Ironwood Trail Report – Gogebic Range Trail Authority – 03/23

160 water hazards and there are 3 stretches of road to run that will be tough if you can’t ride up on the banks. It was cold yesterday and most hazards froze up hard last night. But today they will all break open and really start flowing. Safest rides would be trailering to Wakefield (ski hill reroute road routes are brutal) and riding to Marenisco. The northern end of the trail is gorgeous!!! Ride slowly today conditions will change quickly. Remember Iron county is closed and Vilas County closes tonight at midnight. WHAT A SEASON, THANK YOU GRTA VOLUNTEER GROOMER OPERATORS!!

If you want to ride this weekend we suggest riding from Ironwood North out trail 160 and back. NOTE Wi trail #3 to Driftwood is closed, no connector back to Hurley. Second suggestion is to unload at the "giant snowman" park and ride in Wakefield riding trail 2 to Marenisco. No grooming occurred since Sunday, but trails remain flat due to light traffic. Pictures are of trail 2 east of Wakefield, there is 1.75mi of plowed trail due to logging. Either side of that section is rated good to very good. We are heading out grooming this afternoon!! Be aware for rapidly changing conditions and water hazards. Ride slow!!! This hazards come up quick!! The pics from our club member said they took trail 1 north and trail 8 back west to their unload spot saying "all was good." ... See MoreSee Less

Our President took this video this morning out his back door...Quite the tease, eh? Tons of snow in the woods yet, trails have water hazards here and there, they are WHITE and we hope to do some grooming before the weekend. Everything was hit Sunday and with low midweek traffic trails are flat! Ride cautiously, ride right & ride sober! ... See MoreSee Less

We groomed several hundred miles this past weekend, all of our system was groomed at least twice including 160 & 11S. THERE REMAINS WAIST DEEP SNOW AND A BASE OF 12-30" OF SNOW ON THE TRAILS. Water holes are back and here to stay, while there are only a few hazards like this on our trails, many are around the Wakefield area, especially near trail 2/8 intersection. Later this week the trail between Bessemer & Wakefield will get really tough, the county has removed the ditch trail to allow for proper drainage pushing riders to a complete road-route trail. We suggest trailering and ride out of Wakefield to access our eastern system. Trails were in beautiful shape this weekend and we saw many riders enjoying them, THANK YOU! There will be tons of snow in the woods for a very long time. March may run its course warm, but April could be a very different story. Stay safe sledders!

We were the guys going the other way watching this on the other side. Glad it wasn’t that bad of a crossing.

Arin Theis Zach Nelson is this where that guy was stuck?
