    Western U.P. Trail Report – Western U.P. Bureau – 03/12

    Western U P Snowmobile Report
    March 8, 2019
    Snowmobile report

    Rain is in the forecast for Wednesday and Thursday, how much we get remains to be seen. We have plenty of snow so hopefully this will not do much to our trails. We have snow in the forecast for Friday so things should be okay for the weekend. Temps for the weekend will be in the low 30’s with the lows in the teens. What an awesome time to come up and enjoy some of the greatest trails we have had in years. DON’T MISS OUT!!!!!

    THE GOGEBIC RANGE TRAIL AUTHORITY reports on 3/10/19 grooming is ongoing. If you see a groomer please pull over and let them pass. Overall our trails are excellent!

    Trail 2 from Hurley to Ramsay Crossing is excellent was last groomed 3/10/19. Please do not ride on sidewalks near Holiday and try to keep the noise down in town.

    Trail 2 from Ramsay Crossing to Wakefield is very good was last groomed 3/10/19. PLEASE REMEBER TO CROSS US HWY 2 IN THE CORRECT LANE OF TRAVEL, DO NOT BLOCK HWY TURN LANES!

    Wakefield to Marenisco is excellent was lasted groomed 3/10/19. This trail is a mix of twisty but wide forest roads (13mi) and 12mi of rail bed to Marenisco. This beautiful trail is 12 miles of unplowed wide logging roads that wind their way through the Gogebic Range Hills before running 10 miles of rail-trail to Marenisco. PLEASE STOP AT ALL STOP SIGNS ON THE RAIL TRAIL! There is a significant logging presence on FR-8100 with dozens of log trucks hauling out daily. Last week an accident occurred with a log truck. Stop at the stop signs!!

    Trail 8 from Bingos to Tula Crossing is excellent and was last groomed 3/10/19. Bingo’s is closed and has no gas….

    Trail 160 from Walmart to Montreal River (WI) is excellent last groomed 3/7/19. This is their most scenic trail and a treat to ride! Stay on the trail in the farm fields. Over 25 landowners are involved to make this trail a reality, please respect them and ride responsibly.

    Trail 11S is in excellent condition it was last groomed 3/10/19. It is groomed all the way to the WI line. This 17 mile long trail has 2 stop signs and is a wilderness tour. The southern 3 miles get thinner, but remains in good condition.

    Trail 11 N is closed indefinitely.

    THE GOGEBIC AREA GROOMERS Wednesday, March 6th

    Wednesday, March 6th

    Gogebic Area Groomers have been out hitting all our trails and reporting that they are in great shape. Temps look to increase over the next few days – but nothing to be concerned about given the massive amounts of snow we’ve received. In addition,John Dee says that we may be in for another foot of snow this weekend and possibly even a heavy St. Paddy’s Day Storm.
