    The Gogebic Range Trail Authority reports:

    12/28/2017

    Overall conditions are very good to fair, fair trails just have thin snow coverage. Trails are icy especially on corners so please use caution.

    Trail 2 from Hurley to Ramsay US-2 Crossing:
    Overall rating is good to very good. Thin spots on trail exist, but overall the trail is flat and smooth. The rail-bed trail ENDS on the east side of the Keystone Bridge. The club grooms the bridge to maintain it for local access. The "old" trail to Wakefield is closed east of Verona Rd. and anyone caught riding it will be ticketed.

    Trial 2 from Ramsay Crossing to Wakefield:
    Overall rating is fair to very good. Nearly all water holes are gone except for one east of Blackjack. The hill climbs to Indianhead Big Snow Resorts are snow packed and smooth. Corners are icy due to thin snow, so use caution.

    Trail 2 from Wakefield to Marenisco:
    Overall rating is good. The pipeline from Trail 2 & 8 intersection has thin snow and some now frozen water holes. Use caution. Use caution 2 miles west of Heart Lake Road, there is a culvert clogged which is causing a trench across the trails. Plans are to get out and fix it this week. Snow depth will diminish as you travel from Wakefield to Marenisco.

    Trail 8 from Bingo’s to Tula Crossing:
    Overall rating is very good. CAUTION!!!! Trail 8 from GRTA turn around at Underwood Tower Road and east is not groomed. The Gogebic Area Groomers are working on getting this area to freeze. Please use extreme caution in this area, it is frozen water holes.

    Trail 160 from Walmart to Montreal River(WI):
    Overall rating Opening 12/28. There are some thin spots so use caution. You will also encounter some active logging near the Lake Road area, please go slow, logging trucks have the right of way.

    Trial 11S:
    Overall rating is open and is fair to very good. The final 4.4 miles to Winchester, WI is ungroomed at this time, will be going out today. There are some thin spots so again use caution.

    Trail 100 on the south side of the lake is closed due to logging for the season.

    Trail 1 south of West Shore Resort to Marenisco is open and has been packed, but needs more snow for us to groom.

    Trail 1 south from Marenisco to Presque Isle is open and has been packed but needs more snow.

    Trail 13 south of the Root Cellar needs to be brushed.
