Western U.P. Trail Report – Western U.P. Bureau – 03/25

Officially the trails are open until April 1st. All clubs are no longer grooming due to the weather. You can still get some last minute riding in which would be fair. You will encounter icy spots, running water and some standing water so use caution if you are riding for one last time. Thank you for the great season and we hope to see you again next year. Have a great summer.

THE GOGEBIC RANGE TRAIL AUTHORITY Monday 25th. I have no new report from the GRTA but grooming has stopped due to the weather.

If you see Jerry Nezworski "Nezzie" out today be sure to wish that man a happy birthday! He is pictured on the right along with his partner in crime Calvin Kangas, who we lost this past summer. As you can see, Jerry is no fun to be around!! (J/K!). It's been a tough year to stay motivated with the loss of our dear friend, but Jerry has picked up the motivation torch and continues to light fire after fire with it. He asks that you wish him a happy birthday with a donation - any amount - to his St. Jude's Fundraiser on his personal page. Jerry is the "Bread Man" in these here parts delivering Bimbo Bakeries USA goods to businesses across the western U.P. and Iron Range of Wisconsin. Come buy him a beer tomorrow at our club meeting, 6pm @ Aurora Club in Ironwood. #Jerrynezworski #Birthday #ClubFamily #thankyouJerry ... See MoreSee Less

We continue to execute our trail-permit funded trail improvement projects, despite the weather! Thank you to Dean Pearson Logging & Excavating for working with club member Deb F. to extend two culverts on GRTA Portion of trail 8 (we manage the western most portion of trail 8). The projects helped move the trail 14' further away from the road to dramatically increase the safety of the trail. It also helps us be better teammates with the county's plowing operations. We still have one very important project to kick off, which should be soon! Way to go GRTA Team! #mondaymotivation #neverquit #forthetrails #fortheriders #snowmobile #club #allvolunteer ...

U.P. Thunder Riders Snowmobile Club

Did you know, Clubs are down to 4-6 people doing work like this. All the clubs are dealing with this, not just one or two. Just think of the miles and miles of trails you ride, then think of 4 guys/girls clearing 72 miles. If you ride PLAN a fall weekend and help a club!! Just ask them, email, message what ever it takes lend a hand, any day of the week! They'd probably try to get you a deal on lodging too. Don't get us wrong, membership money is very important but without man/woman power you can't use it. ... See MoreSee Less

True across Wisconsin, too! 😞

This is reality everywhere. Our club/ county as well. Same 10 people do 99% of the work.

Amen!! 4-5 doing 109 miles.............by hand!

And this post will fall mainly on deaf ears. 😥 But just wait for the cries of "why aren't the trails open yet?" and "I scratched my (precious) hood on a tree branch." 😥

Same in Utah. Younger people don't join

I have some time available periodically to help around the Wautoma area, PM me and I can let you know or give you a number to call.

Nothing has changed in my 47 years of trails maintenance. Just keep on keepin on!

You make time to help maintain the trails I used to do it for some years I paid my trail dues I respected the trails

VERY good point...our club no different but we have been getting more and more help last few years, it’s almost like a fall club trail ride with ATVs (chainsaws,etc) for trail maintenance nowadays but that’s just fine with us..

The clubs would get more help and more money but its too bad they don't open the trails to ATV's

Can't you guys up there get people who have to do community service to help? Our club has done that in the past.

Like the guy just wrote do a fall fun ride with food and beverages along the way poker run eyc.with cleanup also all along the way.adv.it and maybe people will join in....

James Daoust, weekend of 10/26, let's find a club and go help!!

Guess I know what brad and I need to do

Matthew Hart

Dennis Kleman good message

I do trails too

Help is an issue everywhere. Nothing to haul or burn, even as occasional maintenance to clear out what you can't mow.

Thanks for your time and effort!

Maybe offer a free trail pass to any weekend help? I bet plenty from Wisconsin would come and help for a trail pass! Just a thought.

Western U.P. Trail Report – Western U.P. Bureau – 03/20

Well it looks like our season is starting to wind down. Temps for today will be a high of 39 and a low of 26. Thursday it will be a high of 43 low of 25 and Friday will be 34 and 16.

