Wenesday, January 16th - 10AM EST

 Trail Report:


We have the Pisten Bully back and spent the past 2 days working to repair and set problem sections of trail.  We have now repaired ALL trail sections to the point that they are ALL ridable.  There is more detail below. We have trail that is excellent and other sections that are fair at best.  Because of day time temps hovering near the freezing mark and lack of snow fall, some our trail is still in early season riding condition. We need more of the white stuff to really get the whole system up to good and excellent. We have a cold spell coming up and that should help freeze up the rest of the water holes we are fighting.


 It is illegal to ride on or ride the plowed shoulder of any Michigan state highway. (in this area: M64-M28-M38). When the trail runs along the hwy, you are allowed to come up onto the shoulder to go around a hazard or cross a bridge when necessary, but then you MUST return back to the trail. County deputies, state troopers and DNR law enforcement will write tickets for this infraction.


Trail 1 from White Pine to Lake of the Clouds   


  •   White Pine to Silver City is in good condition and the water holes have been fixed. There are multiple raised driveways in this section.  We do not have enough snow to level these out and you will go airborne at 30 MPH or above. On gray days, in the dark or when snowing, it is hard to identify and react to these elevation changes.  
  • There are a lot of deer crossing the trails in the Silver City area, please ride with caution.
  • I rode Silver City to South Boundary Rd on Monday.  It is thin and rough, but the water holes have been repaired, and it is ridable. The bridge has also been repaired and opened. Please be respectful of the people who live along this stretch and stay on the trail and out of their yards.
  • South Boundary Rd to The Porkies Ski Hill is thin but ridable.  Trail 1 to Lake of the Clouds has been groomed and is in good condition. We cut down the moguls on final hill, but will not be fully grooming this last climb until we get some more snow to cover the ice.


Trail 11 North -  (South Boundary Road - AKA The Snowmobile Super Highway)


  •  This trail is in very good condition.
  • Trail 11 South to Wakefield is closed, but Trail 102 to Bergland is open and groomed by Gogebic Area Grooming.


Trail 137  -  (the railroad grade between Ontonagon and Rockland) is in good condition.  


Trail 12


  • Greenland to 137 -  This trail between Ontonagon and Greenland is in good condition.
  • Ontonagon to Potato Farm Road  -  This trail is in good condition. 
  • Along LP Walsh Road -    This trail section was repaired on Monday.  I rode this Tuesday. There are still some wet areas, but it is now ridable.  It is in fair condition, and we will need more snow to get a better base. Stay on the trail in the low areas, there is water on both sides!  It is still a bit rough thru here, and there are a couple of elevated driveways in this stretch too. Slow down and ride with caution.


Trail 101  - Potato Farm Rd to Trail 13


  •   It is in very good condition.  


Trail 13


  • From Trail 101 to Trail 137 is in good condition.
  •  The section between the river crossing and Trail 137 is in terrible shape. There is massive ATV damage and the only way we'll be able to fix it is more snow. It's about a 1/2 mile of trail. We would recommend the alternate route below to and from Trail 137.  It is not being groomed right now.
  • The section between Trail 137 and Rockland is in good condition.


DETOUR:

If you are heading West out of Rockland. Take Trail 137 right (north) at the junction just West of town. Turn left onto Victoria Road (West) (I believe it is the first stop sign you will come to.) This will take you right back to the trail at the river bridge which runs part of this road.

If you are heading East to Rockland - stay on Victoria Road after you cross the river.  You will meet Trail 137 about a mile up the road. Turn right on Trail 137 and it will take you right back to 13.
