    THE GOGEBIC RANGE TRAIL AUTHORITY REPORTS:
    01/31/2018
    One of our groomers is down for repairs. We don’t know what the timeline is for getting it repaired. Be patient we now have only one groomer to work with, we will get to all the trails when we can.
    Overall 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 on the morning of the 31st… 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. The decent from Indianhead Mountain to Wakefield as you travel eastbound on trail 2 needs more snow. 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 good 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.

    LAKE GOGEBIC AREA GROOMER REPORT was last reported on the 2/1/18.
    Trail Conditions:
    Good News: The DNR has given approval for us to reopen Trail 100 to East Shore Road which puts snowmobilers within a 1/4 mi of Lake Gogebic. Groomers are out on it right now and it is in good shape (4.5 mi from trail 13 to East Shore Rd).

    Trail 13: Good to very good. Trail 100 is open and has been groomed from Trail 13 to the
    East Shore Rd. From there you can follow left to Slate River/ Lake Gogebic and if you make a right you can run East Shore Road. Received some snow and hopefully, that will cover bare spots on the roads.
    Trail 1 to Presque is in fair condition and recently groomed.
    Not much base and about ½ down dirt are showing.
    Trail 1 and 13 are being groomed frequently as we have stationed one of our groomers in Marenisco!
    Trail 1 N/Corridor 8: groomed and in very good condition.
    Trail 102 in good to the very good condition.
    Trail 8 East has been groomed, because of weather, it could not be groomed all way. That will be groomed weather permitting.

    U.P. THUNDER RIDERS OF WATERSMEET GROOMERS REPORT:

    Trails are fair to good. We do have some thin areas and icy corners so use caution. The groomers are running daily.

    Trail 3 north of trail 2 to bond falls – good thin areas and icy corners
    Trail 3 north of Bond falls – good
    Trail 2 west of Watersmeet- good with thin areas
