Crivitz areas are open, in fair condition and most are being groomed. Farmer trail (from Lena trail to County W) is not due to the many low areas. Riders use caution.
Ranger City Riders: Trails are still just partially open. The RCR Trail system is partially open with good riding condition. Most sections that are open have been and continue to be groomed are in great shape.
OPEN: Highway Trail, West Trail, Hazelnut Loop and North Trail (trail is closed between Black Sam Road and Westberg Road due to major trail repairs. There is a detour down Black Sam Road to Westberg and back at trail head that is marked.)
PARTIALLY OPEN: East Trail (Corridor 1) open from Marek Road north to FR 404 and open from Wausaukee to Pike River Road. If using these trails, please use caution and use these sections to access other parts of the county trail systems. These sections have not yet been groomed due to the swamps. (The middle section between Pike River Road and County Highway K remains closed.)
River Road Riders: Trails in the Marinette/Peshtigo/Crivitz/Wausaukee/Lake Noquebay areas are all open, but riders should use caution as early season trail conditions are in play. Expect to see downed trees, open creeks/swamps and standing corn. Ice conditions are poor, so crossings are not recommended. Be prepared for obstacles and reroutes. Trail work and grooming are ongoing.
Oconto County Trail Report
Townsend Red Arrow Snowmobile ATV Club: All trails are in very good to excellent riding condition except between intersections 510 & 512.
Bagley and Brazeau Joyriders: Trails are getting soft due to frost coming out of the ground of this week, but there is still a good base. The trail to Suring is thin in spots but very rideable. The marshes and low ares still need time to freeze up before they can be groomed. Where trails are groomed, they are in good to very good condition. The pipeline is in fair condition due to the soft ground. Groomers will be be back on the trails all day today.
Chute Pond Snowmobile Club: All trails are open, groomed on a regular basis and in good to very good condition on the NST (RR grade from Suring to Intersection 605) and all trails west of the NST. The wooded trails to Boulder Lake, Animal’s, the Mountain Lakes trail to Halfway Bar and the 18 Corridor west of the NST are all in good to very good condition. The wooded trails east of the NST are in good early season condition. The 18 Corridor east of the NST in a smooth ride all the way to Crooked Lake. Be aware of the icy spot/water hole between Nelligan Lake Road and Crooked Lake — riders will need to go around. On the eastern trails, watch for possible slushy and/or wet/icy/rough frozen areas.
The trail from Intersection 472 (Old 64) north to Intersection 455 (18 Corridor) has reopened. Please use extra caution in this are as it will not be groomed for some time as the ice under the snow needs to develop more. The previous water hole will be icy, so go slow through that area.
EXCEPTIONS: Trails that will remain closed indefinitely are from Intersection 451-453 (from east of Highway 32 behind the Junction to Jack Pine Road) and from Intersection 447 north to the 18 Corridor trail near Crooked Lake (the northern pipeline trail).
