Minocqua Area and Northern Wisconsin
Welcome to the Minocqua Area - Nature's Original Water Park. We call it that because it's located in the middle of Northern Wisconsin's Lake Country. Here there are thousands of lakes, rivers and streams that literally saturate the geography. And vacationers have long been visiting the Minocqua Area to enjoy all this water by boating, swimming, fishing, snowmobiling and more. There's no admission fees and we're open year round!
Snow Report from Travel Wisconsin
The Cross Country Cruisers
I hate to sound like a broken record, but what we had last weekend is pretty much what we are going to have this weekend. The trail from Lake Minocqua to 47 trail is fair. The 47 trail is good to very good. The 70 trail is fair to good. All the trails north of HWY 70 are good to very good. Expect some icy corners and some snurt near town.
Remember to use caution on Vandercook Rd, and obey the posted speed limit, watch for logging trucks.
There is still a few weeks of good riding here in Cruiser country, so get out and ride.
Remember to Ride Right, and to Ride safe. Have a great weekend!!

Minocqua Forest Riders Snowmobile Report
Weather conditions this past week have not changed much, which means the trails continue to vary from good, to in some stretches, excellent condition.
- The logging activity on the far west end of Corridor Trail 10 is still of concern. Watch out for icy spots. Also, a logging operation has begun on the north end of Club Trail 7. Ride with caution!
- Club Trails 5 and 5A have a very thin base. Beware of snow being washed out of the inside of some corners that wind through the wooded areas.
- Corridor Trail 12W (INT676 to INT662) still has numerous icy patches, mainly in the corners, that could cause you to lose control of your sled. Ride with extreme caution!
- Trail 5B in the southwest section of our system remains closed.
Thursday: Corridor Trail 12W (INT676 to INT662); Club Trails 5 (INT658 to INT652) & W

Wednesday Club Rides:
Our club is making an effort to sponsor a group ride every week. We start at The Black Bear Bar at10:00 AM and ride someplace for lunch. Destinations are determined on a weekly basis and are published on our website and on our Facebook page. The rides are open to everyone. I hope to see you at next week’s ride.
