WINTER RECREATION TRAIL REPORT
UPDATED: FEBRUARY 19, 2019
MARINETTE COUNTY SNOWMOBILE, ATV/UTV TRAIL UPDATE AS OF 2/19/19
Marinette County Trails are VERY GOOD/EXCELLENT!
All the clubs are grooming. All clubs are putting in long hours in the groomers. Watch for groomers working out on the trails. They can be out day or night. Give them the right away. Get safely out of the way or off the trail until they pass or the driver signals you to pass by.
There are 4 clubs that allow ATV/UTV winter use; Dun-Good, Pemenee, Near North and Iron Snow Shoe.
Our trails have all been groomed and are in excellent riding condition. More snow coming tomorrow which will result in terrific conditions. ATV’s & UTV’s on Near North trails are allowed. Watch for signs
Trails are open, groomed and in very good/excellent condition. Use caution in a couple of spots: On the Trout Haven trail, there is a water hole 2 1/2 miles south of Dunbar. There could be some ice around it. Trail 5 S. (Pembine trail) has several icy spots. Spur Lake trail has a couple icy spots . Goodman and south to Silver Cliff is good. Highway 8 west trail is being groomed today (Tuesday). Overall trails are in good shape. Fresh snowfall tomorrow should really help with all icy spots.
PEMENEE RIVER RIDERS:
Norway trail was groomed yesterday, trail to the Dunbar junction & Niagara trail are being groomed today. Trail conditions are good!! Watch for logging in the area of Barlow Lake and Forest Rd 1003. Use caution in this area.
RANGER CITY RIDERS: (snowmobile only) -
Our trails are in excellent condition. Our groomer operators will be out throughout the week and will have the whole trail system groomed by the end of the week. Come ride as the trail conditions are great! Remember RCR clubhouse parking lot is a designated park and ride. As always please enjoy and ride safe. PLEASE NOTE LOGGING OPERATIONS: Our north end of the East Trail between Marek Road and Forest Road 404 is currently being logged. The trail does have snow cover and is in good riding conditions through the small section of logging.

IRON SNOW SHOE: (snowmobile & atv/utv trails)
Trail Conditions: Excellent. Snow Cover: 20 inches plus.
Another fabulous weekend in the books…also, another one coming up. We are forecasted to get about five more inches of snow this week. Our groomers have been out non-stop trying to keep up with all the snow and with you as well. We are noticing a lot of deer on the trail due to the large amount of snow in the woods. Please do not chase them. Give them a moment and they will get out of your way. Lake crossings still are safe, however, may be slushy and rough. Trails are very good…Enjoy them.
