The temps were in the 40’s yesterday & will be there today as well.  Trails that were in Good or even better conditions have down graded to FAIR in many areas.  In town trails are POOR to FAIR with very mushy conditions & bare roads.  Road trails for the most part have no snow on them.  Moving out of town conditions improve but it is a struggle to get to them without a bit of adventure sledding.  In woods trails particularly way out east, north & southwest are FAIR with even some areas of GOOD. Get far & few between. Trailering & dropping off to ride might be good.

The section of the Chanticleer Inn Trail off of Trail 10E that take riders to Eagle is mushy & wet at the entrance heading to the lake.  Trail Boss is monitoring that area and will close if conditions continue.

Trail 1N logging operation continues in the section between the Town of Washington Town Hall & Eagle Lake. With the log piles and icy grainy conditions in that section it would be good to slow down. Minimal grooming due to the logging operation.

Catfish Lake Loop & Eagle Lake Trails are marked with orange easy to see reflective barrels.  Please stay by the barrels to be safe.  Reminder that the Catfish Lake Trail that ran from Braywood to Lumpy’s is not open.  Please do not trespass on private land.

To keep the riding season going it’s going to take everyone Doin’ the SNOW Dance & THINKING COLD!!

See ya on the trails again real soon!
