Barnestormers  Barnes area 1-2 inch base not grooming need more snow 

Drummond Sno Jacks All Drummond area thru Mason area have been panned at least once.  Swampy areas packed by snowmobile.  Trail conditions are poor by lack of snow, and expected to deteriorate with warm temps.

Namakagon Trail Groomers Swamps still have wet spots and we need more snow to be able to groom.

Northern Adventures We are done grooming as of now. What base we had is gone.

South Shore Trails Club Trail 1 can be groomed this year if we get snow. Trail 1 from Swedlund road to Campbell road will likely not be groomed this year. With these warm temps the trails should remain closed.

Washburn Valhellers  Trails in the Valhalla area and Bayfield peninsula, including Red Cliff are in poor condition with maybe a 6 to 8 inch base. The warm-up for the next two weeks will have a major impact on the base. Hope for more snow.

Wisconsin’s Northwoods is the best overall place in North America for SNOWMOBILE TRAIL RIDING and FAMILY SNOWMOBILING, according to the readers of Snow Goer magazine. In addition to winning the BEST TRAIL AREA and BEST AREA CATERING TO FAMILIES categories, the Northwoods tied for second with the Yellowstone area in the voting for Best Overall Snowmobiling Area.

Situated on the edge of THE LARGEST OF THE GREAT LAKES, pristine Lake Superior, Bayfield County Wisconsin is home to 433,582 acres of public land that provide endless trails for snowmobilers. We have over 600 miles of groomed trails along with over 1000 miles of ungroomed forest roads for your riding pleasure. Our annual average snowfall is 73 inches.


The Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center is a great place to stop on your journey. Snowmobilers are greeted with a special area to warm or dry your gloves and hang your helmet while exploring the center’s displays and 5-story observation tower which showcases the area. You’ll find it near the Tri-County Recreational Corridor which runs from the City of Ashland in Ashland County to the City of Superior in Douglas County.

We are host to many scenic vistas in the Chequamegon National Forest as well as abundant wildlife including deer, wolf, black bear and elk.

Guilty of bragging about our super-groomed trails, our local snowmobile clubs continually make improvements to make our trails safe and more enjoyable for sledders.

We invite you to experience snowmobiling at its best in Bayfield County Wisconsin. Snowmobile maps/travel information are available by calling 800-472-6338 or by visiting
