All trails in the Eagle River, Wis. area are open with two inches of fresh snow and more promised the first week of January 2013. Catfish Lake Loop and Eagle Lake Trails are now both marked with the orange reflective barrels. You can ride safely by the barrels, but do not stray from them. The Vilas County Sheriff's Department reported that a group went through the ice near the thoroughfare on Eagle Lake. Remember only the area marked is safe. Alternate Trail 13S is open once again. This is the direct route trail between Eagle River and Three Lakes. To keep this trail open do not do any off trail riding. Trail Boss Tom went out and inspected the Wisconsin River Bridge and smoothed the roughness out. He saw no slush or wet areas. You can access up to the moment conditions by calling any of the contact numbers listed at the end of this report, OR going online at www.eagleriver.org.
