Eagle River Snowmobile Trail Report

Eagle River area trails are in VERY GOOD condition, are groomed, and we’ve got three inches plus of new fresh snow.

Nightly grooming continues on trails in and around Eagle River. With all the cold weather the base is really hard. We got some fresh loose snow, and the trails are smooth!  Hard base is covered with loose snow on top.

There are corners that are blown out and really icy, so riding conditions are icy under the new snow. Your sled could slide around especially in the back end as you ride, even on the straightaways, so please slow down everywhere, but especially in the corners so your sled does not skate out to the wrong side of the trail.

Remember that a stop sign on the trail means “stop!”

You will also see “driveway ahead” and “yield” signs. Please slow down and look left and right before you cross the driveways. When a trail runs parallel to a road, the speed limit on that trail is the same as the road. So as you ride through Eagle River on Trail 13, if the road speed limit is 25, you need to go 25 on the trail, too. As the speed picks up on the road you can also speed up, but remember that the night time speed limit, regardless, is 55 from dusk to dawn.

Trail Alerts:

Logging began February 4 on Trail 10W/13N. The section starts where the trail is on Croker Road to where the trail turns right on the way to the Wisconsin River bridge on the west side. Coming from the east, it is after you cross the Wisconsin River bridge. It will be marked, and there will be logging equipment in there. The logging crew has done extra marking as it is winding on that trail section. Slow down.

The Eagle River Lake trail and Catfish Lake loop are marked and open. Stay by the barrels. There are some bumps out there from the traffic so be careful. We do not groom the lake trails as the equipment is too heavy. Remember not all lakes are trails.
