Wakefield to Marenisco is excellent was lasted groomed 2/26/19. 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. Last week an accident occurred with a log truck. Stop at the stop signs!!

Trail 160 from Walmart to Montreal River (WI) is excellent last groomed 2/27/19. This is their most scenic trail and a treat to ride! 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 11 N is closed indefinitely.

THE GOGEBIC AREA GROOMERS report from 2/25/19. We received over 20” of snow with our most recent blizzard. Gogebic Area Grooming will be heading out to break trails soon, but they have one groomer down due to mechanical issues. Parts are being ordered today they hope to have it up and running by Wednesday. Groomers ask that you please be patient as it is going to take some effort to get the trails back in shape. We will update when we know that groomers are heading out. Temps are brisk today and don’t get much past the mid teens. Snow (again) in the forecast for Wednesday and then on Friday.

Please be safe and use caution and good judgment.
