Snowmobile Trail Reports


Here is the reroute map for the area affected by the work on the highline north of Merriweather. We’re working hard in conjunction with the DNR and the highline people to offer a safe alternate route over this period of work on the highline. It’s imperative that you abide by the reroute signing as there will be many workers plus heavy equipment in the area of the old trail. For their safety as well as theirs please stay on the marked trails…no short cuts. The green line (the temporary route for trail 8 and 1) comes off of trail 8 west on Pendock Road, but there will also be snowmobile signs directing you through this reroute. We’d like to thank you for your patience and cooperation with this unexpected reroute.

Ok, I did promise to let you snowmobilers know if we received anymore measurable snow this month…and we have. Probably about 8-inches with a bit more expected in our area tonight or maybe Friday a.m… However, it is supposed to warm up to about 40 on Saturday and creeks and streams are open, so if you come please avoid or use caution in these areas. Trails are still officially open until March 31st so this would be your absolute last chance to get any kind of riding in for this season. Some of our groomer drivers have been out on the trails doing some brushing so watch out for them if you do make it out there. Also, call ahead to your favorite destination as some businesses have closed for a little spring break. As always, ride responsibly and stay safe!

That’s all for now from Carolyn at the Hoop! For additional information about the Lake Gogebic area please visit the chamber website at or call us at 1-888-464-3242 (888-GOGEBIC). Have a great summer and we’ll see all you snowmobilers again next winter…if not before!
