Trail Report: Oconto County, Wisconsin – January 18, 2017

Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 5-9
Date of Report: January 18, 2017
Area Report:

Townsend – Red Arrow Snowmobile – ATV Club – It’s 32 degrees as I type this today. We also picked up 1 1/2″-2″ of snow last night while many of you are still fighting the ice. What a difference a couple of days make! The trails are in VERY GOOD condition YET! We groomed the bad spots yesterday so they can freeze down flat again when the cold decides to return. The rest of the trails are just fine with the exception of some of the potholes in the hills that just need a little more snow to fill them. During this warm spell please try and stay off the trails when the temperature is above freezing. It will only do damage to our wonderful base! Rule of thumb: If your driveway and yard are sloppy, so are the trails!!!

Lakewood – Paul Bunyan Snowmobile Club – The groomers were out Sunday night smoothing out the trails before the expected coating of ice later today and into Tuesday. Trail boss Jack Bailey said they groomed out very good. We are asking if the temperatures go into the mid to upper 30’s you stay off the trails to save the base for the future. Hopefully the rain stays south of Green Bay. Congratulations to the Packers on a awesome win. I will update what and how much precipitation we receive. Ride Safe !!!

Bagley and Brazeau – Joyriders Trails -We will be closing the trails Wednesday 1/18/2017 7:00AM. We are trying  to save the trails and get colder weather to open them back up.

Gillett Sno ATV Riders – Gillett Trails remain open with good to excellent riding conditions.  We are out grooming several times a week.  Just a reminder the Gillett Shell Station to the Chuck Wagon is closed. There is a marked trail along Highway 32 to get to the Wildfire Hotel and Bar that is it. Please stay on marked trails.


Chute Pond Snowmobile Club – Chute Pond trails are open, being groomed when possible, and in good condition.

Last night we got about 1/2″ of freezing rain. The next 7 days of weather don’t look very nice for our trails, either.

With forecasted temperatures approaching 40 with possible rain, we are asking that you use common sense- and stay off the trails until the temperatures drop back down. We believe the trails will withstand this January thaw- your cooperation will help make this happen.


Oconto Falls – Sno Jokers Trails –  Trails are Closed.

Lena Snow Drifters – Trails are Closed.
