Sawyer County ATV Trail Report, June 30, 2022:
We are expecting periods of rain throughout the upcoming July 4th weekend – which is always appreciated to keep the dust levels down, especially on our gravel-based trails and roads within our trail system. Also puts a bit of fun water/mud on our rustic and dirt trails!
Bulldozers have still been out on some of the Seeley Hills trails, as well as east towards Moose Lake (Trail 5). Some of these trails will have some follow-up grading done as well, to further smooth out and crest the trail base for water drainage. The bulldozing may dislodge larger rocks from the trail beds – riders can really help by stopping to throw these off the trail.
The Tuscobia is getting a dose of new signage to help riders better locate destinations as well as help identify road crossings. This is a work in progress and there is more to come.
Many of the local resorts as well as the Casino, are holding various 4th of July celebrations over the upcoming weekend. Most are accessible by ATV/UTV – but if you have questions give me a call/text at 715-558-8966 and I’ll try to help you out.
Our ATV trail map is available both on Trail Treker HOME (trailtreker.com) or you can download a digital copy of the Sawyer County trail map Of course, you can pick up a paper map at most local establishments for a small donation.
Not all re-routes are on the map.– so watch for signage wherever you ride; Trail 5 near Wolf’s Eagle Lodge is a permanent re-route, as well as a temporary re-route around the Connors Creek bridge in the Flambeau Forest.
About road routes – we’ve had reports of people riding where they are not supposed to. Please be aware that law enforcement is sure to be out watching for this during the upcoming weekend.
If a road is not marked with the green/white ATV ROUTE signage – please stay off it.
The walking/bike path from the Casino over to Round Lake School Rd is NOT for ATV/UTV use – it is signed as such and please do not use it.
State Highways (numbered highways) are NOT legal to ride on unless clearly marked as a route.
And again, our road routes are not permanent routes – they can be taken away at any time – so PLEASE, obey the regulatory signs, keep noise/speed down when in residential neighborhoods and help us keep these routes open. They connect our trail systems together and without them, your riding experience will not be as satisfying.
Have a great holiday weekend riding!
