Michigan Trail Report


Western U.P. Trail Report – Western U.P. Bureau – 12/06

We have a winter weather advisory in effect for today until noon. They are calling for 2-4 inches of new snow with the western areas getting a possible 6 inches. Temps will be in the teens today and Friday with single digits at night. This will start to help with freezing our wet areas.

The Gogebic Range Trail Authority – reports conditions are poor. Expect early season riding.

Trail 2 from Hurley to Ramsay Crossing has been packed and panned and is in fair condition. From Ramsay Crossing to Wakefield is poor. There is water flowing between Blackjack and Indianhead Mountain. Wakefield to Marenisco is poor and has not been rolled.

Trail 8 from Bingo’s to Tula Crossing is poor and has not been rolled.

Trail 160 is closed

Trail 11S – from Wakefield to Winchester, WI is poor. This section has some deep water holes and lots of mud.

Trail 11N Wakefield to South Boundary Rd is closed indefinitely.

Gogebic Area Grooming – reports conditions are poor. Groomers were out on the East side of Lake Gogebic from Bergland to the Root Cellar Trail 13 and also on Trail 1 from Marenisco to the Ojibway Rd. Groomers are trying to pack and freeze down the wet areas. The railroad grade is rideable but very low on snow. Most swamps and water crossings are still open. Expect early season riding

Watersmeet U P Thunder Riders reports conditions are poor. The trails are officially open. Please ride with caution it is early season riding. We will be out as soon as there is enough snow to start packing a base.

Gogebic Range Trail Authority - ORV & Snowmobile Club

The rail-trail section from Jackson Road to Country Club Road in Ironwood received some much needed shaping and is PAID FOR BY CLUB FUNDS AS THIS TRAIL IS NOT YET A MDNR ORV TRAIL APPROVED TO RECEIVE ORV TRAIL-PERMIT FUNDING. Dean Pearson construction & logging worked all day reclaiming gravel and doing what he could to reestablish ditches for drainage issues. Please stay off the trail due to on-going work, many large rocks, roots and logs could be on the trail awaiting a final skimming clean up run. We will have up-coming club trash pick up events as well as a signing event. We need more active members! PLEASE join us at our next event and feel how good it is to do something together for a greater good. Sacrifice an afternoon working with new friends instead of riding, it is key to our future trail expansions! #joinus #thisclubbuildstrails #dogoodfeelgood ... See MoreSee Less

Since this is a designated snowmobile trail, not a designated ORV trail, this repair could qualify for ORV damaged trail restoration funds through the MIDNR. Worth checking in to.

Say ya to da UP! Spent a lot of time there, beautiful.

This beautiful.

I really enjoyed Longfellow Country. Cross country skiing is excellent in the county woods. The trails are groomed and you can watch the next generation learning to ski and Nordic jumping. Ironwood is the place to be in winter or fall the colors are gorgeous.