Trails crossing roadways and parking lots are bare. We still have a great base in the woods but with the thaw you will run into places with water. It is best to ride in early morning for late afternoon.

THE GOGEBIC RANGE TRAIL AUTHORITY Monday 3/18 8:00am CST: We groomed continuously over the weekend seeing many riders out enjoying what was likely the glast best h weekend of riding. The road route sections will become brutal as the snow recedes. However, there is tons of snow in the woods providing a lot of riding season left. Our entire trail system was groomed over the weekend, some of it twice. Friday we did receive 8-12 of Lake Effect snow, but with high 30fs it settled in quickly. LOTS OF RIDING REMAINS, there are just a few trouble spots. See below trail notes, but Trail 2 between Wakefield and US HWY 2 will have a 2 mile portion plowed up for logging. These guys have a job to do so please stay out of their way and if you meet on the trail yield to them!
WARNINGS AND NOTICES: RECENT RAINS: You may encounter ponding on trails and water flowing across or down trails. We have not had any reports of that yet, but riders are just starting to venture out. STAY OFF LAKES, there is 12-18 of slush sticking riders on Lake Gogebic and Sunday Lake in Wakefield. PLEASE STOP AT ALL STOP SIGNS, we have heard of log truck versus snowmobile accidents last Friday that cannot happen!! Pipelines and power lines are NOT public land! Please remember to ride RIGHT, ride TOGETHER, ride SOBER and only off-trail ride where you 100% know it is legal KNOW before you GO. Please keep speeds and noise low through towns.

Trail 2 from Hurley to Ramsay Crossing is excellent was last groomed 3/16/19. Please do not ride on sidewalks near Holiday and try to keep the noise down in town.

Trail 2 from Ramsay Crossing to Wakefield Last groomed 3/18/19. Prospect road ditch trail has been removed by the county to allow proper water drainage, the 3/4 of a mile of concrete is not for the faint of heart. We recommend trailering to Wakefield and catching the trail there. There are water holes near Blackjack Ski Resort. Be sure to stop and see Gabbro Falls by Blackjack ski hill, it is extremely impressive! THERE IS A NEW TRAFFIC PATTERN riders need to follow to cross highway 2, see the below map. Please travel slowly through this area and on this section of trail to Wakefield. It is tight and twisty.

Wakefield to Marenisco Last groomed 3/17/19. There are water holes around the Wakefield area, a short reroute was made around one but the others are across the whole trail. Ride extremely cautiously. There is tons of base yet on the trail!! There is logging on the trail 10 miles east of Wakefield near Great Lakes Road/Dump Road intersections. Please yield to logging crews!! This trail is a mix of twisty but wide forest roads (13mi) and 12mi of rail bed to Marenisco. This beautiful trail is 12 miles of unplowed wide logging roads that wind their way through the Gogebic Range Hills before running 10 miles of rail-trail to Marenisco. PLEASE STOP AT ALL STOP SIGNS ON THE RAIL TRAIL! There is a significant logging presence on FR-8100 with dozens of log trucks hauling out daily.

Trail 8 from Bingos to Tula Crossing Last groomed 3/16/19. Tons of base left. This trail is one of the most heavily traveled trails on our system, but we do groom it daily. Fast and wide trail as it is an unplowed county road we use. Itfs a super highway! Please note Bingofs is closed and has no gas.

Trail 160 from Walmart to Montreal River (WI) Last groomed 3/17/19. There are a few small water holes, but the trail remains in great shape. PLEASE stay on the trail through the farm fields. This is our most scenic trail and is a treat to ride! There are several scenic vistas on the trail such as Bald Mountain gNORTHh lookout viewing Madeline Island/ mouth of the Chequamegon Bay of Lake Superior, the Bald Mountain gSOUTHh lookout viewing Gogebic Range (Powderhorn, Copper Peak), the Montreal River Gorge look out and finally the amazing Superior Falls Waterfall Complex. Stay on the trail in the farm fields. Over 25 landowners are involved to make this trail a reality, please respect them and ride responsibly.

Trail 11S Overall Rating: Excellent
Last Groomed 3/17/19. The snow remains waist deep, riding will be available for a long time. This 17 mile long scenic trail has 2 stop signs and is a wilderness tour. It provides additional access to Lake Gogebic or Ironwood/Hurley depending on your route. Thank you to the Presque Isle SnoBunnies Snowmobile club whom we groom to in Vilas county. They have helped communicate conditions of this trail as it is one of the most distant ones from our grooming barn

Trail 11 N is closed indefinitely.

