EAGLE RIVER TRAILS
Good to Very Good
Trail conditions are in Good to Very Good but are very icy. The base is hard ice covered with hard frozen snow with loose snow on top. About 1/2 inch yesterday. This is making for VERY slippery conditions. These conditions can get you in trouble quickly so please SLOW DOWN & RIDE RIGHT to be safe.
Deep freeze temps have ended. 20’s during the day until Monday when temps will pop up in the 30’s ’til Friday. Teens to low 20’s at night. SNOW Monday night into Tuesday morning. No firm totals.
Last night all trails except Trail Alt 13S to Three Lakes were groomed.
REMINDER – Trail 10E has a one-way section that starts at Taylor Lake Rd. When riding & head east past the ERRA Sports Arena you ride on the south side of Hwy 70E. This goes all the way to the gas station. When riding & heading west from the gas station you ride on the north side of Hwy 70E. All road crossings have signs that say DO NOT ENTER – if you are going the wrong way. Please be aware & do not go the wrong way on these trails.
Eagle & Catfish Lake trails are marked. Please stay by the orange reflective barrels. No change in condition. Surface is very hard. Found it slippery in spots. Remember not all lakes are safe.
NOTE: Off of Trail 70W after entering St. Germain is a trail locals call “The Goat” trail. It is a Club Trail that starts at TIN 287 to TIN 288 that is CLOSED. It is clearly marked as CLOSED with fencing & signs. Please do not ride through this area from either direction. DO NOT RIDE ON HWY 70 as this is not legal.
Last, off trail riding is a big problem. PLEASE STAY ON THE TRAIL & Take the Snowmobilers Pledge.
Keep DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE!! Slow down & Ride Safe!
See ya on the trails today!
