LAKE GOGEBIC AREA UPDATE via Hoop N Holler Tavern –

We know people are itching at the chance to ride snowmobile with the recent snow we received and another dumping tomorrow but please hold off until Sunday when trails officially open. There are still people deer hunting and easements to cross private properties don’t start until December 1st. Please, be courteous and wait.

LAKE GOGEBIC AREA UPDATE via Gogebic Area Grooming​ –

11-28-19 – Happy Thanksgiving from everyone at Gogebic Area Grooming.

Haven’t posted much lately, but we’re out breaking trails the last two weeks. We got some Significant snowfall around the Lake Gogebic area. Now we all know they’re some diehards out there, and come the 1st of December, you’re going to want to ride. Even though the trails are open, we still have a lot of work to do. If you do ride, wet spots and tough terrain are on the trails. It’s a ride at your own risk this early in the game.

Please take note to the changes to our following trails. Some are temporarily changed and some are permanently changed

Trail 102 has a new reroute about 4 miles before trail 11. The trail is marked well and the reroute was a very nice turn out. However it sounds like it will change again next year. (Temporary)

Trail 13 north is now rerouted. You will now start on trail 13 towards Rockland from trail 8 just East of Bergland. (Permanent)

Trail 13 south has logging. The first part of December, you will have to run East Shore road all the way past the Root Cellar. When the logging is done, we can open it back up. We where advised that this might be into the first of the year before they are done. The loggers advised us that they would work as hard as they can you help us get our trail back in use. (Temporary) Past the Root Cellar, we also have more logging. You will have to travel on East Shore Rd approximately 2 mile further then before to get back onto trail 13. A new reroute will take place. We ask you to follow the signs posted and marked 13. (Permanent for 2019-2020 season)

Trail 100 is also in the logging process. This is between Stagecouch Rd and the slate river (vary end of Lake Gogebic) Good News though, we got Marshall Creek Bridge Fixed and we can get to Marenisco from trail 100. (Permanent for 2019-2020 season)

Trail 1 from Trail 100 to trail 8 is closed until further notice. Logging is also taking place until the end of December. You still can access the Gogebic Lodge and we plan to maintain it up to the lodge so we can get up and running to open trail 1. We are in the process to do a reroute to the Ethalwood Grade and up to M-28 onto trail 8. We will keep you posted when this opens as well. (Temporary)

As of right now the only way to get from Bergland to Marenisco is take trail 13 to 100 to Marenisco or 13 to trail 2. DO NOT ride Lake Gogebic in the beginning of season. The ice just went on a few weeks ago!!!

Marenisco area is in good shape far as where the trails are going to stay from the past years.

Please pass this on to fellow snowmobilers to warn them about the different trails they may not be used to. We will mark this the best we can, and we ask of the sledders if they find a spot confusing to let us know so we can fix it right away.

Stay safe and have a Happy Thanksgiving 🍽🦃

Trail # 1 Update (Ethelwood Project)

Gogebic Area Grooming can not thank the volunteers enough for making it possible to clear Trail # 1. They worked hard for 2 days brushing and signing to get this opened up. We have enough snow this early in the season to make snow bridges to get across the wet and washed out areas. We are working hard with private Land Associations to get this trail open by Christmas! Here our some pictures of how bad it was. Also a Thanks to Brian with the Gogebic Lodge to help take charge on getting this accomplished.
