Time to get out & ride!
Today is Thursday so that means a Sno-Eagles Trail Ride! Meet at 9am at the Historic Railroad Depot in town. Howard/Rusty Wolf should be your guide.
Grooming last night with the BR-180 Bombardier & the Tucker. Trails 10E, 3S, 10W, 17N, 1 to Eagle Lake.
- Trail 1N logging operation continues in the section between the Town of Washington Town Hall & Eagle Lake. Clearly marked with signs.
- Wisconsin River Trail – 10W/13N & Manske Swamp – 3N are being groomed off & on. There are rough spots but it is frozen tight. All SNOW covered. If no sun over the next few days there should be no slush. Will keep you posted.
CATFISH LAKE LOOP & EAGLE LAKE TRAILS ARE NOW BOTH MARKED AND OFFICIALLY OPEN. PLEASE STAY BY THE BARRELS TO BE SAFE. VERY HARD SURFACE. NO SLUSH AS OF THIS MORNING. REMINDER THE CATFISH LAKE LOOP TO LUMPY’S IS NO LONGER A TRAIL.
Returned from a meeting later last night & the groomer was out on 10E. Oh my you should have seen the trails. Flat & way smooth! Wish I could get out & ride but Tom & I will be at the Derby Track hosting a Race Team new to the Derby!
Department of Tourism photo shoot was yesterday & the group riding reported great trails!
If you are riding zip on over to the “grade” to check out the 2018 Eagle River Area Fire Department ICE CASTLE!!!! Located adjacent to the downtown “grade” trail by the Historic Railroad Grade. The lights installed change colors. Ice benches as part of the Castle let you take photos of your group. Check out this link Eagle River Ice Castle to check out more photos. Darn pretty!
