    THE GOGEBIC RANGE TRAIL AUTHORITY REPORTS:

    All trails have been freshly groomed, conditions are good to very good.
    Please stay on your side of the trails, we want everyone to be safe.

    Trail 2 from Hurley to Ramsay US-2 Crossing is good to very good. This was last groomed this morning. You will still encounter some thin spots along with icy corners. Use caution when riding.
    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 Road. Tickets will be issued if you ride on this closed trail.

    Trail 2 from Ramsay Crossing to Wakefield is fair to good. The trail by Sunday Lake in Wakefield is thin and has icy corners.

    Trail 2 from Wakefield to Marenisco is good to very good. Watch for icy corners from Wakefield to US HWY. 2 trail crossing.

    Trail 8 from Bingo’s to Tula Crossing is good to very good. Please stay on your side of the trail and use caution on corners.

    Trail 160 from Walmart to Montreal River(WI) is good to very good. This is a very scenic trail with spectacular views. ENJOY!! There is logging near the Lake Road area, please slow down, remember logging trucks have the right of way.

    Trail 11S is fair to very good. There are still a few thin spots on this trail and it also needs to have more brushing done. Please use caution. Once you cross the bridge within 2 miles there are some rough spots, they are snow covered but we still need more snow.
