Ironwood Trail Report – Gogebic Range Trail Authority – 11/27

We had two days of thawing rain last week. The 12-20" of snow we had from Nov. 9th is now 2-6" base. Many water holes opened up, but we did have a good 24 hours of freezing before the next insulating blanket of snow arrives tonight.

We will begin rolling and packing trails the end of this week and all weekend.

Remember, moisture content of Lake Effect Snow is typically low which means 10" in the morning can be 4" after settling all day in the sun/wind.

Trails CANNOT OPEN until 12/1. Think snow!

Please, whether you're from out of town or if you live in town this part of 160 is not for ORV riding. 160 starts in the powers area, so you will have to either trailer or ride the roads. The fine is very expensive when caught on private property, that's called trespassing.

C&M Oil is a Trailside gas stop and full service station with exceptional mechanics. They have been long time supporters of responsible motorized recreation and their 91 no ethanol pumps out front are ready for you! ... See MoreSee Less

Ironwood Trail Report – 03/02

After grooming 56 miles of our trail system last night with our lone groomer trails are in incredible condition for nearly 50 degree weather this week.

As of 9am CST Friday Morning trails are rated GOOD system wide, many spots still excellent, see link below for full report! Our typical thin areas are there, but with 9 degrees last night and the groomer running from 5pm until 10am today and also repeating that tonight will provide Saturday with great riding conditions (all things considered).

We worked diligently to cover the FEW bare spots with fresh snow and will continue tonight. There is a TON of snow in the woods so we have a lot to borrow and work with grooming wise. John Dee Snow Central has the bullseye on us for 4-8″+ early next week so we are smiling with current March riding conditions! See specific sections below for detailed reports.

PLEASE STAY ON THE TRAIL! PLEASE DON’T STEAL OUR TRAIL SIGNS. Hard to believe we have to continue echoing these issues, we are so lucky we have some of the most friendly landowners around. Please remind yourselves and riders in your group to check road crossings TWICE (at least!) before venturing across roadways. If traveling on a county road ROW keep speeds slow to avoid any issues.
