Lake Gogebic Area has received over a foot of snow so far this week and our temp this morning was 12 degrees. Temps are going to warm up this weekend, but look to drop back down early party of next week
Trails are being groomed daily in most of the Lake Gogebic Area. Groomers are reporting all trails in the Lake Gogebic Area to be in excellent to good condition and wet spots have frozen over.
Trail 1N: Good to excellent.
Trail 1S: Gogebic Area Grooming and their volunteers were out for 2 days clearing Trail 1 on the West Shore. There is enough snow to make snow bridges to get across the wet and washed out areas and hoping to have this trail open by Christmas!
Trails 13 North and South All trails on South end being groomed and excellent to good.
Past the Root Cellar, there is more logging. You will have to travel on East Shore Rd approximately 2 mile further then before to get back onto trail 13. A new reroute will take place. Please follow the signs marked 13. (Permanent Re-Route for the 2019-2020 Season).
Trail 8W between Bergland and Wakefield – most all wet spots have closed over. Good condition.
Trail 8W: is open and snow cover is good.
Trail 102: trail 102 has been broken and there is a lot of snow. There is a new reroute about 4 miles before trail 11. The trail is marked well and the reroute was a very nice turn out. (Temporary Re-Route)
Trail 100: Logging is happening between Stagecouch Rd and the Slate River (very end of Lake Gogebic) Marshall Creek Bridge has been fixed so you can get to Marenisco from trail 100. (Permanent for 2019-2020 season)
Trail 1 from Trail 100 to Trail 8: Closed until further notice as logging is taking place until the end of December. You still can access the Gogebic Lodge and we plan to maintain it up to the Lodge, so we can get up and run.
Please stay on the trails, respect private property, do not drink and drive, and above all else, drive safely. The signs on the trails are there for rider’s safety so please DO NOT remove or destroy them.
