Michigan Trail Report


Ironwood Trail Report – Gogebic Range Trail Authority – 03/06

Boy was last night’s sunset something else! If you haven’t experienced a late winter sunset in the U.P., YOU NEED TO! Trails are seeing very little traffic and they remain in the best shape of the season.

We are still working to widen sections of trails, but all have been groomed 4-6times (8-12 passes) or more since the last big blast of snow and they are all flat and fast!!

There is another storm forecast for Sunday, looking like 6-12" so far but we shall see.

Trail 2 from Ironwood to Marenisco and trail 8 was groomed yesterday. Everything is flat smooth and ready for you!

Grooming continues and trails are rated as very good with 5% of the trails rated as fair. Trails in the woods are nearly un-phased by the temps as this grooming video from Mike Secord of U.P. Engraving, LLC shows. There is a 1/4 mile long section of logging that was pretty bare earlier in the week on 11S, but 3-4 inches of fresh snow has fallen to ease road concerns. Riding this weekend will be fantastic, come on up! Wakefield VFW Post 9084 Beach Party this weekend! ... See MoreSee Less

Shout out to Krist Oil in Bessemer, MI for helping us keep sledders cool and off pavement. As this picture shows, Bessemer is committed to making your ride the best possible. There is another street section they allow us to keep snow covered for riders and to protect the road surface. This is NOT done for you to ride fast, this is to help keep your skegs from disappearing this time of the year. As President for the last four years, this is by far the least amount of concrete riders have had to deal with. Kudos to DSM Dave Stark and plow man Bob for making a positive impact on rider's experience! C&M Oil just east of them also is helping us keep gravel and concrete covered as you get through town. Dreamwork is teamwork! #SnowmobileBessemer ... See MoreSee Less

Finally! Nice to see them finally playing ball. Hopefully this becomes a season long thing next year

We want to spend our money in your town. Thanks for thinking of us.

Kudos! Kwik Trip here has 2 stations on the trail in town and refuses to even leave a spot to park. Let alone the fact they will only carry Castrol 2 stroke oil... I hate Kwik Trip lol

Nice.....noticed that when I stopped to and from 160. Now if they would only fix the leaky hose on that closest pump🤨

I wish more gas stations would do this!

Havent beenbthere in years, but that's awesome deal there!!

Thank you for all your hard work.

That’s awesome!

Thank you

Thank you!

Groomers were out over night working hard! Club President Steve spent 7 hours grooming between Highway 2 and Sunday Lake in Wakefield. Much snow was spread around and corners flattened. Mike S of U.P. Engraving, LLC groomed 11S. No sleds were seen during the runs. Trails are in VERY GOOD condition with a short 2 mile section near Wakefield as "Fair" due to snirty snow. Even if we get no new snow before the weekend trails will still be in great shape! We continue to work on road routes grooming banks down to keep sleds off (and from damaging) pavement. ...