THE GOGEBIC AREA GROOMERS

Monday, March 18th
What a difference a day can make! Gogebic Area Groomers have reported that they are done for the season. Warm temps and wet spots are not conducive for grooming. We want to thank everyone who came to visit us this season. Itfs a sad time when we shut down for the season!! We appreciate all those who came to ride and we hope to see you back here again next season!!

WATERSMEET U.P. THUNDER RIDERS reports 3/18/19:
Trails are open until April 1
Groomers reported the trails are in excellent condition, all trails are being groomed.
The waterhole on Trail #2 27 miles west of Watersmeet is starting to open up again so use caution. ⚠ It’s just smart to ride with caution this time of the year anyway, you never know what’s around the next curve or how the same trail could have changed on your way back!!
Groomers will be running today/tonight and will continue to groom daily as the temperatures allow. Looks like we’ll be in the 40s by Wednesday.

PLEASE STAY ON MARKED TRAILS. RUNNING ON UNMARKED TRAILS CAN RESULT IN LOSING EASMENT OF THE TRAILS AND ALSO A POSSIBLE TICKET FOR YOU.

Gogebic Range Trail Authority - ORV & Snowmobile Club

We continue to execute our trail-permit funded trail improvement projects, despite the weather! Thank you to Dean Pearson Logging & Excavating for working with club member Deb F. to extend two culverts on GRTA Portion of trail 8 (we manage the western most portion of trail 8). The projects helped move the trail 14' further away from the road to dramatically increase the safety of the trail. It also helps us be better teammates with the county's plowing operations. We still have one very important project to kick off, which should be soon! Way to go GRTA Team! #mondaymotivation #neverquit #forthetrails #fortheriders #snowmobile #club #allvolunteer ...

Thank you to all that take the time to develop these trails. My husband and I spend all our extra time in the winter on the snowmobile trails riding trails in the winter is a beautiful experience. Can’t wait to see more trails arise Thank you again.

This is fantastic news...

U.P. Thunder Riders Snowmobile Club

Did you know, Clubs are down to 4-6 people doing work like this. All the clubs are dealing with this, not just one or two. Just think of the miles and miles of trails you ride, then think of 4 guys/girls clearing 72 miles. If you ride PLAN a fall weekend and help a club!! Just ask them, email, message what ever it takes lend a hand, any day of the week! They'd probably try to get you a deal on lodging too. Don't get us wrong, membership money is very important but without man/woman power you can't use it. ... See MoreSee Less

True across Wisconsin, too! 😞

This is reality everywhere. Our club/ county as well. Same 10 people do 99% of the work.

Amen!! 4-5 doing 109 miles.............by hand!

And this post will fall mainly on deaf ears. 😥 But just wait for the cries of "why aren't the trails open yet?" and "I scratched my (precious) hood on a tree branch." 😥

Same in Utah. Younger people don't join

I have some time available periodically to help around the Wautoma area, PM me and I can let you know or give you a number to call.

Nothing has changed in my 47 years of trails maintenance. Just keep on keepin on!

You make time to help maintain the trails I used to do it for some years I paid my trail dues I respected the trails

VERY good point...our club no different but we have been getting more and more help last few years, it’s almost like a fall club trail ride with ATVs (chainsaws,etc) for trail maintenance nowadays but that’s just fine with us..

The clubs would get more help and more money but its too bad they don't open the trails to ATV's

Can't you guys up there get people who have to do community service to help? Our club has done that in the past.

Like the guy just wrote do a fall fun ride with food and beverages along the way poker run eyc.with cleanup also all along the way.adv.it and maybe people will join in....

James Daoust, weekend of 10/26, let's find a club and go help!!

Guess I know what brad and I need to do

Matthew Hart

Dennis Kleman good message

I do trails too

Help is an issue everywhere. Nothing to haul or burn, even as occasional maintenance to clear out what you can't mow.

Thanks for your time and effort!

Maybe offer a free trail pass to any weekend help? I bet plenty from Wisconsin would come and help for a trail pass! Just a thought.
