Trail Reports

Thursday, January 26th, 2022: It’s 21 degrees & cloudy in Lakewood at 10:00am, with the low tonight predicted to be around 10 degrees. The trails continue to be in great shape even with all the traffic we have been seeing at the Lakewood Trailhead all week. We rate them to be Good to Very Good, with some icy corners and hills. Please be advised that PBR Trail 14 and Trail 16 between Locators 675 & 677 has been re-opened. You may still see some activity in that area as you approach it, so please be careful.

All the snowmobile traffic has really helped our area’s Business Boosters.  So, we really want to thank all the folks who spend their time and money to ride throughout Northern Oconto County.  We also want to remind everyone of our upcoming Snow Fun Day event that will be taking place this Saturday, January 28, 2023 at Waubee Lake Lodge. The event will run from 2pm to 7pm. We hope to see some of you there.

If you want to get an update on the conditions of the other trails in the area, please visit the Oconto County website at https://www.ocontocounty.org/trail-reports/.

Saturday, January 21, 2023: Please be advised that a section of PBR Trail 14 and Trail 16 between Locators 675 & 677 has been CLOSED. The Forest gate at Locator 677 has been closed with appropriate signage. The gate at Locator 675 is frozen in from the water, so we’re dropping trees to act as a gate, effectively closing off the that section of the trail. When you approach the closure, you can choose to make a turn to another trail, or turn around. Please do not attempt to get around the gates or the trees. We are working on a temporary solution to this problem.

 

Friday, January 19, 2023: It’s 29 degrees in Lakewood at 3:00pm. We received 8 inches of moderately wet snow starting last night into this morning. The trail base was in fairly good shape before the snow, but lacked snow for cooling and lubrication. However, all that is good now. Be aware that the temperatures tonight will only be in the low 20’s, so the trails will be slippery in the corners. In addition, please be advised that the “Women on Snow” group will also be riding our trails, as well. All three groomers will be out making the trails the best they can be for your riding enjoyment.
