Official Trail Report:
All Washburn County ATV trails are officially open for the season. Trail conditions will be variable and riders may encounter wet conditions and soft trails in some areas. Please tread lightly and PLEASE stay on the designated trail surface.
Also be aware that not all trails have been graded for the start of the season and riders may encounter portions of rough trails. Riders may also encounter minor trail washouts; Please ride with caution.
The Wild River Trail between Spooner and Trego is closed due to railroad re-construction operations. A detour will be established prior to Friday morning and signage will be in place to direct trail users around the impacted area.
As always, once open, trails will close if fire danger is rated at “very high” or higher. Please refer to the link below for fire danger updates: http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/forestfire/restrictions.html
Wild Rivers State Trail Update:
Railroad operations staff have assured us that there will be a detour around the construction project that is currently ongoing, adjacent to the Wild River Trail, between Spooner and Trego. This re-route will be in the vicinity of Dilly Lake & Schleife Roads. Trail traffic might be routed across Highway 53 and connecting into the west side of Trego at the Mobil Station. More information will be available later this week.
Detour signs will be in place for the Friday a.m. May 22 ATV trail opener. If the construction project is delayed, Washburn County has secured a temporary road route connection as a backup plan.
