Snowmobile Trail Conditions Winchester, WI Presque Isle, WI Boulder Jct., WI

Friday, February 22nd, 2008

Today was just a quick ride to breakfast, then a short ways down trail 6 East towards Boulder Junction and then back. The trails were in decent shape, but the corners were starting to get icy. There was a good bit of traffic today and the trails were starting to show it. We took 6 East from Winchester to Presque Isle and ate breakfast at the Outpost cafe. After breakfast we continued East on trail 6 for another 20 miles before we turned around and took the same route home.

Snowmobile Trail Conditions Winchester, WI Presque Isle, WI Boulder Jct., WI Sayner, WI Land O Lakes, WI Watersmeet, MI Marenisco, MI

Saturday, February 16th, 2008

After yesterdays long ride, we took it easy today. We started off by going to Sayner, WI “The Birthplace of the Snowmobile”. We took trail 6 East through Winchester and Presque Isle and hooked up with trail 15 South through Boulder Junction.

The trails were good until we got through Boulder Junction. This was a holiday weekend and there was TONS of traffic in that area. The trails were decent, but not as good as what we had yesterday. After arriving in Sayner, we noticed the snowmobile exhibit was closed, so we just peeked through the window. We then ate lunch at the Sayner pub. After lunch we rode across Plum lake, taking the same path news anchor Randy Salerno and Scott Hirshey took prior to their very publicized crash. After crossing the lake we continued on trail 11 North to trail 7 and then hooked up with trail 6 East again. We ended up at Bents Camp and noticed they were having a radar run. It looked like a lot of fun, so we decided to stop and check it out. After 1/2 hour of watching the sleds run, we headed across the Cisco chain and hooked up with trail 13 North and stopped in to Rogers Bar.

After a couple sodas, we took trail 13 North to trail 2 West and made our way for home.

Snowmobile Trail Conditions Sayner, WI, Boulder Jct., WI Conover, WI Phelps, WI Star Lake, WI Land O Lakes, WI Watersmeet, MI

Tuesday, February 5th, 2008

Today we decided to head South and try out some of the Wisconsin trails. We headed West on trail 6 towards Boulder Junction and then went South.

These trails were in good shape, but the corners were a bit icy.

After arriving in Boulder Junction, we got gas and made our way towards Sayner. As we left Boulder Junction, the trails were pretty dirty and on the choppy side. There was TON of traffic in the area and that would explain the bumps. We ate a few pizzas for lunch at the Sayner pub and then went East across Plum lake.

That trail took us into Conover where we gassed up again. We continued East until we got to Phelps.

After riding through Phelps we headed for the Gateway Lodge in Land O Lakes. One of the sleds was having a bogie wheel problem so we dropped it off at the Lodge and went out on another ride. This ride took us down trail 6 West again to Bents Camp. We went across the Cisco Chain and then to Rogers bar. After a soda there, we got on trail 2 East to Watersmeet and then trail 3 South to Land O lakes. Overall the trails were in very good condition. I haven’t seen the Wisconsin trails this good in 4-5 seasons!
